Discover the culinary traditions of Japan in Osaka, one of Japan’s best food cities, during this small-group cooking lesson. Learn the preparation methods for popular Japanese dishes including green tea, takoyaki (fried balls of wheat flour and octopus), okonomiyaki (savoury pancakes), and miso soup. You'll expand your Japanese cuisine knowledge, and best of all, you get to eat your creations when you’re finished. This small-group course, limited to just eight participants, also includes a guide, a cooking instructor, and an optional sake and beer tasting.
What to Expect
Receive a fun, delicious introduction to the world of Japanese cooking as you learn to prepare three of the country’s most-popular dishes during a 2.5-hour, small-group lesson. You can further add to the fun with an optional add-on of a beer and sake tasting.
Start your class in the morning, meeting your guide at JR Morinomiya Station in Osaka and continuing on to the cooking studio.
Start your class by following your instructor to prepare miso soup, a dish where subtle differences in technique can have large impacts on the final dish. Then try your hand at making takoyaki—fried balls of wheat flour batter stuffed with octopus. You'll also learn to prepare okonomiyaki, a filling pancake made with egg, flour, cabbage, pork and dried bonito flakes.
Once you’ve completed your cooking, enjoy your finished food with an optional sake and beer pairing, or simply sit back and savor the delicious flavors of your meal with the other guests.
Before you leave, you'll also try Taiyaki  (a fish-shaped cake) and Matcha tea.
