Mochi Dessert Classes

 
 

Casual Teishoku Classes (Temporarily not available)

Our menus are created in “Teishoku” style. Teishoku is a common set-menu in Japan which serves a bowl of rice, soup, one main dish and two side dishes with a pickled vegetable on an “Obon” tray.  This lies in the Japanese cuisine philosophy of “Ichiju-Sansai (one soup, three dishes)” recommending well-balanced, varied and seasonal eating. At each class you will learn how to accomplish “Teishoku” of the day from scratch.  For dishing up there is a wide range of beautiful Japanese ceramics that you can choose from, including handcrafted pieces and items from Chika's family’s collection.

All of our classes/courses are suited for beginner and intermediate cooks. We would, however, recommend you complete Dashi stock 101 before joining any of the casual classes if you are new to Japanese cooking.
