What you'll do

After meeting at north gate of JR Tabata station, Yamanote-line (The main line in Tokyo), we move to my private kitchen studio.

We start the class with the lecture about Japanese cuisine & lifestyle. Then, we start cooking Ramen broth and soup from the scratch!

In addition to Ramen, I'll teach how to make crispy and juicy "Gyoza pizza" which looks like a beautiful flower as well as Today's side dish.

After tasting the final products paring with premium sake,I'll guide you to the local supermarket (where I go everyday) and introduce you to other foods and offer shopping tips.

* This is Home-style Ramen & Gyoza class so we don't make egg noodles and gyoza wrappers from scratch in this class. (Just in case, those recipes are on my YouTube channel already. Please subscribe "YUCa's Japanese Cooking"!) You can learn how to make Dashi soup broth and ramen soup from scratch. Thank you for understanding.

* Since I hold classes at my private home kitchen, each class is 6-7 guests maximum.

We had an amazing time with YUCa! The dishes were delicious and she takes her time to explain the reasoning behind the each ingredient. She’s also so warm and welcoming and her home is beautiful and feels like a professional kitchen!

What a wonderful morning spent at Yuca’s! She is so thoughtful and thorough in her teaching process, that I really felt like I could leave here and take these recipes home to easily recreate. Yuca herself is so friendly and personable, we really enjoyed getting to spend the time in her home. 10/10 would recommend!

The host is very kind, respectful, and polite during the cooking activities. Let the guests be involved in the preparation and actual cooking with clear instructions. My wife and I enjoyed the cooking experience. We are inspired by the interior design of the place with the right space, proximity, light, and material. Kitchenware and equipment are very clean, accessible, and organized. You feel cooking at your own place.
