Japanese Cooking Class: Superfoods as Medicine



Loved this class so much! Yoshiko is so engaging and the food was absolutely yummy and so healthy as well. I’m booking another class right away Thank you Yoshiko


Barbara Quinlan May 2021

Japanese Cooking Class: Superfoods as Medicine



The Japanese Superfoods as Medicine hands-on cooking class was a superb, excellent experience. Absolutely chaotic and abuzz with Yoshiko bustling around keeping us on track, yelling out the 'darling's and the 'bloody' this or thats. All came together remarkably with so many delightful dishes. And more: The teacher claimed she learnt English in restaurant kitchens - hence the language. However, her organisation skills with different tables being nominated to prepare various dishes, individuals co-opted for individual tasks, swaps made when necessary  + more

Japanese Cooking Class: Superfoods as Medicine



Very fun cooking class. Yoshiko is funny and knows her stuff. The food was delicious and we learned a lot and I can’t wait to start cooking like that at home. I definitely felt like her food is delicious medicine. It was a lot of unique food and worth the price Bring some friends.

Japanese Cooking Class (Intermediate)



Yoshiko was and accomplished conductor in a precisely and efficiently orchestrated operation where nothing was missing or overlooked and everything run smoothly, with utensils and ingredients appearing magically in front of you when they were needed and disappearing once they were no longer needed! All the ingredients were of high quality, usually organic and had to satisfy Yoshiko's high standards. We prepared a number of dishes, ate them at the end and learned about their health properties and what to look for when buying ingredients. It was intense,  + more

Yoshito was an excellent teacher with a great sense of humour. She obviously knew Japanese cuisine exceptionally well and I loved the tips regarding healthy choices I cook regularly so didn’t find the course challenging It was however very enjoyable and enjoyed the food we made Would probably like to do another class

Japanese Cooking Class (Beginner)



All measures were in place for an absolutely Covid safe, very well organised and smooth running two hour session packed with information, demonstration and preparation of six very tasty dishes which we got to savour at the end. The recipes for each dish will allow us to practice at home. A good introductory course to Japanese cooking.

Superfood Ramen Cooking Class



The class is a group cooking class ie. you don't do every aspect of the cooking yourself, instead the work is divided among the group and everyone gets to be involved. The class is informative, helpful and yummy! Have since made the recipe at home and it turned out exactly as the class.


Jonathan Papworth Jan 2021

Superfood Gyoza Cooking Class



Yoshiko was engaging, and did so well to involve everyone. Had a great time! Maybe clearly define what tables/teams cook which gyoza at the start to help with the flow of the class, but genuinely everything went fantastic


Luke Burlet Jan 2021

I highly recommend this Japanese Cooking Class (beginner)! The class breaks down some really useful basics - like how to cook rice properly, and how to make your own teriyaki sauce :) Yoshiko is a great instructor, creating a relaxed environment for learning as well as making cooking fun! If you're sitting on the fence about giving something like this a try, I am here to tell you - go for it! You won't have any regrets.


Peta Walton Nov 2020

I really enjoyed the class, it was the first time I had done any Japanese cooking and I found that the instructions were clear and the class was well structured and easy to do. The food was delicious and the instructor provided many helpful tips and tricks for how to cook everything properly and authentically. The class also provided insight into more traditional Japanese ingredients and what to avoid in stores when cooking Japanese food at home. I would definitely recommend this class especially to those who enjoy cooking but don’t have experience  + more

Japanese Cooking Class (Beginner)



Thank you Yoshiko. This was a fun class and it was great to learn a couple of really good foundations. Just knowing how to do rice via absorption method was great! The second foundation I took away was dashi stock. And lastly, I learned that boiling certain things ruins them and this is where I have been going wrong with miso soup! The food was delicious. Yoshiko was fun. I think this class could benefit from 30 minutes more. Sometimes the information came so quickly, that I missed it which is a shame.

Yoshiko the teacher really knows her food and her matcha. She gave us a good overview of the background of matcha. The whole cooking process was pretty fun, and we learnt what was important when it comes to using matcha to cook. We made soba in matcha dashi soup, matcha blancmange with adzuki beans, matcha mochi, matcha coconut fudge, and a Yuzu matcha mocktail. We finished every bit of the food that we made from scratch - very yummy! Environment was clean and pleasant, though I wished we could have a cooking station each so we could be more hands-on.  + more

Yoshiko is a very vibrant, knowledgeable and giving lady. Her style of teaching and encouraging participants is unique. Her recipes are easy to follow and she offers for sale key ingredients such would normally be hard to find. Her assistant Maya is the absolute foundation for each class The venue is acceptable but classes should be capped to many in a class means is harder to work safely.

When I looked at the ingredients I wasn't sure that they would have much taste but they all tasted great and were very filling. Yoshiko is a great teacher and she had us all engaged in the class at all times.

Super Kids Sushi Making Class (8-16 Years)



My Sushi loving daughter and I enjoyed a most enjoyable day learning how to make authentic sushi with Yoshiko. The venue was clean and modern and the ingredients provided were fresh and healthy. Yoshiko was delightful, constantly involving the kids in all aspects of the sushi making process then in a nice touch, turning the tables and getting the kids to teach the adults what they had learnt.

Japanese Cooking Class (Beginner)



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.

Superfood Ramen Cooking Class



Learned lot of useful skills, just hope every student would have individual stove so that we can get our hands on from the beginning to the end, rather than each person only takes one part in the whole process.

Superfood Ramen Cooking Class



Been looking forward to my second class and wasn't disappointed! Yoshiko delighted us with an array of dishes from salad dressing to ramen, dairy free blancmange and matcha green tea. A very interactive and informative session would highly recommend thank you Yoshiko and Maja.
