Traditional Cooking in Kyoto
- Half Day
Today's cooking class can start at 9:30 or 14:00. Get a true 'taste' of Japan with a fun, half-day cooking class in Kyoto. Meet with the cook at a central Kyoto location and let the culinary adventure begin!

Join the local food expert to prepare a traditional Japanese meal. The cook will share techniques used to prepare the ingredients to create truly authentic dishes. Listen as the cook tells personal stories about food and explains more about the nuances of Japan's culinary culture. This provides a great glimpse into the often-misunderstood traditions and gestures that accompany a Japanese dining experience.

 

For the morning class, the menu is an o-bento. This is the iconic Japanese lunch box, prepared at home or sold at convenience stores, train stations and other places around town. Cook the five typical dishes of a bento, including sushi, tempura and egg rolls.

 

The afternoon lesson focuses on izakaya cuisine, the food found at popular Japanese-style pubs. Intended to accompany beer, the dishes include steamed egg custard and steamed rice with fish broth.

Once the dishes are ready, sit down for a hearty meal. Share stories while savouring the flavours of authentic, home-cooked Japanese cuisine. The Kyoto cooking class concludes after the meal, bidding farewell to the cook and returning to the hotel.
