Your host Noriko
Noriko was inspired to share her culture and cuisine after an incredible experience she had cooking and eating with a local family living in rural New Zealand, where they use a boat regularly to get around. On her return to Japan, she began offering cooking lessons in Tokyo with the sole objective of sharing authentic Japanese food and culture with the world. She specializes not only in traditional cuisine like washoku gozen, seasonal and authentic Japanese dishes but also in showcasing modern trends that Japanese housewives’ use in their everyday cooking. Her specialty is ‘kyara-ben’, a character bento box in which she arranges food in elaborate styles to look like popular characters, people and animals. Her recipes are all about balance in flavor, nutrients and colors so your Japanese bento/gozen will be a treat for your eyes and taste buds. Noriko is happy to share stories about food and culture in Japan.

"We had the best time and actually learned a lot. It was our first online cooking experience as a family (we have two boys 12 and 14) and they had a lot of fun."

"Noriko is a lovely host who made the class very clear and easy to understand. The experience was definitely one of a kind, something both my sister and I really enjoyed and will be recommending to our friends!"

"I wanted to take a minute and let you know how much we enjoyed our cooking class with Noriko last night. First, her camera setup and all the instructions were so professional. I had no trouble prepping for the class (even with the stay-at-home orders here in Texas) and getting the ingredients and tools in place before we started. And once we got underway, Noriko was so personable and patient...and she didn't even mind when our egg crepe turned out in a big heap! (But we learned from our mistake and will try that step again this weekend on our own!) :) Noriko (and her son acting as cameraman, who was adorable by the way) was a delight. I can't wait to do more of these classes with our boys. Thank you for putting these online classes together for all of us travelers who are anxiously awaiting that day when we can return to our adventure and education on the road!"
