Respond to Review of HARU Cooking Class - Kyoto
Review: This was one of the highlights to my last trip to Japan in November 2011. Taro was very friendly, helpful and his lesson was one of the most useful things I did in Japan. As a strict vegetarian that doesn't eat egg, I chose the vegan class and shared the class with a vegetarian couple. When abroad, I always eat in vegan restaurants, knowing that everything is 'safe' to eat, so I order lunch and dinner setsand sometimes have no idea what I'm eating! In this class we made things that I had eaten in Japan and not recognised. I came away confident and a lot more curious about the things I was eating. Being in a Japanese home was also a joy, and to meet Taro's family and share time with them. It was very easy to find and I now have a cooking teacher for life in Taro! One recommendation - eat before you go, as everything is so yummy whilst preparing and you'll be starving by the time you eat! Next time I want to do the tour of Nishiki Market and learn how to shop vegan in Japanese markets.
