Yoshiko was very knowledgeable and engaging! My husband and I really enjoyed the course. There’s no free parking if you’re on a morning class so park at Westfield- it’s cheaper than street parking.

Yoshiko was an excellent teacher.
The venue was good, clean and intimate for class.
Materials used were good clean and professional.
The class was worth the money.
I learnt a lot about digestive health which is the reason I attended.
Yoshiko class was very informative and I intend to do Class 2.

More about this class

The Japanese have the longest life expectancy in the world, and the lowest obesity rates. Their diet is a contributor to this. 

Traditional Japanese diets are very healthy. The cuisine makes use of a wide variety of vegetables (including seaweed, which is low in calories but high in minerals), seafood (lower in calories compared to meat, and full of good fat), and fermented products like miso (which helps to ensure healthy functioning of our digestive systems). Yoshiko's cooking classes are an enjoyable and easy introduction to Japanese cooking. Learn about all the classic ingredients, and how best to prepare and serve them, in ways that are both traditional but also relevant to our modern lives.

You'll leave these short courses with practical new skills, a great memory, and of course a satisfied tummy.
