Cooking Class - Izakaya Favorites

Learn to prepare a variety of Japanese pub snacks in this cooking class with Chef Leslie.

In this Japanese cooking class, Chef Leslie will teach you to prepare a variety of snacks and dishes that come from izakaya, the pubs around Japan that serve food specifically to accompany drinks. You'll learn to prepare these savory nibbles, almost tapas-like in their role in Japanese cuisine, and can serve them at your next cocktail party alongside Japanese beer, whiskey, or sake.

Guests are welcome to bring their own wine, beer, sake, or Japanese whiskey to accompany the class.

What a fun class! Chef Leslie shared her stories from Japan and knowledge about where to find great ingredients. Her zaru soba was so refreshing! I had been wanting to go to an Izakaya restaurant, but now I think I might just invite some friends over and make some of Leslie's dishes!

I booked a vegetarian cooking class on Cozymeal with Chef Leslie and it couldn't have been better. The food, the atmosphere, the chef - everything was just right. Looking forward to my next event with Chef Leslie!

I consider Japanese cuisine to be the best in the world and my personal favorite. I often cook rustic, home-style "ofukuro no aji" dishes, literally translated as "mother's taste" cooking. My traditional Japanese food is clean and healthy, with a subtle balance of flavor. I also create original and modern Japanese recipes, based on my 5 years of living in Japan. I believe that cooking tells a story about the cook's life and I have many delicious stories yet to tell.
