The following is a guest post by Jess, an ALT living in Kanazawa. She also runs the Chuhi Chic blog listed on the side bar under our “Friends” category. Thanks, Jess!
Ever tasted the delights of foreign food and wondered how it was made? Well now’s the time to learn! Kanazawa is home to a diverse foreign community and there is an opportunity to to meet other foreigners and cook in an informal environment. Yoko’s cookery classes run on a Sunday every month. See below for the next 3 lessons:

Sunday April 18th- Iranian cooking class – ￥500 foreigners/￥1000 Japanese

Call or email Yoko (English okay) for further details or to register: 090-8265-0283; kawamori (d0t) 3 (at) ezweb (dot) ne (dot) jp
Editor’s Note: Cooking classes are located just a few blocks behind Kourinbo 109, in Kanazawa. The classes are pretty casual, and it’s a fun environment and a great chance to get to know some other foreigners in the area! No cooking experience necessary, and since each lesson is taught by a different person, the experience is really different for each event.
If you’re interested in cooking, I’m sure Yoko would be excited for you to teach something from your own country as well!
