Tokyo, JapanView Experience
Lovely cooking class! Family bonding event with my dad (55), sister (19) and I (22). We did the flower sushi-making class. Directions to the place were clear and accurate, we found our way with ease using the subway. Learned a lot about culinary history, had fun cooking and even more fun eating what we made + the provided desserts! Yum!! Would recommend this experience to foodie families :)
I had a wonderful experience with Arigato Tokyo. Not only we cooked gyoza together but also bunch of small dishes - some of which I wanted to learn how to cook for a long time. I am so happy to have discovered how to make cucumber pickles and Japanese egg roll. Can't wait to surprise my family with these easy but brilliant recipes. The host was very friendly and she entertained us with little recipe related trivia games while we were cooking. The location was great as well, very convenient and easy to find. I also happened to make wonderful new friends. Thank you Arigato Tokyo and thank you BonAppetour.
We had a great time with Arigato. Although it was the gyoza cooking class, we also learned how to make pickles, an egg dish, a pumpkin dish, and miso. It was fun, and not too stressful even with limited cooking skills. We met a few nice people, and had a wonderful time.
I had an amazing experience with my host Naoko-sensei. She was patient, sincere, and knew so much about the Japanese culture and cuisine, that I learnt so much about Tokyo in this 3 hour session than I had expected. It was my first time learning to make sushi, and Naoko-sensei made the whole experience so much fun - she saved our Maki sushi from breaking apart with her skilled fingers, while encouraging us and making us feel so accomplished at the same time. By the end of the lesson, Naoki Sensei had us feeling like we too could become sushi chefs! She told us interesting secrets about the ingredients used in the Japanese cuisine, and how they affect the final taste. At the end of the session, we sat down to enjoy the fruits of our labor - the sushi. Over lunch, Naoko-sensei told us about her childhood, her family, and we exchanged travel stories - the conversations over delicious Japanese food made us feel like we had made a friend in a new city. Many thanks to Anne from Arigato for giving us this experience - a little a piece of Tokyo which we were allowed to bring home to our family and friends!
