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.
I loved the class, you were very welcoming and the little tips and tricks you would never get from a book. I look forward to doing more classes with your company
I had fun. Yuka is a great teacher.
Loved the class and can’t wait to practice at home. Yuka is a brilliant teacher and very entertaining. The only slightly negative thing with the class was the venue. Could be on a more cosy place. Highly recommended class though.
Many thanks to Yuka for a wonderful evening learning to make Sushi. Can’t wait to try my new skills out on the family.
