Taste of Okura Culinary Center
Are you looking for a teambuilding activity? Or would you like to learn how to cook like a Michelin-starred chef? You'll find the perfect kitchen to do this in the basement of the Hotel Okura Amsterdam. It's the kitchen of such starred chefs as Akira Oshima (*) and Onno Kokmeijer (**). But it is also your kitchen. The beating heart of the Taste of Okura takes the form of three ivory-white cooking islands. Around these units, Okura chefs give cooking workshops at every level, from beginners and amateur cooks, to semi-professionals and professional chefs. In other words, to you. Together with the Taste of Okura's chef, you'll prepare the dishes. As a result of the culinary diversity within Hotel Okura Amsterdam, workshops will be held about Japanese (traditional and teppanyaki) and French as well as international cuisine. Afterwards there's a chance to enjoy the fruits of your labors together with the other students. The Wine Room at the Taste of Okura is the venue for wine courses and sake tastings. You may join in Taste of Okura workshops as an individual, as a group or on a professional footing.
