KLM Japanese Cooking Class Experience

KLM Atsuko's Kitchen Japanese Cooking Class

KLM Atsuko’s Kitchen Japanese Cooking Class

To celebrate the increasing of some  routes to Japan, KLM invited a few bloggers to attend a Japanese home style cooking class run by Atsuko’s Kitchen.

In addition to learning (and getting to eat) some amazing food, I also learnt that KLM offer a busy schedule of flights to Japan:

  • Fukuoka: three weekly flights, departing from across the UK and connecting via Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. From Summer 2014, frequencies will increase to four weekly flights
  • Tokyo: 11 weekly flights
  • Osaka:7 weekly flights

The other bloggers at the event were EyeFlare, Mums Do Travel, Gohemian Travellers, An unfamiliar Sky, I Want you to Know, Jenography, London UnattachedRachel Phipps

In the class we learnt to make a range of local dishes that included Mizutaki nabe, Suko zuzhi, Buta no kakuni and Hitomoji guru-guru

The best way of explaining how much fun the session was and how good the food was is to do it with some of the pictures I took through the session! To try the food yourself why not fly KLM to Japan and go on on of the classes run by Atsuko!

I grew up in Zimbabwe, but I have been based in London since 1987. My travel life spans more than three decades and that includes more than 95 cruises. In 2005, I launched Tips for Travellers to make it easy and fun for people to discover, plan and enjoy incredible cruise vacations. And the rest, as they say, is history. I have the largest cruise vlogger channel currently on YouTube, with more than 2 million video views per month.
