Yuka’s passion for Japanese cuisine began at a very young age, taught by her grandmother and mother in rural Kyushu. Her childhood was filled with daily trips to fish, meat and vegetable markets where her grandmother taught her how to source the freshest of ingredients. Yuka trained in the art of traditional Kaiseki cuisine at Tokyo’s highly regarded Kaiseki cooking school, Kinsa-Ryu.
Yuka’s extensive knowledge and expertise in Japanese home cooking and formal training enables her to teach with an approachable and friendly technique. Her concept focuses on using four main seasonal ingredients to create simple and delicious menus which are beautifully presented. Yuka is a big advocate for using local ingredients which are easily accessible and reasonable. With her creative flair and natural enthusiasm, Yuka’s classes are fun, practical and hands-on, whatever your ability.
The teacher was really good and easy to understand! I made sushi roll before so many time before and always end up not good shape or texture..
However, her lesson changed my sushi roll skill a lot and much better now. Thank you very much, Yuka!
We had a lovely evening, great instructor. Maybe would be convenient to have an instruction how to find the location beforehand
Huge thanks for Yuka Caves to invite me to be part of her master sushi class ! I, and the rest of the people had a wonderful time , great atmosphere simple techniques easy to learn ! Well done
What a wonderful evening of Sushi Master Class with Yuka!!
All of us was a novice and all of us ended up an evening with amazing sushi creations of our own! Yuka made the class very relaxed, fun and motivating. She made something quite complex very simple and the most important of all, something we could take home and do it again!
