YJC’s 10th Anniversary !

In July 2023, YUCa’s Japanese Cooking celebrated its 10th anniversary!

My first class was on July 9, 2013. I remember how nervous I was to start the first class in a room of the tiny apartment that my husband and I had just bought at the time.
On that day, my two Australian friends joined.
At the memorable first class, we made okonomiyaki, grilled corn, and somen noodles with the “summer festival” theme. Although I managed to finish the class successfully, it was a month later that I was able to hold the next class.

Thanks to the word of mouth from guests who participated in the class helped me to be able to gradually increase the number of classes from once a month to twice a month and then once a week. Now, thankfully, the class is almost full every day.
🙇‍♀️🙇‍♀️🙇‍♀️

During the pandemic (COVID), I started new online classes and filming recipe videos & Vlogs for YouTube. It was a tough time as an entrepreneur but I could survive thanks to my husband and children’s supports. I feel so grateful. ❤️

Over the past 10 years, I have received national and international media coverage of my cooking classes. I was also able to realize my long-time dream of holding cooking classes overseas, in New York. I secretly hope to have more opportunities like this in the future.✈️🌏🎵

As for the future, since this is my 10th year anniversary, I am planning to try new project to further promote Japanese cuisine.
I will let you know as soon as the details are finalized! ✨✨✨

Reviews from online cooking class guests

Categorised in: | Link of this article

Three of my friends and I took a cooking class from YUCa-san over Zoom. It was a lot of fun and the dishes were really delicious! I was surprised by how quickly we could make so many dishes. I have already made several of the dishes again for my family. I learned a lot even though I am experienced in making Japanese home-style recipes. Thank you, YUCa-san!
