Cooking Class - "Takoyaki & Okonomiyaki": Osaka Street Foods

You’ll be craving these hot and savory Japanese snacks long after your first bite.

Forget pretzels and peanuts—Japanese bar food is by far superior (and way more flavorful). Takoyaki is a bite-sized ball of deliciousness, featuring a soft center of chopped-up octopus and a crispy outside covered in Japanese mayo, rich sauce, and topped with bonito flakes. Okonomiyaki, which comes from a Japanese phrase meaning “whatever you want,” is a savory pancake featuring just that—pork belly, shrimp, mochi, cheese or any topping to your heart’s desire. Once Chef Yoko teaches you how to make these, snacking at home will never be the same.

Guests are welcome to bring beer and wine to enjoy with your meal.

If you are looking to book a fun and educational sushi making class with an authentic Japanese chef, you should book with Chef Yoko. She is nice, very knowledgable and creates a fun cooking class environment. Her venue is centrally located in Downtown LA and not far away from all the happening in the city. Definitely a great cooking class that I recommend to anyone in Los Angeles. By the way, as a bonus, she also handed out Japanese ice cream that she had made which was divine.

Chef Yoko’s passion for food spans all the way back to her Japanese foodie family. Growing up, she learned her mother’s culinary skills in the kitchen while she watched how her grandfather made traditional tofu & her grandmother worked the art of the tea ceremony. These influences resulted in a lifelong love affair with Japanese cooking, where today Yoko leads a successful career as a Japanese cooking instructor and lecturer, infusing her teaching with the cultural aspects of Japan's rich food.
