Jamie Oliver’s Cooking School: Japanese Food

Massive thanks to Lauren, otherwise I wouldn’t have known this amazing place exists!

So last weekend I attended the fabulous Jamie Oliver Cooking School, at their Westfield Shepard bush venue. As a fan of the way Jamie Oliver cooks and from watching his programmes I was really intrigued to find out more about this experience.

Beforehand, the only thing I knew was that we were cooking Japanese food, although there are many other different exciting types of food to cook, from Italian to Mexican food!

On arrival we were greeted by the lovely staff members who offered us prosecco and a chance to relax. We were then instructed to wash our hands and put aprons on. I was really impressed by how everything was thought out. Our Chef for the day was a hilarious guy who really knew his stuff and made use feel right at home. We watched a few demos of how to make the dishes, were able to ask questions, receive guidance; and we were able to try a few of the ingredients, many of which I have never heard off, before using them in our cooking.

All the food and cooking prep was done before we arrived, all laid out and well organised, which made everything a whole lot easier.

So what did we make? Well I think Jamie Oliver will be super impressed by our fab cooking skills! We managed to rustle up pork stuffed gyoza with a tasty toasted sesame seed sauce, miso soup, ponzu dipping sauce and a lovely, healthy chicken teriyaki stir fry with sticky, fragrant rice and vegetables.

The experience was wonderful, the food, staff and venue were excellent and would definitely recommend. I couldn’t fault it. The experience would make a perfect gift for someone who wants to try something different and for couples or a group of friends!
