Highly recommend this lesson ❤️My daughter (9) participated with me. It was good to learn how to make Karaage so easily and dipping sauce was addictive ⭐️ Also we learned miso soup with tomatoes & onions which was new combination to us. The soup tasted great with acidity of tomatoes, made well balanced- dinner. The Karaage disappeared super quickly!
I attended the Shojin cooking class and the simplicity of the ingredients with the richness of tastes are surprising. The class was packed with content and activity. I did not understand how the two hours passed. And our teacher was amazing handling the hickups l experienced due to an err in ingredients and helping us to end up in delicious and pro looking results.
I followed this wonderfully workshop from the Netherlands.
I really enjoyed this workshop. Kinu-san is great teacher and very kind!
I really can recommend everyone how want to learn to Cook Japanese food to sign in for a online workshop at the Sozai cooking school.

What a fab experience to cook such traditional Japanese dishes in such a fun way. The okonimiyaki was soooo easy to make and to die for. I recommend cooking these with friends.
