Geared toward those with a passion for Japanese cooking and culture, this course instills a newfound appreciation for Japanese cuisine among kitchen beginners and experienced cooks alike.

Japanese cuisine may look simple, but the dishes are known for their precision in preparation and presentation, and many Japanese cooking techniques require a deft hand to do well. Expert instructor Hiroko Shimbo—along with a few special guests—will make this technique-driven cuisine approachable and fun for anyone.

Come learn the kitchen skills and the philosophy behind Japanese cooking in this 25-hour intensive course that serves up the know-how to make an array of delicious, seasonally driven dishes. Get acquainted with Japanese ingredients and flavors and discover how to use traditional water and fire cooking techniques (blanching, steaming, braising) to prepare tasty and extremely healthy meals.

You will leave knowing your kombu dashi from your kaeshi, how to cook with seaweeds and rice, how to prepare your own sushi, sashimi, tempura, udon and more.
