Class Description


What you'll learn in this japanese cooking class:

Learn to make festive Temaki Zushi (fresh and delicious hand rolls filled with sushi rice and vegetables and paired with a flavorful sesame dipping sauce) and Miso Soup (a traditional Japanese soup with silken tofu, mushrooms, and scallions made with miso and homemade dashi). 

All Online cooking classes include interactive cooking instruction, a virtual dinner party, a packet with the instructor's family recipes, and a video recording of the class. Since the price is per device, feel free to invite your partner, kids, or roommates to join!


Since Aiko can’t physically welcome you into her home, she wants to do so virtually!

Our online classes are designed to be special, meaningful opportunities to share cooking, culture, and connection--just like our real life experiences. We want you to cook along, and we promise there will be plenty of time for questions, conversation, and stories. It will all end with a virtual dinner party where you'll get to share in the fruits of your labor, apart, but together!

In this 2.5 hour interactive online experience Aiko will guide you through making two of her family recipes for a spectacular and satisfying meal. First, you'll learn the art of making the perfect sushi rice, which is soft, fluffy, and full of flavor. Once the rice is done, you'll bring it together with a variety of fresh vegetables into an array of delicious hand rolls. To bring your Temaki Zushi (vegetable hand rolls) to the next level, Aiko will teach you her grandson's favorite recipe: homemade sesame dipping sauce. To round out the meal, you'll learn how to make miso soup from scratch, including the traditional process of making homemade dashi to give the soup its signature flavor.
