Classes with the Goodwill Ambassador for Japanese Cuisine

4.9 (64)

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.

Mr Dekura's class was really good. Making noodles was fun and the recipe followed the traditional method.
We cooked and ate delicious fresh shio ramen and it was nice to share the meal with the class and get to chat with such an experienced Japanese cuisine connoisseur.
Thank you.

The ramen class was a great experience. You learn to make hand made noodles in a very unique way. I would highly recommend this class. You get to enjoy your beautiful dish at the end of your class with your host and fellow students.

What was the highlight? Kneading the ramen with our feet; hearing many facets of Japanese culture while learning to cook; tasting our creation?
Dekura-san was very patient and attentive while letting me and my 12 year-old companions have a very hands on experience.
Clean and roomy premises with a strong attention to hygiene suitable for the current circumstances
Highly recommended

The teacher is an author or several Japanese cook books and is clearly knowledgeable in all things Japan! The class is a great couple or singles activity and great for groups of friends too. The kitchen is clean and well maintained and you are provided with the best quality ingredients. Overall a fun experience with delicious ramen to enjoy at the end!

Brett Fisher • Mar 2020

Teacher very helpful on different ingredients used even catered for vegan. Delish options and very easy class to learn

Marian Afinidad • Mar 2020

The ramen culinary class with Hideo-san was an experience I cannot wait to repeat. My partner and I were lucky enough to be the only ones in the class for today and it was an intimate and enjoyable experience. Hideo-san’s kitchen was clean and organised, with all ingredients and required materials fresh and ready. He was also an intriguing conversationalist, with plenty of stories to tell and recommendations to provide for our next visit to Japan. We will definitely be returning for his sushi class! Hideo-san, arigatou-gozaimasu!

Sonia Cuan • Mar 2020

Dekura-san was an excellent teacher. He explained everything very well and assisted each student individually. The facilities were very spacious. The class size was the optimum size. I was very impressed by the quality of the class and would be more than happy to consider taking another class run by Dekura-san.

Joan Ting • Mar 2020

Fun learning to make ramen. Amazing teacher. Venue is great and we had a great time learning from scratch the classic way of making ramen.

Jenny Ahern • Feb 2020

Loved this class, I love ramen and this was a wonderful intro into making it at home. Did this on my own, but a mixture of groups and people on there own, very relaxed and fun atmosphere. Highly recommend giving this a go!

Raymond Tan • Feb 2020

Our sensei, Mr Dekura, is warm and friendly. The class size is small (7 students) and atmosphere is relax. We learned about making Ramen noodles from scratch using some traditional techniques. We also witnessed the preparation of the broth. Finally we enjoyed eating a bowl of our own noodle with our selection of condiments.

Barinya Seresirikachorn • Feb 2020

The ramen tasted pretty good, but it was on a healthy, less fatty side rather than a typical fatty Tonkotsu. This course would be very helpful for beginners who know nothing about ramen-making. He was a really kind instructor and explained the steps clearly.
