    Event description

    In just one day, you can master the fundamentals of healthy and easy Japanese Cooking in a fully hands-on and fun workshop while gaining practical skills and knowledge. Save your time and money ($40 off) in this intensive workshop combining the Japanese Cooking Class (Beginner) and Japanese Cooking Class (Intermediate).

    Follow detailed demonstrations by celebrated chef Yoshiko Takeuchi, who has had over twenty years experience and has frequented some of Sydney's top kitchens, authored two cookbooks and worked on shows like The Biggest Loser.

    Did you know most Japanese restaurants use lots of MSG in their cooking! These restaurants also don’t use traditional ingredients meaning the food loses taste and nutrition! But don’t worry.
