Cooking Class - Seafood Market Tour

Watch how a Japanese chef navigates the fish market, then learn how to work the best, freshest catches into enticing dishes.

Chef Yoko knows the ins and outs of the L.A. fish market like only a Japanese chef would. Let her guide you through the stalls to learn which fish are in season, each fish dealer’s favorites, and how they would recommend cooking each catch. After gaining valuable insider knowledge, you’ll head back to the workshop and learn how to prepare delicious Japanese-style fish dishes like a pro. Meet at the market at 8 AM, as it closes Saturday at 9 AM. Due to time constraints, please refrain from purchasing any seafood for yourself during the tour. You can place an order before the tour if you wish, and it’s cash only.

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.
