PROFILE

Hideo was born in Yotsuya, Tokyo. His father was a playwright and owned two Japanese restaurants, Kihei of Tokyo and Misuji, where he commenced his training, whilst still at school at Shinjuku High School and through to Nihon University. Hideo learnt from his parents the principles of sushi and kappo-ryori food preparation, cooking and presentation. These methods have been passed down through generations of his family. At the same time, he learnt the philosophy of Chakaiseki (the tea ceremony cuisine), Teikanryu Shodô (Calligraphy), Ikenobou-Ryuseiha (flower arrangement) and Hôchô Shiki (the cooking knife ceremony) under the tutelage of Shijyoushinryu by Iemoto-Shishikura Soken-Sensei.

After years of cooking and demonstrating in Japan, Hideo's interests led him to Europe to study classical French cuisine, England and then the United States, where he was able to combine his skills in Japanese and European cuisine by working as a demonstrator in California.

In 1972 Hideo visited Australia for the first time and settled in Sydney in 1974. He set up Japanese Functions of Sydney, the first Japanese catering company in Sydney, which was highly successful. He has lectured in several places and has now opened Culinary Studio Dekura in Chatswood.

Hideo is a master of Shijoshin-ryu in Sydney. Furthermore he is a member of Food Professional Australia, (formally Food Media Australia), Japan Master Chef Association, and a lecturer at the Sydney Sea Food School.

He is the author of several Japanese cooking books and cooking videos.

In 2007 and 2015 Hideo was presented with an award from the Japanese Government to those who have made significant contributions to the promotion of Japanese food and cooking.

In 2016 He was appointed as Goodwill Ambassador for Japanese Cuisine.

Basic Sushi


This was a great hands-on experience. We made sushi and nigiri and also learned how to create simple but elegant garnishes. We learned very useful tips and what I liked about the class is that I walked away feeling like I could replicate this at home. The amount of sushi we made was more than enough to fill us up, the teacher offered us takeaway boxes for the leftovers! The cooking studio was very clean, yet homely. My only critique is that at times the direction of the class was unclear and we'd be cutting things or doing tasks but unsure of why, but it all made sense in the end.

Hideo san's kitchen was a wonderful set up for a cookery class and my son and I really enjoyed learning more about Japanese cooking and some of the ingredients we are looking forward to using in the future. Thanks for my Xmas present Eliot!

Sushi and Sashimi Master Class


The teacher has in-depth knowledge of Japanese cuisine and is great at directing the class. The venue is conducive for learning as it is very quiet and has all the necessary materials and equipment, everything was provided from the aprons, knives, handouts, etc.
We learned a lot about choosing which ingredients to procure and where to get them, the process of making miso soup, filleting and boning fish, blanching baby octopus, making japanese-style omelette, sushi rice, different types of sushi, sashimi and nigiri, and beautiful garnishes. Overall, great value for money; aside from the learning, the best part is you get to eat your creation with your new friends! Highly recommended!
