ONLINE JAPANESE COOKING BASICS 1 - TERIYAKI
Really enjoyable

I attended the Online Basics 1 - Teriyaki course and found it to be easy to follow along with as it was a small group and the food was delicious. The instructor was very attentive to anyone who had a question and was able to learn about the ingredients used, not just the recipe.
Would definitely recommend if you're looking to expand your cooking repertoire!

ONLINE SHOJIN VEGAN COOKING 1
Japanese answer to vegan cuisine!

This is probably the most challenging class I've had so far. It's a busy class where you learn to make the following dishes.

- Gammodoki with Ponzu & Ginger (Tofu Patties with Ponzu & Ginger)
- Ankake Gammodoki (Tofu Patties in Dashi Glaze)
- Nasu Dengaku (Miso Aubergine)
- Kenchinjiru (Seasonal Vegetables Temple Soup)

A lot of cutting is involved in the class but Kinu was very patient with us. I was amazed with what can be achieved with just tofu and simple vegetables. I am a part time vegetarian so this has definitely given me ideas on what to make instead of sticking to meat alternatives.

ONLINE JAPANESE COOKING BASICS 1 - KARAAGE
Basic Japanese home cooking class

This is a busy but fulfilling cooking class where you learn the following dishes.

Chicken Kara-Age
Tamagoyaki
Niku jyaga
Basic katosuobushi and Kombu Dashi
Tofu and Wakame miso soup

I enjoyed the dishes a lot and it definitely gave me lots of ideas of putting my own Japanese dinner together. The Niku jyaga is a nice meal especially for winter months-I think it's Japanese's answer to the English stew. And who would say no to "tamago"- the perfect compliment to any meals.

Online Okonomiyaki & Yakisoba Varieties MasterClass
Okonomiyaki-the prefect Japanese street food

This is a class where you learn how to make the famous street food okonomiyaki. Kinu gave very clear explanation of the steps and it turned out easier than I thought! In the class, we learned different varieties of okonomiyaki which was interesting. It also brought back many happy memories of my travels in Japan and I would definitely recommend this class.
