    Lecture is very nice & patient to teach us lesson. environment is great & material to prepare food is fresh. however it will be better if Lecture can teach us some others dishes or some special skill. (example, how to made bento cute or carton looks). as a conclusion, i would prefer friends to participate on this bento class as it is a great experience to learn about japan culture and spend a great time.

What To Expect

Ever wondered how Japanese chefs manage to pack so many interesting flavors into the tiny treats in a bento box? Come along to a traditional cooking class to learn the tricks of the trade from expert local chefs. The sessions provide a fun and interactive environment for learning about the preparation of sushi, sesame salads and many other specialities. Your teachers will also offer you an insight into the historical background of 'Bento', and you'll be able to dress in sumae (the traditional dress of a working buddhist monk) to complete your cultural experience. After you've spent the morning perfecting your cooking skills, you'll feast upon your mini creations as you get to know the fellow chefs on your course. It's a fun filled morning of cultural discovery - foodies, don't miss out!

    We are a family of four with two boys (10yrs and 13yrs) who enjoy cooking and have been lucky enough to experience cooking in Vietnam - an amazing benchmark! And cooking sun did not disappoint. The chefs were great at explaining and demonstrating the dishes. They were really supportive of our boys in the class. The bento box we made was delicious: spinach salad, sushi, teriyaki chicken, tempura. Both boys were easily able to prepare and cook, with the youngest just needing some help with the knife work and hot oil for deep frying. Overall a great experience and fun for the family. I thoroughly recommend.

    Really fun & enjoyable morning spent making a bento! This was one of the best ways for us to understand and be immersed in the Japanese culture. Instructors were fully fluent in English and were very keen to answer any questions we had. Thank you Cooking Sun for the great experience!
