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 enable 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. Yuka is also a committee member of CookBookFestival.
Bought this as a gift for my girlfriend as she loves sushi. We learned a lot and had a great time. Would have been better if there was a more social interaction but this I suppose is down to the attendees rather than the class. I recommend this class if you'd like to learn sushi making!
A great course, the instructor Yuka was entertaining, helpful and knowledgeable. It's a good way of picking up the basics and you do leave the course thinking you could have a decent crack at making some Sushi on your own.
As I have already had some experience with making sushi, I found this class to be a bit too basic. I was pleased to unlearn some of my bad habits though. It was disappointing to find that the sushi rice was very under cooked when I got home and wanted to eat the sushi I'd made... this is such a fundamental mistake that just should not have happened...
My husband and I took our 11 yr old daughter to a sushi making class because we were looking for something fun to do that we would all enjoy. Enjoy it we did. We all made beautiful sushi and stuffed our faces with the delicious rice. We will definitely book ourselves on to another course soon.
