In one day, you can master the fundamentals of healthy and easy Japanese Cooking in a hands-on and fun workshop whilst gaining practical skills and knowledge. Save your time and money ($40 off) in this intensive workshop combining the Japanese Cooking Class (Beginner) and Matcha Lovers High Tea Cooking.

Follow detailed demonstrations by celebrated chef Yoshiko Takeuchi, who has had over twenty years experience and has frequented some of Sydney's top kitchens, authored two cookbooks and worked on shows like The Biggest Loser.

Did you know most Japanese restaurants use lots of MSG in their cooking? These restaurants also don’t use traditional ingredients meaning the food loses taste and nutrition! But don’t worry. This class is MSG-free and we will use only traditional, high-quality Japanese ingredients to make our food yummy and healthy.

You will follow traditional methods replicable at home, including essential Japanese seasonings, cooking techniques and a variety of yummy recipes.

Some examples from our Japanese Beginner class menu:

  • An understanding of basic Japanese seasonings
  • How to balance each meal
  • How to cook authentic rice
  • How to make vegetarian dashi stock
  • Miso soup (using homemade dashi/powdered dashi)
  • How to cook teriyaki
  • Making goma-ae (traditional Japanese salad) in two ways
  • Cooking perfect tempura served with dipping sauce
  • Basic knife skills

Some examples from our Matcha Lovers High Tea class menu:
  • Matcha coconut fudge
  • Matcha Blancmange
  • Two-colour Mochi ball with Yuzu and Matcha An-paste
  • Cold Soba with Matcha Broth
  • Matcha Popcorn
  • Yuzu Matcha Mocktail
  • Organic Matcha green tea and alkaline mineral water

All classes served with alkaline water and Matcha green tea.
