Market Tour and Authentic Nagoya Cuisine Cooking Class With a Local in Her Home

Please note that the market tour here means a local supermarket tour. After you meet your host Akiko at the station, she will accompany you to a local supermarket located near the JR station where she will show and describe the different ingredients used in Japanese cooking and seasoning. If you like, Akiko can help you purchase local ingredients that you can take back home from Japan.

After the tour, you will join Akiko in her kitchen to make classic Nagoya dishes such as red miso stew and shrimp tempura in a rice ball or fried chicken, Nagoya style. You will also learn how to make dashi stock from scratch for the miso stew. Your cooking class will last about an hour before you sit down to share the Nagoyan style Japanese meal you helped prepare.

Akiko is thrilled about the opportunity to share specialties from Nagoya as a lot of people don’t know how to cook Nagoya-style food. Because of this, many Nagoyans themselves eat their local specialities at restaurants!

Akiko’s love and excitement for cooking began as a child growing up in a suburb of Nagoya. By the time she was in high school she could prepare her own bento box! She still has fond memories of takoyaki, the crispy Octopus dumplings, a quintessential Japanese snack that was cooked in her home almost everyday! She has been cooking for almost 40 years now and it is the one thing that truly keeps her happy. Besides cooking, Akiko enjoys salsa and Latin music. Join Akiko for this wonderful opportunity to learn from a passionate local and truly experience Nagoyan culture and cuisine!

If you have specific food preferences such as Halal or Vegan, please let Akiko know when making your reservation!
