Enjoy private culinary workshops to learn the essentials of Japanese cuisine

Washoku Home Cooking

Wa, or harmony, is an essential concept in Japanese culture. Washoku is the embodiment of harmony within food. A washoku meal is carefully constructed for the senses, celebrating seasons, the land and fresh ingredients. Each dish tells a story, and the presentation is just as important as the flavor. Machiko is a trained and certified washoku chef who invites you into her kitchen so she can share the dishes and stories that have been passed through generations.

The experience teaches you more the "why" than the "how" behind the dishes. You’ll discover more about Japanese food, experience the traditions of a local kitchen and learn about the thousands of years of history behind one of the world’s most celebrated cuisines.
