Classes with the Goodwill Ambassador for Japanese Cuisine

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.

This was a superb class and very engaging. My son was just thrilled with his sushi platter. The instructors were very patient and gentle with the kids too. Highly recommend this, and will be booking in again in the future myself.

The classroom is a professional kitchen in a leafy suburb with good parking. Hideo Dekura is a licensed from Japan and does more than just kids sushi so he knows his subject matter and can answer adult questions as well. The sushi that we learned to make was very pretty. The kids had a great time. I truly liked Hideo a lot and would recommend this.

Interactive class led by friendly knowledgeable teacher who taught skills and shared his Japanese culture. Kids got to make their own sushi rolls, present them in a Japanese bowl, eat them and take any leftovers home. Highly recommend!

Priscilla Devigan Apr 2021

My sushi-loving 8 year old son enjoyed this class immensely, couldn’t stop talking about it all afternoon! He was very proud of his new sushi skills and loved the instructor who was so kind. The beautiful studio was easy to find and had plenty of street parking. Will definitely book in a class for myself soon. A+

It’s usually hit and miss with my daughter on new activities such as this, but she loved the class. The teacher was patient, welcoming and supportive and she had a fantastic time.

“Nice learning from a sushi master!”

He was very patient with the kids and explained why you roll the sushi in that way. The rolls were really yummy and overall a great experience for brand new and experienced cooks!
