What you can expect
Learn to reproduce street food like crispy yakitori chicken and homemade udon noodles during a cooking course in the heart of Osaka. Your instructor is a skilled chef who teaches you to prepare the lip-smacking specialties that routinely steal the spotlight at the city's annual festivals.
Your culinary immersion begins in Downtown Osaka, where you slip away from the bustling sidewalks and enter a cutting-edge facility with spotless surfaces and cutting-edge kitchen utensils. Once inside, meet your instructor—a seasoned chef who is excited to unlock the secrets of Osakan street food preparation for you.
Begin by combining the flavors of mirin, sake, soy sauce, and sugar to prepare a simmering yakitori sauce. Next, douse skewers of grilled chicken and gently charred onion in the sauce for a yakitori that's all your own. In the next lesson, learn to knead wheat dough into thick noodles, and then concoct a soul-warming soup with umami flavors and fried tofu.
Finally, try your hand at cooking savory Osakan pancakes filled with local vegetables, herbs, and cheese, and topped with your instructor's signature barbecue sauce. When the course is through, dine on your creations and depart the cooking school with a book of specialties to test in your own home kitchen.
