    What to Expect
    After you meet Yoko at the subway station, she will walk you to her apartment through some of the local shopping streets, giving you a small tour of her neighborhood. Yoko lives in a simple, clean apartment complex in the city near the Osaka Castle (a big tourist spot). 

    Yoko learned to cook from her mother when she was young and later joined a culinary institute in Osaka. She loves everything to do with food and a few years ago decided to follow her passion and teach Japanese cooking from her home. Your meal with Yoko may include dishes such as rolled sushi or okonomiyaki (savory pancake) or Kara-age(Japanese fried chicken) as a main course and a few of her signature side dishes, such as Japanese omelet, pickled seaweed and cucumber, veggies with tofu and sesame dressing and miso soup. You will end your meal with some refreshing green tea ice cream.

    Yoko prepared well and we had a good email discussion prior on what to cook. During the day, she showed interesting techniques as well as telling about the theory, history and culture associated with the cooking. All in all a great experience!
