Individual workshops

The cooking workshops, lasting around 4,5 hours, take place in Taste of Okura. All the dishes will be explained before you, with a glass of good wine or sake in hand, have a go at making them yourself. When everything is ready, you take your place at the table to enjoy all the delicious dishes you have made. At the end of the cookery workshop, you are given all the recipes to take home with you. Curious about the workshops? Have a look at our workshop overview.

Private workshops

The cooking studio can be rented for private cooking workshops for groups up to 35 guests. Interested? Request a proposal and our restaurant reservations team will contact you shortly.

Wine room

In addition to a kitchen, the culinary center also has a wine room where wine and sake tastings are organized for a maximum of 18 guests. Sommelier Noël Vanwittenbergh explains how to pair wine with food for optimum effect, helps you develop a discerning taste in wine, shows you how to distinguish between different grape sorts and the varieties of flavour from continent to continent. The Wine Room is also available for group cocktails. Contact the Reservations team for more information and reservations for the Wine room via +31 (0)20 6787 450.

Allergies and medical dietary requirements

It is important to us that our guests with allergies or medical dietary requirements receive our utmost care in preparing their meals. Since in the cooking workshops the guests prepare the dishes themselves, it is not possible to guarantee that the food served will be free of allergens. Therefore, for guests with an allergy or medical dietary requirement, our chefs will prepare their meal separately and serve this during the workshop. The guest is welcome to participate in cooking the group menu with his or her fellow guests if this does not risk an allergic or medical reaction. Please inform us of your allergy or medical dietary requirement when reserving your place in the workshop so that we can make the necessary arrangements.
