2.5 hours Class size 1 to 6     label £75

The Japanese diet consists of minimally processed, seasonal fresh foods served in a variety of small dishes. It contains very small amounts of added sugars, fats, or animal protein and promotes fish, seafood, rice, noodles, seaweed, soy, fruit, and vegetables.

The traditional Japanese diet is naturally rich in various nutrients, including fibre, calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron, and vitamins A, C, and E.

During this London cooking class, you will learn to make dishes that offer good amounts of seaweed, yuzu juice and green tea. These are great sources of antioxidants, which are beneficial compounds that protect your body against cellular damage and disease. Using oily fish & seaweed in the Japanese diet provides long-chain omega-3 fats, which promote brain, eye, and heart health.

Japanese foods are naturally low in added sugar and fat, and these factors all contribute to a low-calorie count. In addition, Japanese culture encourages eating until only 80% full. This practice deters overeating and may contribute to the calorie deficit needed to lose weight.

Furthermore, research shows that fibre-rich vegetables, soy foods, and soups typical of the traditional Japanese diet may help reduce appetite and boost fullness, thus promoting weight control and longevity.

This evening medicinal cookery class incorporates Japanese foods into exciting and tasty recipes in a simplistic way. You will learn what ingredients can enhance your body, maximise your energy and keep you full and satisfied throughout the day. At KitchenJoy we will offer guidance and tips to help you choose healthier options.

You will learn to cook a wide range of simple, healthy dishes using fresh and easily available ingredients. You will discover the medicinal benefits of selected herbs and spices with an explanation of the importance of certain nutrient groups.

Your teacher

KitchenJoy is a cookery school with a difference; providing cookery courses that combine experiential learning of culinary skills with a medicinal foundation to promote health and wellbeing. Each session has a specific focus from learning to boost your immune system and energy levels, what foods can nourish your body to good mood foods, and cooking for healthy brain function. Using nutritional pillars to inspire the recipes, seasonal ingredients are locally sourced and specifically selected to promote wellbeing.

When Joy's daughter was a toddler, she suddenly became very ill. Despite countless emergency trips to the hospital, the medics could not determine the source of her symptoms. After various inconclusive tests, they finally found clarity through the health of a naturopath, who diagnosed Alex with an allergy to Aspartame, an artificial sweetener. With natural medicine, Alex’s symptoms cleared up immediately.

This prompted Joy to sign up for an alternative medicine course, which included homoeopathy, herbal, Chinese medicine and nutrition. This ignited her creative side and she developed a passion for throwing ingredients together to produce healthy and tasty dishes. Joy was keen to continue her mission and learn more about how food can contribute to good health, and has visited various retreats across the world to gain more knowledge in holistic wellbeing. This has been and continues to be a fascinating journey of learning, which she now wants to share with others at KitchenJoy Cookery School.
