What you'll do
I'll pick you up at the Caltrain Tamein station. From there, we'll head to my organic vegetable garden for a tour and to learn about the ingredients we'll be using. Once we enjoy the garden, we'll head to my bright and airy home kitchen where we will cook together and learn how to use our beautiful fresh vegetables to make delicious side dishes and Japanese pancakes (Okonomiyaki). As we cook, I'll also give you tips on healthy cooking in your own home. After we've finished cooking, we'll sit down together and share our delicious, healthy meal!

I am passionate about healthy cooking and am a published cookbook author about the "Soshoku" style (simple) of Japanese cooking. I was a national tennis player in Japan & United States so a healthy lifestyle is very important for me. My authentic Japenses cooking class uses the most seasonal, fresh house grown organic vegetables harvested that same day. I will offer vegetable garden tour & cooking class after the tour. I use only most safe, authentic ingredients made from scratch such as home made miso, pickled plum etc. which guest can not taste somewhere else. Also I will teach healthy life style not only food but also how to choose healthy food, how to eat healthy so you can apply this lesson at your own lifestyle.
