The concept is “Learn local food from local at local’s house.” This is not only a cooking class but also a cultural experience. The cooking class is designed for guests to experience the lives and culture of locals in the Hida area. This cooking class begins by escaping from the hustle and bustle to a countryside of Hida Furukawa. You will visit vegetable & rice fields, and then enter a local host’s beautiful home where the class will be held. You can learn how to make local food and ask questions about not only food but also regarding the locals’ lifestyle and culture. The lecturer is not a professional chef but experienced home cook who is passionate about food and speaking English. Having lived in Australia, she speaks English well, making it easy for the guests to enjoy communicating with the lecturer. The class size is limited to 6 people in order to make sure to keep a personalized experience.
