Cooking Class: Japanese Cooking for Young Chefs

This fun cooking class for kids is a great way to get little hands involved and skilled in the kitchen. Chef Andy will patiently help these eager chefs create a menu of Japanese favorites that they can be proud of. 

To start, they'll learn all about safe and proper knife skills while slicing cucumbers to make a refreshing salad. They’ll also learn to make an impressive sushi roll, filled with colorful fresh veggies like bell peppers, carrots and scallions. For dessert, Chef Andy will teach the class to expertly fold delicate matcha crepes and fill them with their choice of ingredients. 

This class is ideal for parents and emerging chefs ages 5-15. Children must be accompanied by a paying adult.

Chef Andy and Esme were amazing; Andy exudes a warm, easy personality, immediately making us feel at home in his class. We brought our kids aged 5-13 and he was engaging, interactive and involved our kids in every part of the class - our kids loved Chef Andy. We couldn’t recommend this class with any more confidence, and can’t wait to do another class with Chef Andy.
