Izakayas dot the streets of Tokyo, welcoming visitors with the promise of sake and delicious snacks. In this class, Jay Guerrero will teach you how to recreate some of these dishes in your own home. You learn about the history of the izakaya as you make fried chicken karaage with togarashii, honey, and lemon; sweet potato dengaku (miso-glazed sweet potato with crispy skin); and kinpira renkon (braised lotus root with sesame and mizuna).
This is a live, hands-on cooking class held in your kitchen via Zoom. Class is meant to be as interactive as it would be at our table, with the instructor teaching you how to prepare each recipe. Each class ticket is for one kitchen, and we welcome group cooking on the same screen. To learn more about how class will go visit our FAQ page.
There are two options for gathering ingredients for this class! You can shop for your own ingredients or we are happy to pre-measure ingredients and assemble them into a 4-serving kit. And if you like to sip wine while you cook, consider adding a lovingly paired bottle with your kit!
You can preview the ingredients and equipment needed by FOLLOWING THIS LINK. One week before class we will send out a detailed shopping list, and a few days before class we will email you a detailed recipe packet and Zoom link. All classes are listed in Pacific Time.
