This class was a delight. My octogenarian instructor was surprised and thrilled that a student from the United States had heard of dashi, bonito, miso paste, and mirin. Her enthusiasm was infection. The lesson was short but it was a good foundation in Japanese cooking. I learned a lot and I enjoyed eating what I cooked I chose the vegetarian option, with fried tofu, salad and miso soup, since it was different than the food I was eating in restaurants. The WAC center is in a beautiful tradition home in Kyoto.

If interested in really experiencing culture of Japan, this tour is not to be missed. Machiko, our instructor took us through step-by-step how to make chicken teriyaki, as well as other accompanying dishes, was terrific and both my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed making our own lunch in an authentic Japanese kitchen with all the correct ingredients. We not only enjoyed eating it all but also received a recipe booklet to take away so we can make it and other dishes ourselves at home. Yum!

An excellent experience with a wonderful instructor at WAK Japan Women's Association of Kyoto in a 100 year old house. We made a great vegetarian meal of tofu teriyaki that I'm now adding to my at home repertoire and I learned a lot about Japanese cooking and customs.

We arrived early, as we were unsure about the location. Our instructor accommodated us and began the class 30 minutes earlier than planned. She was warm, and helpful, and encouraged us to participate in all the cooking. It was not a formal class in a learning kitchen, but in a personal kitchen with everyday utensils and cooking containers.
