I can't wait to try another one of Yoko's classes. She is so sweet, makes the cooking instruction fun AND informative, and the food turned out wonderful! It's great for small groups of people, since classes are held in a more intimate apartment.

Foodstory's cooking classes are not just about learning how to cook Japanese food - they are a cultural immersion AND a place to meet awesome folks who love food as much as you do.
Yoko, the owner and chef, is informative and passionate about sharing her love of food, cooking and Japan. She makes sure we only use the freshest ingredients. So you are bound to be well fed!

Yoko runs fun Japanese cooking classes from a little loft in downtown Los Angeles. We learned how to make miso soup and okonomiyaki in one class. Yoko not only covers the how but she also gives great background and cultural information on the foods we made. I had a great time and would highly recommend it, looking forward to coming back real soon.

Cooking with Yoko is an amazing experience. We learned so much from what different cities in Japan have different ways of cooking their food. The food we made was amazing as we cooked it ourselves and it taste so good. Loved eating and making the okonomoyaki. Would recommend any class that Yoko has.

The whole experience from start to finish is a whole lot of fun. For starters, it is held in a small studio apartment in downtown LA that is dedicated for the food story experience, which gives the entire experience a more intimate feel. Yoko, the head chef, is extremely informative and helps you through any step that you are having trouble with. The food we cooked all came out delicious which was surprising because normally I can barely make canned soup properly! Foodstory has some very specific cooking classes that help give you more of a cultural understanding of Japanese food while being highly interactive in the process of making it. Highly recommended to do in small groups!

Great place to learn how to make some authentic Japanese foods and learn some culture too. Yoko who owns and runs Foodstory is so nice and provides high quality ingredients for her food cooking classes. There are classes for okonomiyaki (Japanese pancakes), tofu, sweets, ramen, sushi, and more! The classes are run out of an apartment in downtown LA.
