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 & Matcha An-paste
* Cold Soba with Matcha Broth
* Matcha Popcorn
* Yuzu Matcha Mocktail
* Organic Matcha green tea and alkaline mineral water
