What you'll do
We’ll start our journey at Omicho Market -- the hub of Kanazawa’s food culture. Here, we’ll explore the stalls and wind our way through the bustling crowds to seek out the best in-season ingredients, and choose fresh seafood and vegetables that we’ll use during our cooking class. Once we’ve chosen our ingredients, we’ll head our way back to the kitchen! I’ll teach you tips and tricks on how to cook, along with the history behind the food and ingredients. After we have cooked, all there is left to do is to eat a delicious home-cooked Kanazawa meal! Taste what you have learned, and relax and enjoy what you have created. The lunch meal is enough to fuel you for an entire day of sightseeing.
Lunch: Full meal that includes rice, soup, sashimi, and several dishes that you will learn to cook.
All cooking equipment & ingredients will be provided
Hi! My name is Naoko! I am a food coordinator in Kanazawa, and I will teach you everything you need to know about Kanazawa food. I used to work in the entertainment industry, but decided to become a cooking teacher 2 years ago. I grew up in this city, and have always had a love for this city’s food culture since I was young. My mother is also a cooking teacher, and taught me everything I need to know about Kanazawa cuisine. Learn about Kanazawa history through delicious recipes, and experience a different side of Japan with me!
