it's so nice to see you

Welcome to Gohan.London by Akemi Yokoyama.


I am a Japanese chef and cookery teacher specialised in authentic Japanese cooking. I would LOVE to share my passion for making the delicious and healthy Japanese dishes and for the aesthetic presentation, as well as to share my knowledge and experience of the traditional condiments making, the magic of the fermentation the Japanese food cannot go without; miso, soy sauce, miring, vinegar and cloudy sake..


Here you will see my recipes, schedule for the online and face-to-face classes, events and more.
