Learn Home-style Japanese Cooking in English: Reservation


Welcome to Kitchen Minori !

★★Cooking classes are currently not available for reservations until the end of August 2024.

I was born and raised in Kyoto and my family has been running a food shop for about  80 years on a shopping street near my kitchen.

My house is a 90-year-old Japanese traditional Machiya town house.

I try to make the cooking class small because I would like people who visit me feel at ease and spend a happy time together.

Maximum number of participants is 4 to 6 people. Please make yourself at home in my house and let’s cook home-style Japanese dishes together!

Besides foods, I will introduce you some authentic seasonings as well.

Obanzai is the word for home cooking in Kyoto dialect and the recipes are passed down for generations.

I will let you know some simple but tasty and healthy obanzai, too.
