What you'll do

We’ll walk through my neighborhood and past the famous streets in the old town. When we arrive at my renovated kitchen, we'll prepare rice and vegetables. These maki is NOT raw fish, I will cook for ingredients.

I’ll explain the ingredients we'll use and how to make creative fusion rolls and Japanese sauce based on my own recipes. I’ll dish up the maki on a plate and teach you how to make it look as beautiful as it tastes. My menu will be composed of miso soup, deep-fried chicken ( or soy meat ), Four fusion rolls —about 10 pieces in total. I will maybe use Shrimp, Crab..etc For Vegetarian, basically the same sauce but i will use all vegetables :)

For vegetarian (vegan) or some allergies people, I can customize the menu to suit your physical constitution or conditions.

See you soon !

Before working as a private chef in France, I worked at a California roll restaurant and in a fusion restaurant each for two years in Japan. While living in France, I was surprised at the difference in Japanese maki. During my experience, I want to show you how to make my creative fusion roll, my Japanese sauce. Please taste it ! Welcome to also vegetarian & vegan.

Tomok hat alle Schritte des Maki-Machens sehr liebevoll erklärt und aus vielen kleinen Details entstand plötzlich eine wunderschöne und sehr leckere große Sushiplatte. Wir haben viele gute Tipps mitgenommen und werden diese auch umsetzen, denn der Kurs ist sehr praktisch orientiert. Was den Kurs aber besonders ausmacht, ist die persönliche Note. Man bekommt als Tourist Einblick in eine Welt, die sonst einem verborgen bleibt. Es hat unseren Tokioaufenthalt sehr bereichert. Danke Tomok

Very good experience on the first day of 2020. We successfully made Japanese Maki of our own, which was fantastic. Tomok is quite a kind host with fluent English. She has done much preparation before meeting us. The house is located in a tranditional area of Tokyo named Yanaka and I like it very much.

This was a most amazing experience I will remember for my whole life. My main goal was to learn how to make sushi rice. Tomok showed us so much more. She gave us a tour of her town and then took us to her apartment where she showed us how to make traditional makis. I learned how to make sushi rice, dashi, the different types of soy paste and how to present our food as well as make the rolls. Thank you Tomok!

This was a lovely experience with Tomok, who is a friendly and generous person. The experience started with a small local market tour, where near by her Kitchen with a few of traditional stores. During the short walk, you could feel her passions for the culture and the friendship between local neighborhood. She taught us to make various kind of sushi rolls, deep fried chicken and carp soup. Different from the fancy Japanese restaurant cuisine I knew from my city, Tomok introduced the home cook style and the recipe that a surprised me by its simplicity and delicious combination. I really enjoyed the dinner and definitely going to make the pickled plum and perilla roll at home!

This is my 2nd experience with Tomok san, and as always she provides excellent hospitality and creates really wonderful japanese dishes. It is not only just a "learn how to make" session, Tomok san will also guide on the presentation of the dishes. Overall the entire session had been very interactive and fun, and one is sure to leave with a happy stomach. :) will not hesitate to return for more experiences with Tomok san!

A very memorable and highly recommended experience. Tomok greeted us at the station and gave a short insightful walking tour of the local area before welcoming us into her charming studio. Over the next few hours, under Tomok's informative and detailed instruction, we made miso soup, a variety of makis and teriyaki chicken. They looked and tasted great - we had a feast!
