Omicho Market Tour and Cooking Class
【Market Tour + Cooking Class】
Discover Kanazawa food culture through a tour of Omicho Market and a private cooking experience! We’ll explore the famous Kanazawa market stalls to seek out the freshest seasonal ingredients. Once we have chosen our ingredients, we’ll head to the kitchen and you'll learn how to cook authentic Kanazawa cuisine.
Our resident cooking teacher, born and raised in Kanazawa, will guide you through Omicho Market, teach you the history behind the food, and how to cook delicious Kanazawa cuisine!
We’ll start our journey at Omicho Market -- the hub of Kanazawa’s food culture. Here, we’ll explore the stalls and wind our way through the bustling crowds to seek out the best in-season ingredients.
Learn how to spot the freshest ingredients, shop where local chefs and restaurateurs shop, and choose fresh seafood and vegetables that we’ll use during our cooking class.
Naoko is our resident Kanazawa chef, and is the person to ask if you want to learn anything Kanazawa-food related. Born and raised in Kanazawa, she has always had a love for the city’s food culture since she was young. As her mother is also a cooking teacher, Naoko has grown up eating, creating, and cooking Kanazawa cuisine.
She’ll teach you tips and tricks on how to cook, along with the history behind the food and ingredients (-- and will of course let you sneak a taste here and there, too)!Stop At:
