Overview

I provide the classes, Japanese traditional cuisines - "Ichi-jyu Sansai", one main dish, two side dishes, rice, and soup and Wagashi (traditional Japnese sweets). I don’t intend this class to be a “cooking school’,” but I want you to feel relaxed and have fun cooking as if you were at home! I am open to any suggestions or ideas for what we can cook together in class. I hope that you can teach me some dishes from your country too! Please feel free to contact me if you are interested!

Sumi is a kind and flexible host. Her explanations during cooking and preparation were detailed. She also got to know us as we were cooking. The end product was ooishi :) Thank you, Sumi!
