Cooking Class: The Art of Japanese Bento

Perfection is key in this hands-on cooking class as Chefs Vivian and Michi teach you how to carefully craft Japanese bento boxes. 

You'll begin by preparing sticky and hearty beef gyoza dumplings full of cabbage, scallions and ginger, and a classic Japanese potato salad with refreshing cucumbers and dill. Then, you'll delicately prepare and plate a seasoned shio salmon with leafy bok choy and asparagus. Satisfy your sweet tooth with a traditional daifuku rice cake with red bean dessert.

Informative, interesting and entertaining. Never thought I'd end up with a plate of sushi at the end of the class. So good!

Thank you so much for the class! It was a fun learning experience :)

It was a fun selection of food items. Sadly, the ingredients were not all listed nor some of the amounts. During the class, there were items that were not mentioned in the directions. I had hoped to hear more from Michi's experience with the food in Japan- he did not have much time to talk. Finally, we seemed to end class about 20 minutes early and a slower pace may have been helpful.

Chef Vivian brought so much freshness in her dishes. She used same day vegetables and made everything from scratch. I had so much fun learning and I hope to do it again shortly.
