Cooking Class - Japanese Cooking 101: Omnivore

Workshop your Japanese cooking skills.

If you’re a carnivore or just like working with meat, this is where you’ll learn the basics in preparing it Japanese style. In two workshops, Chef Yoko will show you just how to take omnivore’s route in Japanese cooking, teaching fundamentals such as creating two essential Japanese stocks using bonito flakes and dried kelp, knife skills, and the ingredients, seasonings and cooking techniques necessary to creating this kind of cuisine. In this class you’ll be making seven to eight dishes together in a period of two hours. So, no omnivore’s dilemma here—just delicious Japanese food.

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.
