Kitchen Fun

Emi was friendly and picked me up from the local station. We talked about the many things there are to do in Tokyo as we made some traditional Japanese dishes. We listened to some bossa nova music and Emi helped me find locations of places to visit during my stay. Afterwards, she showed me the local supermarket where I bought some Japanese snacks. Unforgettable experience!

It was a simple yet amazing meal cooked at Emi’s residence. Lovely flavour. Emi was hospitable and patient in guiding us through the steps to make gyoza. The end product was simply delicious! Thank you, Emi!

We made a side dish, learned how to cook proper japanese rice, miso soup, and we wished for gyoza as a main dish. It was sooo delicious and super easy to prepare, so you can definitely do it at home yourself. She is such a openminded person speaks real good english and answers all your questions. She even did a spontaneous supermarkt tour with us :) Money well spent!

The simple science and art of traditional Japanese cooking from a local

We enjoyed our dinner experience with Emi very much. We learned how to cook a traditional Japanese meal and learned many tips and tricks that we will use at home. We also learned about the intriguing concept of umami - the fifth flavour in Japanese cooking. The meal was delicious (oishii). Highly recommended!

Amazing food and delightful instructor! Emi was very kind, funny and a knowledgeable chef! We made two chicken dishes, miso soup, and sesame seed and spinach salad. We had such a fantastic time chatting, laughing and learning from Emi in our private session with her. Definitely recommend!

We had a great night cooking with Emi, she explained some traditional Japanese ingredients and techniques we made and ate a delicious meal, and had a great time discussing everything from travel to food to politics. Her English is excellent and the opportunity for some genuine cultural exchange is very much appreciated. Arigato Goziaimasu...say hello to Honda-san for us!

My husband and I had unforgettable experience at Emi's cooking class. We've been to Japan several times and wanted to do something different this time. The location was very easy to find, Food we've learned was Japanese home style which I wanted to learn. Emi kindly sent us email with pictures and recipes after class so we can try make at home. She is such a lovely lady also speaks good English. Definitely recommend to people those want to learn more culture and food of Japan.
