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.
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!
Went here with two of my friends earlier. The host is a wonderful cooking teacher who can also explain the origins of the food and the ingredients. She is very warm and friendly and for anyone who even remotely enjoys Japanese cuisine, I would most certainly recommend this.
Even I've been in Japan for 5 years, it's still difficult having chance to experience Japanese home food. Thanks to my friend, I could have opportunity to participate this. Every dishes were so delicious ans also easy to learn how to make. Also, Aki-san was so nice and friendly, so that I could have comfortable and pleasurable time there. Watching Kendo after the cooking course(I could have chance thanks to Aki-san) was also very interesting.
