Classes are currently offered as private classes for groups of family and/or friendsPrivate classes can be held in your own home kitchen OR at our venue in the Woden area


Maximum participant number is 4 persons (less in smaller kitchens) for any given class, in accordance with our COVID-19 risk management plan.

Private classes can be run either as a pre-packaged OR customised class. Classes are approximately 4 hours long, and include personalised hands-on tuition by the instructor, recipes, and materials required for class. All you need to do is attend with your apron! 


PRE-PACKAGED CLASSES are designed around a general theme, e.g. seafood, vegetarian, parties and entertaining. You are required to select from our recipe list the dishes you would like covered in your class once your booking has been confirmed. 



CUSTOMISED CLASSES offer full flexibility in your selection from our recipe list, as well as other dishes of your choice (subject to availability). Classes can be 1 to 4 hours long. A maximum of 5 recipes can be covered in a customised class of 4 hours. Fee for customised classes vary according to the recipes covered and class duration; please enquire for an estimate.

We also offer customised BYO CLASSES; bring your own ingredients, whether from the Asian grocery shop or supermarket, and learn to turn them into traditional Japanese dishes. BYO classes are charged at $40 for the first hour, then $20/hour from the second hour onward (maximum 4 hours). A $20 call-out fee applies if you wish to hold the class in your own kitchen.

Our recipe list is indicative and we can cover many other dishes; please enquire if you do not find recipes on our list that you would like to learn. Our recipe list is updated according to seasonal availability so be sure to check back from time to time.
