Cooking

Let’s try Japanese and World Cooking!
International Cooking classes are planned and conducted by Japanese and foreign volunteers.
They choose what to make, arrange the lecturers, print recipes, get ready the ingredients, and conduct classes.
Each time there are about 30 participants including volunteers and a lecturer.
We provide English recipes and arrange a different menu for vegetarians.
In class, Japanese and foreign participants prepare and cook the dishes together and eat what they made in class.
Members can not only taste authentic cooking but also experience the culture of that country and moreover the friendship and cultural exchange among participants in the class.
Recipes in English and in Japanese are available.
