Following up on my previous post regarding my health condition, test results are out and seem like I have to go through surgery. Hopefully they won't keep me in the hospital for so long, but I will have to close my cooking class in June (Last class will be my wagashi class on June 2nd.)
I will resume taking bookings around end June depending on how I'm recovering. I apologize for the inconvenience and hope to see you all soon!
As I've been not well lately, and due to my health condition, I will not be able to take new bookings for the time being. I will update my status in Mid-May when I get the full diagnosis and know if I need to go thru surgery. Please check my website again.
For those of you who have already booked class in May/June, I will contact you individually if I need to cancel the class.
I apologize for your inconveniences and hope to do more class when I have recovered.
Seems like wagashi(Japanese Traditional Sweets) is the new trend. I've been getting a lot of requests for a wagashi class this month, so I set up a couple of classes.
Come and explore the art of wagashi and learn to make them yourself. You will be making 4 pieces of wagashi in this class which you may taste after class with a bowl of matcha green tea or take home with you in a box.
Classes scheduled in April and May:
Hope everyone has had a great holiday. My children are finally back to school and peace has arrived this morning and I am busy tiding up the house.
I've recieved a request for the intensive cooking course to start in February. If anyone is keen on joining this course, please let me know. I can arrange a day that is convenient for all the participants (weekdays at 10:00 unless otherwise requested).
This is a great course if you are new to Japan and would like to learn the basics of Japanese Cooking. The course will start off with a tour to the local supermarket to introduce you to all the basic condiments and ingredients. The first class will teach you how to make dashi, the fish stock which is the basis of most Japanese dishes. We will make couple of dishes using the dashi.
The other classes will guide you through the most basic ingredients, soy sauce, mirin, tofu, miso. In each class you will make one soup, 1 or 2 side dishes, main dish and a rice dish. You may choose what you would like to make for the last class.
For details of this course please visit this page.
OYSHEE Recipes is giving away a free gift to anyone who attends my cooking class and will download their apps. You can choose a free gift (Japanese Souvenir) from the following (while stocks last) :
If you can write a review on OYSHEE’s app download page after you download it, you can also receive an OYSHEE original apron!
I will be adding more recipes using the ingredients I've used in class, so be sure to check it out!
Hope everyone is surviving the tropical weather here in Tokyo. To mark my first anniversary since the start of my cooking class here in Meguro, I've made minor revisions on the courses that are available for my private lessons and are now updated in my website. Major Changes are that there is a change in my class fees. There will be no surcharge for solo participants and a 10% discount for groups larger than 3. Please see each course for further details.
Other additions include:
Please note that there may be others joining in the lesson you have booked (The first group booking can choose the course). If you would like to have the class solely to yourself, that is also possible at a surcharge, so just let me know.
From time to time I will try to plan group lessons and which will be announced in my website. If you are interested in joining a group lesson, just let me know and I will contact you when it happens.
I am now taking bookings for September onwards. Hope to see you in my kitchen!

Due to a number of requests to bring their children along to class, I've decided to welcome children of any age to come to class. They can participate in the class, or simply play with our toys or watch a video. (We have lots of English Children's DVD)
Children participating in the Sushi class can make mini sushi rolls upon request. Children under the age of 6 are free of charge.
I'm Miyuki and I teach Japanese Home cooking at my home in Tokyo.
