Kitchen Nippon mainly holds classes showing how to prepare dishes commonly enjoyed in Japanese households. Our goal is to help participants understand how to use commonly available ingredients to create delicious meals. Classes are taught by culinary professionals, including Chef Machiko Tateno (https://www.machiko-tateno.com/), and instruction is provided in both English and Japanese. For those needing a little assistance in finding products right for their needs, we also hold brief tours of supermarkets and shopping streets.
In Japan, there is an expression – Onaji kama no meshi wo kū – which means literally to eat from the same pot. Kitchen Nippon aims to bring people together to make good, wholesome food and enjoy the company of others interested in Japanese food culture.
