Hosted by Tokitarazu restaurant’s cooking school, Toki LABO, this hands-on cooking class lets you try your hand at preparing traditional Japanese cuisine (washoku), which was added to UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage list in 2013. You will learn about kaiseki (traditional course meals) and the basics of Japanese cuisine, for example how to make dashi (soup stock), how to make sumeshi (sushi rice), and how to use Japanese cooking utensils. Ideal for both beginners or more experienced cooks, the lesson features plenty of healthy and seasonal fresh ingredients, and also offers insight into local food culture and nutrition.
Classes are offered with English support on Saturdays and Sundays at Tokitarazu in Hiroo. Weekday classes are available on request. Visit their website to check out seasonal recipes.
