What you'll do

In this class I will teach you how to make Japanese souffle pancakes from scratch. Japanese souffle pancakes are a light, fluffy, mouthwatering treat that are served in cafes all over Japan. These pancakes are a fun addition your breakfast, brunch or dessert repertoire. Since making these pancakes can be tricky, we will make the pancakes one at a time to practice and I will teach you all the tips you need to make the perfect pancakes. In total we will make 2 fluffy pancakes.

This experience is great for team-building and private groups. I accept requests for private classes so even if you don't see an open date on my published calendar, please send me a note and we can discuss date/time for your private group. Is your group larger than my listed max group size for private groups? Send me a message!

My public class schedule is up to date and I do not open up public classes outside of what is on my calendar. Private classes start at $220 for up to 10 people and $22 per person after that. Discounted rates are available for larger groups over 25 people.

What to bring

  • hand mixer or stand mixer (hand whisk can be used instead to make meringue but electric mixer is much easier)

I was born and raised in a rural community in southern Japan and have been passionate about cooking from a very young age. As is common in Japan, I grew up in a home with three generations and spent all my time with my grandmother in the kitchen. She taught me everything I know about cooking.

I host two other Airbnb Japanese cooking experiences with over 195 reviews, all five stars. I was awarded the Bay Area "Quality Champion" award by Airbnb for receiving the highest quality scores on my cooking experiences. I have also hosted many virtual team building activities for companies all over the world, and am the cooking instructor at the Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Northern California where I offer online classes. My goal is to provide you with the best possible experience where you learn how to make authentic Japanese food.

Leading up to the event, Kenji was very responsive to any questions I had and helpful with booking. He was a fantastic host and was very kind and patient with my team throughout our souffle pancake lesson. He was able to give us each individual feedback on our batters to make sure the end result was great. And in case the pancakes didn't turn out, he was very knowledgeable and could tell us exactly how to make them better next time. The best part was the pancakes turned out delicious and I'm looking forward to making these for future get-togethers with friends. Thanks, Kenji, and highly recommend!

Kenji is the perfect personality to host this soufle pancake experience, always cheering everyone on, telling his own childhood stories and most importantly having fun with the activity :D I would definitely join in on more cooking experiences with him!

Cooking Japanese pancakes with Kenji was super fun and useful as a team building activity. He didn't only show how to cook the pancakes, but also told us the story how he learned it from his grandmother, he explained how to use specific products and checked every of us if we did it correctly, not to mention that details about the ingredients and everything needed for the cooking were send beforehand. And last but not least the pancakes were simply amazing! I already ordered a taller frying pan to try it again :D If you're looking for a fun and useful time spending, I highly recommend to cook with Kenji! And a personal huge thank you Kenji for an amazing evening ;)
