If you are not a big fan of raw fish but you do love Japanese food then this gyudon and miso soup cooking class in Tokyo will be perfect for you.
Gyudon, a type of donburi, is a popular Japanese fast food dish. It literally translates to “beef bowl” and consists of a bowl of rice topped with beef and onions. Gyudon has a strong connection with sukiyaki which is a popular traditional Japanese food. Like most rice bowls, gyudon is very easy to make and is incredibly delicious.
You will also learn how to make authentic Japanese miso soup. Miso soup is normally made from fish stock; however, there are options for vegetarians and vegans. Once you have mastered miso soup your recipes for Japanese meals will expand incredibly.
While you are learning to make gyudon and miso soup you will also learn about the rich history of these dishes. You will also get to experience a small tea tasting; if you are interested in learning about tea consider some of the other classes we offer. It will be a fun experience for anyone who wants to learn more about Japanese cuisine.
Your instructors are twin sisters (Ayumi and Shihomi) who worked as sushi chefs in Geneva, Switzerland for three years and Itamae (Japanese cuisine chef) in Tokyo for seven years. This is an incredible accomplishment as two female chefs are not so common in Japan. These women are incredibly intelligent and kind and will make sure that your experience is one of a kind.
