"Our cooking lesson with airKitchen and Akiko-San was a fantastic experience. Being invited by a Japanese local to their home and learning how to cook Japanese dishes, including some of Nagoya’s specialities, made it possible for us to take a deep look inside the Japanese food culture and into how Japanese live and think about various topics. Our host Akiko-san taught us how to prepare many delicious dishes: “Tebasaki” (Nagoya’s local speciality, deep fried chicken wings), “Shrimp Tempura”, “Doteni” (Red miso stew) and Red miso soup. We also learned how great Japanese hospitality is.
What made our airKitchen cooking experience especially great was that everything was arranged to go very smoothly. Our host even picked us up from the station and brought us back to there, and had already bought all needed ingredients for our dishes. As the AirKitchen team was also very helpful and easy to contact, nothing could go wrong!
I would love to enjoy such a great cooking session again soon. Thank you very much!"

"I had really a great time. As a guy who wants to experience Japan from the inside, this was a very good opportunity for me. Our host was very kind, and her home was filled with small and beautiful Japanese details. I appreciated that, it gives a great idea of the everyday life in Japan. The best part was of course the food. I loved that for the first time I did not only ate some delicious Japanese food, but I also got to make it in a traditional Japanese kitchen, that was some real Japan seen from a first person perspective. I am very happy that I had the opportunity to experience this, and I would definitely recommend it."

"We really enjoyed the whole traditional experience from the first meet up to the final goodbyes. Our host, Masako-san, was very lovely and generous. We love the udon and tempura making too! We didn't know udon was traditionally made that way. The traditional matcha drinking was an eye opening experience as well. All in all a very enjoyable experience. Will definitely go back again!"
