Japanese cooking class

We are very lucky where we are living, we have really nice neighbours in our simpang! Opposite us lives a NZ-Japanese couple, and Misuzu have several times invited us around for home made sushi and other Japanese goodies. A while ago we jokingly suggested she should do a cooking class, and we could all take part and learn how to cook Japanese food.
Today we did!

We had a lovely morning together, a few amahs, Nicole, one of her friends, her daughter Katie, Misuzu and myself. Misuzu had prepared everything for us, she had printed out the recipes with all the important 'key points' and hints and even prepared a little "starter kit" for us to take home after class. It was fab!

We learned how to make gyozas, cocoons, edamame, karashi (lotus root) and sushi, of course. There was so much food when we were done so Nathan and the kids came and helped out at lunch time! (Misuzu had bought 'training chop sticks' for the kids in Japan, so cute!)
Next week we'll do Swedish Meatball class at my house! Ha ha!

Boel, would Misuzu be interested in doing more of these classes? She can charge a fee. Can you please ask her for me? Thanks.

Talking of food. My family and I are moving to Brunei in Jan. I am the teacher my husband is a chef. He wants to learn more about Asian cooking while in Brunei. Do you know of any cooking schools in Brunei? How easy is it for partners to get work visas?

Elaine - I must admit I know nothing about cooking schools here. This "class" was purely by a friend, for friends.
Try and google on it, and/or keep an eye on bobwhatson.com where most information about what's going on gets posted.
Where will you be teaching? Local or international school?
Good luck with the move!
