Aya was great, informative and our family had a ball making Ramen from scratch. In fact, it was one of the tastier meals we have had, and we are eating amazingly well on this trip. We brought extra beer and thought the pairing with the food was great, not to mention it made the entire experience feel like a cooking party. Highly suggest this.

This class was so fun and yum! I’m normally a terrible cook and the easy step-by-step instructions made me feel like I was a natural and I am confident I could cook the dishes on my own. The class is family friendly too - I attended the class with my toddler and he got to play with some toys and get involved when he felt like it. He especially loved making noodles from scratch. Aya was so friendly and accomodating with my son, she made the lesson easy to follow and created a fun atmosphere. I felt like I was in a room with friends and my son and I went home with two full happy bellies. I now have practical take-home knowledge about Japanese food and feel like I learned new skills. The dishes were delicious and when I get back to Australia I will have some wonderful recipies I can confidently make for my family. I was totally hooked on this class and I’d highly recommend it. Mostly because it really is something I will be able to do in my own home. Suitable for anyone from total foodie to reluctant cook. It’s inspiring.

I joined a cooking class with my hasband and friends. I had so much fun cooking ramen from scratch. For Japanese people, we don't know the recipe so it was definately worth doing it.
The chef, Aya, was very friendly and explained everyting very well so that even people who don't usually cook can understand. She gave us the recipes in the end so that we can cook them at home, which is super nice. I will bring my hasband's family to the cooking class for sure next time they are in town. Also, the knife i used for the cooking class was amazing. As soon as you started using it, you can tell how different it is from others. Japanese knives are one of the best gifts.
オーストラリアから友達が遊びに来ていたこともあり、アメリカ人の主人と主人の友達と4人で参加しました。献立が日本人でも一から作ったことがないラーメンなので、ワクワク!そして、内容は期待以上の物でした。 シェフのAyaさんが調理工程を丁寧に教えてくれるので、料理を普段しない人でも安心して作ることが出来ます。そして、自分で調理したラーメンを食べた時の感動ったらありません。外国からくるお友達等を是非連れて行ってあげてください。120%満足してくれること間違いなし。仲間と最高の思い出を作ることが出来ました。本当に参加してして良かったです。また、場所も人気の祇園・八坂エリアにあるので散策のついてに参加できるのもいいですよ

I went with a friend and his wife to attend an Eat Kyoto cooking session, and it was a night to remember! The opportunity to make ramen from scratch (including noodles), along with traditional Japanese cucumber salad and Japanese fried chicken was impossible to pass up, and I am so glad I joined! Aya was very helpful and spoke English fluently, and she helped a novice cook like myself make a delicious and visually-appealing meal!

Please, by all means, try this experience if you can!
