Up to 3 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

During this experience, you'll feel the cozy atmosphere of the izakaya—the Japanese gastropub. You'll come to my home and I'll share my tips and recipes on how to cook izakaya's two staple dishes—yakitori and tsukune. Yakitori is a Japanese-style satay with a simple seasoning of either salt and pepper or Teriyaki sauce. Meanwhile, tsukune is a meatball made from minced chicken, egg, green onion, and tofu. Both are popular with people of all ages. I will also teach you how to make dashi—the Japanese soup base used for miso soup. Hands-on cooking time will be around two hours, and then we’ll enjoy eating this homemade meal together. My goal is to share a precious, fun, and unforgettable time with people from different cultural backgrounds. I am opening my home kitchen so you can take a peek into the lifestyle of a Japanese family.

I'm a home chef and I run a home cooking event in Osaka. Having a meal can sometimes be just a routine task in our daily life. But if we appreciate it, it becomes very precious, especially when we are with others. I wish to share this special time with many people from all over the world. I look forward to cooking with all of you. https://www.tummymore.com/

Where you'll be

Our home kitchen is open for you to create memories. It takes only 20 minutes to get here by subway from central Osaka. Osaka Castle Park is nearby, and I recommend you visit there before or after cooking.

It was just so amazing experience! Yui is very friendly, explains everything well in details and include everyone in the preparation of the Yakitori, Tsukune (Japanese meat balls) and miso soup so everyone feels involved. The result was delicious and we learned some tricks as well. We had a wonderful time cooking together with Yui in her cozy house. And we also had a great talk with Yui to share our own travel experience in different countries. Yui nice to meet you and thank you!

Voor ons was de workshop overpriced en niet zo bijzonder. Thuis maken wij het ook een weinig dingen geleerd. Iets met verwacht dan drie kwartier kip omdraaien op laag vuur. Jammer, wel hele vriendelijke vrouw, maar wij gaven aan geen tofu te lusten, zij wilde het toch maken en na het maken zei ze dat het orginele recept zonder tofu was, nou zaten we daar met onze stokjes.....

Definitely one of my best traveling experiences! Yui and her husband were such a delight to be with. She taught several useful tricks for dealing with Japanese food, techniques I doubt you can learn anywhere else but in her experience. I would recommend this experience for anyone who visits Osaka ~

This has been a great experience, learning something new and tasty. Both Yui and her husband are lovely and welcoming. Yui takes you step by step on what ingredients and preparations to making the dishes. I recommend anyone/everyone to take this class.
