Cooking Class: Traditional Japanese Bento Box

In this cooking class with Chef Vivian and Michi, you'll learn the art of plating Japanese bento boxes while learning the history of this long culinary tradition. To begin, you'll prepare the bento recipes. This will involve first making a ginger-spiced beef gyoza and Japanese potato salad with cucumbers and dill before preparing a shio salmon paired with bok choy and asparagus and daifuku, a rice cake with red bean. After your bento dishes have been made, Chef Vivian and Michi will then guide you through the process of artfully plating each dish into a bento box.

Chefs were very nice but the venue was not. Restaurant setting with long table. Soccer World Cup playing on several TVs. I could barely hear the instructions. Menu was extremely basic even for a beginners class. Fortunately class was half price. Had I paid full price I would have been very disappointed

This was such an excellent experience! They taught us all the steps we needed to make sushi in a fun manner. They made sure to make all the participants feel welcome and engaged. Both the chefs had such a great personality and added a personal flare to the class. Thank you!
