Your tutor is Jay who has worked in Izikaya’s (Japanese home cooking restaurant) in Tokyo and around Japan and studied the art of knife making under 3 Red Sun Awarded knifesmiths. Jay’s expertise in the field of Japanese cuisine and knife sharpening has helped to establish Japanese Knife Company as the authority on blades and sharpening in the UK.
He has appeared on TV several times to demonstrate knife skills and Japanese cooking methods as well as conducting demonstrations at food fairs around the country.
Japanese food is the cuisine of moment. With the widespread insistence on healthy options stunningly beautiful and impressive Japanese dishes are proving overwhelmingly popular. Whilst the number of Japanese eateries is rapidly increasing it is still hard to find accessibly priced good quality Japanese food in the UK. Japanese Knife Company is proud to give everyone the opportunity to create the finest elements of Japanese cuisine in the home.
With the increase of Japanese influence on Modern European Cuisine, he regularly gives tutorials on traditional Japanese cooking and cutting methods to European chefs working in restaurants such as the Sanderson, St. Martins, No.1 The Aldywch, Claridges amongst others.
The basic modules are currently available in four parts taking between 4 & 5 hours each.
The basic modules are as follows
All four modules (4 – 5 hours each) can be taken over 2 - 3 days or any combination you prefer. We can conduct the course at your kitchen if based in or around London. This way you use the same utensils and heat source that you would normally use, which will make your understanding and future cooking a lot easier. A further benefit is that you can invite some guests for dinner on the night of your lesson so that the food you have prepared can be shared and enjoyed with your friends. Alternatively, if you prefer, you can come to our kitchen in Cheyne Walk, Chelsea*.
