Lessons Takoyaki & Karaage Class September 06, 2020 / by Junko Our first lesson since March! A cute couple came in for a takoyaki and karaage lesson today. It was a surprise birthday present for the boyfriend, so he had no idea that he would be cooking today until he reached JJ Kitchen! They did a great job of turning and flipping the takoyaki into nice, smooth balls and they really enjoyed the karaage which are crispy on the outside, tender and juicy in the inside! They both live in Japan so they spoke Japanese as well, and we had a fun time chatting in English and Japanese. After the lesson, they headed out for surprise number 2. Hope they have a memorable day! Thank you 2 for coming! Junko There are so many Japanese dishes and cultures that are not well known outside of Japan and I’m happy to introduce them to you! If you tested any of our recipes feel free to send us a photo and your comments and we will be happy to publish them, even if it wasn't a complete success! :) Seeking the best balance of being free and living a stable life in this busy city, I enjoy kitchen gardening to deepen my connection with nature.
