About Kazuko’s Japanese Table

I was born and raised in Hikone, a city in western Japan. My mother is a talented cook, and she taught me many home cooking techniques. In 2010, my British husband and I moved to Wotton Under Edge, where we lived until 2021, when we moved to Nailsworth.

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful Japanese cookery session with Kazuko, gifted to us as a Christmas present. The whole evening was engaging, educational, fun and most of all the food was absolutely delicious. Kazuko is a great hostess and teacher, deeply knowledgable about Japanese food, nutrition and health. She is informative, funny and gentle in how she teaches and shares her knowledge, and I can't recommend her or her cookery teaching highly enough!

Kazuko is such a warm lovely presence and it was a joy to invite her into our home and to have her share the magic of creating sushi! She is a beautiful teacher and worked so well with the children. It really was a wonderful experience and I now feel confident I can cook sushi for my family, and have the children help me alongside too! Thank you Kazuko for a wonderful few hours. Kate

Incredible evening with Kazuko who has so much knowledge to give. We spent nearly 3 hours cooking, eating and talking all about Japanese food. The course is very light hearted and fun and done completely at your own pace. Could not recommend highly enough - book her now!

Kazuko provided a three course meal and sushi lesson which was both entertaining and delicious. It provided a great insight into Japanese cuisine in an accessible and mouth-watering manner! Would highly recommend this dinner experience.

Kazuko is the loveliest lady, so easy to talk to and learn from. Her knowledge is extensive and we really appreciated her given us information on the source of the ingredients too as we’d love to make the dish again. The food was delicious, and beautifully presented in her authentic Japanese China bowls. Worth every penny, we look forward to meeting with her again and learning something else :).

A unique experience for my mums Christmas present which didn't disappoint. Through advice and help in making the sushi and it tasted delicious. Everything from start to finish was 10/10! Will be trying the recipes again.

Kazuko’s cooking lesson was truly insightful. Her explanations of the health benefits of Japanese cuisine, both physically and mentally, clearly showed her passion and understanding. As a young person, I am especially grateful that Kazuko could share her knowledge with me. I’m sure I’ll carry it with me for a lifetime and use it to make lasting healthy decisions. Not to mention, the food was incredible! The homemade miso paste was like nothing I had ever tasted and each of the other ingredients was carefully selected and valued. I would recommend this mind-opening experience to anyone, especially younger people. Thank you Kaz!

Kazuko was very knowledgeable and we very much enjoyed her instructions and information about the food. Our meal of miso noodles and Gyoza, with Yuzu cheesecake was delicious !! It was a really fun evening and we feel inspired to try now for ourselves!

Kaz came over and my wife and I did a maki sushi lesson. So much knowledge was shared of how to make amazing sushi rolls. The starter, sushi we made, and dessert were all out of this world! All the ingredients and condiments were top quality, and we will definitely be doing another course in the future. Made for a fantastic date night, in the comfort of our own home. Thank you Kaz for showing us what really good sushi is.
