Food & Drink Experience
Create authentic and seasonal Japanese food at an inspiring cookery class in Cheltenham. Kotokoto is run by Yuri Lewis who offers Japanese cookery classes to small groups of friends and family in her own kitchen in Cheltenham. She also runs classes on specific dates, which are open to individuals. Yuri is passionate about cooking and eating seasonally and her goal is to share the joy of cooking and to promote authentic and seasonal Japanese food with Kotokoto. She always uses authentic Japanese ingredients and seasonal vegetables, where possible from her garden.
Growing up, Yuri enjoyed helping her mother and grandmother to cook and learn recipes in Japan and is a trained Japanese cook. Her classes include sushi making for beginners, where you’ll learn everything from preparing rice to rolling sushi. While the Seasonally Changing Menu class will teach you how to cook rice, soup, a main dish – meat, dish and vegan options available – and a side dish. You can either eat the meal you have prepared or take it home with you. The experience also includes a welcome drink, Japanese snacks and all the ingredients.
