It’s hard to get more traditional than the Japanese bento box. In a way, it’s the perfect meal: it might include an egg roll, rice, pickled vegetables, breaded chicken and even nourishing miso soup, each in its own section of the bento box. The word is derived from an old Japanese word for convenience, and convenient this boxed meal certainly is. In this 3-hour cooking class in the center of Kyoto, learn the art of cooking up a bento box meal. Master chefs demonstrate and then turn the kitchen over to you. In the end, eat what you cook.

Coco was literally the sweetest...

Coco was literally the sweetest and did so well teaching us how to cook the Japanese way. She really gave us so much insight on how each dish is created and how it fits into their culture. And major plus all the food ended up super delicious.

I absolutely LOVED this class. The instructors were so friendly and helped through the entire process. It was a small group and we all had turns learning and asking questions. I was so proud to have created the entire bento box by myself - and it
