Meet Teresa

Teresa’s lifelong love of cooking began in childhood. Her mother was a passionate home cook who would take Teresa with her from restaurant to restaurant. Along the way, the mother-daughter duo would collect the best recipes from the top chefs. Teresa is excited to share her love of food with her Traveling Spoon guests.

What to expect

Please note menu might vary. If there are particular dishes you are interested in trying, please include your request in the booking form.

In-home meal: (2-6 guests) Teresa is a young, ambitious woman who works in the corporate world by day, and by night, cooks incredible dishes using the classic recipes she helped her mother collect. Located in a modern, high-rise building in the hip, trendy Shibuya ward, an afternoon with Teresa offers a rare peek into the life of a young Tokyo woman. Your dinner may include dishes such as takoyaki, a tasty Japanese snack, karaage, an incredibly delectable fried chicken made with ginger, garlic, and soy sauce, and Japanese rice and seafood rolls.

Cooking experience: (2-6 guests) Teresa will teach you how to make traditional home cooked Japanese dishes such as takoyaki (octopus balls) or gyoza (Japanese dumplings). Please indicate your selection when making your reservation.

Notes: Many Japanese households request that you leave your shoes at the door.
Teresa is only available to host on weekends.

Traveler reviews

Teresa was a great host and a wonderful cook. She is one of the youngest hosts we have done Traveling Spoon with, which was fun, because it felt like we were going to a house party with a friend in Tokyo. She also invited a few of her friends over, all of whom speak impeccable English, so we were able to learn about Japanese culture, cook a variety of delicious local foods, and got some excellent recommendations on what else to do in Tokyo. - Dorna
