There are lots of delicious homemade meals in Japan more than you know. I'd like to tell you some of the dishes you can replicate easily with basic cooking science. I hope it'll be your memorable event in Japan. Let's cook together!

    Udon cooking class
    The cooking class with Yurico was a highlight of our trip to Tokyo. We made udon with chicken and leeks + green beans and eggplant. The food was delicious and we learnt so much. Thank you Yurico for welcoming us into your home!

    A wonderful experience!
    Cooking with Yurico is an amazing experience. She gave our family a warm welcome and made us feel right at home. We learned how to make udon noodles with pork, Japanese omelet, and green beans with sesame seeds. She explained how to prepare each ingredient and each step in cooking. She also taught us how to present the dishes for serving. We learned a lot about Japanese culture and cuisine. The dishes we cooked with her were delicious and she took pictures of us cooking and gave us the recipes for everything. This is a very special experience. Yurico is a wonderful person and an excellent teacher. I highly recommend this experience.

    Learning Japanese cuisine on Japanese home kitchen
    My wife and our two daughters (13 and 18) came to Japan for the first time. Naturally, we wanted to see as much as possible amid sakura blossoming, and put together a pretty intensive 12 nights itinerary. Japanese cuisine was also in focus for us, not only because we love it, but also because our youngest is passionate about cooking. Our guide advised us to book a class with Yuriko in advance. We arrived at her very cosy house, maybe some 15 minutes from Ginza where we stayed, in late morning after having early breakfast at Tsukiji market, so we were not very hungry. It’s been agreed by mail that we will cook from scratch Kitsune Udon (noodles handmade by ourselves), Green beans in sesame sweet dressing and Dorayak, Japanese pancakes. My initial thought was that 1,5-2 hours would be enough for this experience, but it was all so entertaining, culturally enriching and thorough in every detail that we didn’t notice how the allotted three hours flew by. We were amazed at how organized and clean Yuriko's kitchen was during all phases of food processing. The food we prepared and ate with great appetite at Yuriko’s house turned out to be one of the best gastronomic experiences of our Japanese trip (and we, like real gourmets, ate a lot of different and interesting Japanese food during this trip). My family and especially daughters were all absolutely delighted and recalled this visit to Yuriko frequently during our Japanese journey and after returning home. Thank you, Yuriko!

We had a great experience at Yurico's cooking class. We learned to make handmade udon noodles, dashi broth, and several sides. Yurico gave us practical cooking tips based on both her formal training and everyday experience. We highly recommend this class!

Would HIGHLY recommend any family visiting Tokyo take a cooking class with Yurico. We did the class with our 7 and 9-year old daughters. Yurico was amazing at working with both kids -- no small feat when you are trying to teach and cook a varied meal at the same time. She taught all of us so much. Our meal was delicious. We loved getting to see Yurico's home, and also a part of Tokyo we might not have visited otherwise. The cooking class was a perfect, much-needed complement to seeing other (busy) sights and neighborhoods in Tokyo.

When we travel we always try to take a private cooking class. It is even more special when it is in someone’s home because they share their stories with you, as well as family recipes. Cooking with Yurico was this, and much more! From the outset, she worked with me to come up with a special menu since I don’t like pork or chicken thighs. When we arrived at her home, she had tea set out for us and talked about her background and the recipes. We made the most delicious udon noodles by hand (and by foot!). She told us it is traditional to cover the dough with plastic wrap and a towel and to walk on it in order to flatten it! The noodles and broth were so delicious, as were the string beans with sesame dressing and grilled eggplant side dishes! If you are visiting Tokyo, DON’T MISS THIS CLASS!!

If there's one thing to do in Japan, it's to take a cooking class with Yurico! We brought our 9-month old son along and she was such a lovely host. She made sure we were comfortable and our son was setup in the living area while we cooked away in the kitchen. It's one of the reasons we chose to go with Yurico - no issues with bringing babies to her cooking classes.

We learned so much from her throughout the process. I was afraid of deep frying but that's why we took her class on Chicken Katsu Curry! She went into the detail about the cooking process and the reactions that occur while deep frying. We also made 2 side dishes that were so quick and easy to make. Everything was so so tasty! She's broke everything down so well that we feel confident we can make these recipes again at home.

Loved that she took pictures throughout the experience and then shared them plus the recipes after the class. We will definitely take her class again when we visit Japan again.

Yurico was an excellent host for our cooking class, giving us so much insight into what we were cooking, both from the traditional/at-home perspective and from a restaurant point of view. We really felt comfortable at Yurico’s beautiful home and as a private lesson we could ask all the questions we wanted. The end dish was delicious (we made kitsune udon including our own noodles) and was followed by a relaxed calligraphy class. Thank you Yurico!

Yurico is such a wonderful host! She made us feel right at home and is very knowledgeable and passionate about food, ingredients, and the culture behind it all. We made Okonomiyaki with miso soup, grilled eggplant, and sesame green beans.

Yurico is also very passionate about calligraphy, we had a great time learning how write different characters and their meaning. Even if we didn't do any of those activities, Yurico is such a warm and inviting person that our visit was unforgettable. Definitely glad we were able to meet!
