Japanese Cooking Class for Helpers!

Monday 16/12/2019 @ 10:30 - 13:30

California Roll By Chiyomi Kawasaki

Ultimate Japanese food class for Helpers” (Hands-On practice) will be held! ! ! *

Students learn about 4 to 5 recipes per session (18 recipes in total) through practical training, including hygiene concepts, how to make stock, how to cook rice, boiled dishes, fried dishes, sushi, side dishes, party menus, and desserts.
We named this class “Ultimate” because of the class structure that we thought so that the correct taste of Japanese food can be reproduced by the hands of helpers!
“We want to convey the right message”, and as a company that supports the philosophy of SDG’s 2030 goals, we teach students how to avoid Food Waste when it comes to food preparation and cooking.
This class is made up of the passion of the instructor and Team Spoonful’s enthusiasm!

Initial promotion price! S$500 for 4 sessions (or S$501 where $1 will be donated to our charity partner – Food Bank Singapore upon request.)
(If participating in a single session: $ 150

Chiyomi Kawasaki


Ms Chiyomi believes in delicious and healthy food that people could eat every day and feel warm, satisfied and relieved after their meals. Japanese food is often considered difficult to prepare but her style of teaching makes it simple.

Her lessons are crafted upon the philosophy of having 3 dishes and 1 soup for a complete meal and her technique to bring out the umami flavor is by using high-quality kelp and bonito dashi which enhances her recipes to be more flavourful and every day’s food much healthier as they are lower in saturated fat!

Chiyomi sensei teaches from basic to advanced levels. It is her passion to cook and teach Japanese home cooking, especially to people all over the world.
