Meet Tamami

Tamami believes in the simplicity of Japanese cuisine and delights in teaching homemade Japanese dishes to her students in her cooking class. She prepares fish, meat and vegetables simply but beautifully, using only the freshest of ingredients. Her slow cooked fish marinated in soy and mirin is an example of her signature dish, which is not only easy to prepare but also delicious. Tamami is keen to teach and discuss her love for cooking.

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) After Tamami welcomes you at the entrance, slip into your uwabakis (Japanese slippers) and walk into her brightly lit and colorful cooking and dining area. The shelves behind the cooking area are beautifully stacked with Japanese crockery in all shapes, sizes and colors – making it look like art! The Japanese style dining table overlooks the balcony and eating on it is quite an experience. Your meal may include dishes such as chirashi sushi or sushi rolls, miso soup and okonomiyaki (Japanese savoury pancake) or yakisoba (wheat noodles), takoyaki (octopus balls) and karaage (Japanese fried chicken).

Cooking experience: (2-6 guests) Spend about an hour in Tamami's studio kitchen learning how to make soup and different types of sushi or 1-2 Japanese homemade dishes from scratch. You will have a hands-on cooking opportunity to learn the secrets behind her preparation of these popular Japanese dishes.

Notes: Since Tamami speaks limited English, her friend Eri will help with translation.

Traveler reviews

Tamami was at the entrance of the apartment building to greet me in. She was keen to teach and discuss the many things she loves about cooking. In the cooking class I learnt to make soup and 5 different types of sushi from scratch. Tamami even provided a quirky handwritten guide on how to cook the dishes and even guided me through the process. My favorite dish was the slow cooked fish marinated with soy and sugar. With Tamami cooking you can always expect a delicious meal!!

FAQ

    You can cancel your experience 48 hours or more before your experience date and receive a full refund. To request a cancellation once you have made a booking simply log in and click the "Request Cancellation" link from the bottom of your booking. Your refund will be processed immediately (note it can take up to 10 business days for this refund to post to your credit card statement). Please note that for cancellations within 48 hours of your experience we unfortunately cannot offer a refund; this is because our hosts typically purchase food and begin their preparations up to 48 hours before the experience.

    Most of our hosts are able to accommodate dietary restrictions and allergies, including vegetarian and gluten free options. For vegetarian travelers, we have an icon on each host profile to indicate whether that host can also offer a fully vegetarian menu. There is a section in the booking form to note any allergies or dietary restrictions which will be sent directly to your host.

    Once you request a booking you can message your host directly to ask any specific questions. Your messages will be emailed directly to the host and any responses will be forwarded to your email and can also be seen on the Traveling Spoon website.

    Your card will not be charged until your host accepts your booking. Typically hosts respond to bookings within 72 hours. In the event your host is unavailable on your selected date and your host rejects your booking your credit card will not be charged.

    Your host's detailed contact information, including their phone number, address, and direction notes, will all be provided immediately upon successful confirmation of your experience (after your hosts accepts your booking and your credit card is successfully processed). This information will be emailed to you to the email address you used to sign up, and will also be visible on your Traveling Spoon profile.

    All prices are noted as per person prices unless otherwise specified (typically transportation is charged on a per car basis, but otherwise all prices are per person).

    Some hosts offer alcohol as an optional add-on for travelers who are of legal drinking age. Pricing for alcohol is visible on the host profile page and includes one to two glasses of wine, beer or local alcohol.

    Some hosts offer transportation as an optional add-on for travelers. Typically this is round trip transportation with pick up and drop off at your hotel. Pricing is quoted per car. Specific instructions for transportation will be provided in your confirmation details when your booking is confirmed.

    Many of our hosts accommodate solo travelers. You can see if a host accepts solo travelers by looking at the traveler range found next to the experience descriptions on the host profile (indicated by the numbers in parentheses next to "In-home meal", "Cooking experience" and "Market visit").

    Your safety and security are our top priority. To ensure this, Traveling Spoon personally vets 100% of all hosts, including an in-person host visit, to ensure each host and experience meets our strict quality requirements.

    Hosts typically respond to booking inquiries within 72 hours. If for some reason you have not heard from your host or if you have any questions you can always contact us at reservations@travelingspoon.com.
