1st – 12th Grade Tokyo Kids Cooking Classes

In our Tokyo kids cooking classes we teach your kids kitchen safety, about interesting and yummy ingredients and cooking techniques. Don’t be surprised to see them eating things that you’ve never fed them, or trying things they have previously disliked! All classes are held at the Best Living Japan Studio in Minami Azabu, Minato-ku, Tokyo – a professional and insured kitchen. All 2019 Winter/Spring classes are here.
Our Tokyo kids cooking classes are for ages 6-18 years (1st – 12th grade).  Twelve weeks of lessons are offered, and you can sign-up your child for three, six or all 12 lessons. One set of three lessons is 10,000 yen + 8% tax.  1st – 3rd graders are from 16:00-17:30, and 4th – 12th graders are 18:00-19:30.

We focus on recipes that are simple and sensible. Positive reinforcement comes when they eat something they cook AND it tastes good. We will stress kitchen safety, discuss eating habits with an assumption that we cook to eat healthy, and build on their previous kitchen experiences. Participation to encourage counting, following directions and estimating, as well as telling time, applying  math skill and some recipe following will also be stressed.  Cooking skills that we will focus on are measuring (weight and volume), cutting, grinding, grating, peeling and separating eggs. Some kitchen tools we will may include electric mixers, kitchen scales, induction cook tops, graters and zesters, and spiralizers.
