What you'll do

If you have an egg and a chicken in your refrigerator, I really would love you to join me in making a bento box. This tasty and easy bento box will be easy to follow the instructions through online and will be perfect for lunch or dinner on your table!
We will make Japanese egg omelets (tamagoyaki) with a regular frying pan. After we make egg omelets, we will use the same frying pan to make a Teriyaki chicken ball with original homemade teriyaki sauce.
I will demonstrate how to serve egg omelets and teriyaki chicken ball with rice, green lettuce, fruit(any kinds like apple or grapes you have) in the bento box or a glass plastic container, or wood box...
If you do not have rice, you can serve without rice or if you have bread, let’s serve bread in the bento box!! Please do not worry if you don't haveJapanese rice, any kind of rice will be great!!
For this online cooking class, I will use basic Japanese food ingredients: soy sauce, sake (white wine is O.K.).
Bento box power is amazing! It helps save you time to make lunch or dinner ahead and reducing washing dishes. I hope you will save time for taking care of yourself and enjoy the bento box!!
I will making bento box from our home kitchen in Nara, Japan. I will use Zoom some can interact and cook together. Let's have fun!!
Other things to note
Any device that can operate Zoom will be fine.

I am so grateful to have a chance to share making a Japanese style obento box with online cooking classes from our home kitchen.
I learned how to cook Japanese foods (Washoku) from my family - especially from my grandmother and mother.
They made many different lunch boxes for me called “obento”. For special events like cherry blossom viewing under the tree, picnic, camping, and school lunch etc, I have many memories and stories with obento and they are unforgettable.
To me, it is not just cooking; It is cooking together to create unforgettable memories in our lives. Now, I am very thankful to share how to make an obento box with you from our home kitchen.
Cooking at our home kitchen face to face will be seen by:

やすさん is a very careful person. She will introduce the teaching materials in detail one by one. The teaching process is also a gradual and meticulous teaching. Seemingly simple dishes, but you have to study carefully one by one, in order to learn the soul of the dishes

A fun approach to Bento and what makes a good meal. A very convenient recipe I definitely feel like I could use frequently.

Yasuyo is an incredibly gracious, thoughtful, and knowledgeable host for this experience. I decided to take her bento box class with a group of friends for my birthday party and I have to say the experience was a delight from start to finish, exceededing our expectations. In the weeks prior to the event, Yasuyo was very good about communicating and tailoring the class to our needs. During the class, she walked us through each step carefully, making sure everyone was on the same page, and shared stories with us about her mother and cooking experience. By the end, we had delicious dishes and a lovely group photo. I'm proud to say I know how to make a homemade teriyaki sauce, chicken meatballs, and omurice now in Yasuyo's style. The omurice in particular was a hit with my friends. I'm sure we'll be making it again and again in our homes. Yasuyo's talent as a guide made a lasting impression on us. I hope I can organize something with her again, and if you're thinking about booking a class, I can highly recommend it!
