You get an opportunity to prepare sushi in a local's home kitchen. It's a rare glimpse into everyday life that a regular cooking class doesn't offer.
A great way to get to know a typical household and connect with the chef/teacher. This experience was more about getting to know the chef/teacher and eating an amazing home cooked meal. A recipe book and a few small gifts were given at the end to make sure I knew how to cook everything again!
The best part of the trip was the experience of Private Sushi and Tempura making in a local home. The hosts who welcomed us in their home were amazing, so sweet and gave us the best part of Japan...the people...It was a spectacular and amazing event and memory for a lifetime. It truly was worth every penny to spend time in a local home with a local of Kyoto...it is the only true way to get to know a place is in a person's home. I cannot say enough of what a blessed experience this was. Thank you Viator for making it possible. I have been on several tours of yours in several countries and you do not disappoint.
This cooking class was very well organised and highly enjoyable. Both the tour guide and the host were lovely and it was great to experience cooking in a typical Kyoto kitchen/home. We were encouraged throughout the session to participate in the preparation of every dish made. The host made us feel very welcome in her home and was more than happy for us to take pictures throughout the class and answer our questions.
Wow! This was a very personalized experience. Our interpreter/guide met us at the hotel with a car. On the drive to the home, our guide was engaging and interesting. She spoke perfect English as she had lived in Australia for eight years. Of course the best part was the lesson! Our hostess was gracious and informative. She and her nephew did a great job with all the parts of the dishes we prepared. Our 18 year old son loved everything. The food was spectacular and we enjoyed the conversation and learning customs as well as cooking. I would strongly recommend this experience!
Great afternoon, thanks very much!
