About Kaori's Kitchen

Creating a community of empowerment, teamwork, and creativity through
​cooking together.

Kaori's mission is to deepen relationships through authentic interactions while cooking, and create a space where conscientious individuals, employees, co-workers, friends, and family can come together to make a positive difference in their local community.

Kaori's Kitchen is a culmination of her love of cooking and her desire to share this love with those who also love food. Growing up as a "hapa" (half-Japanese) woman in the Bay Area, Kaori was surrounded by her mother's Japanese home-cooking. When her mother told her many years ago that Kaori's grandmother ran a ramen shop in Fukushima, Japan, Kaori decided to dive deeper into her roots through cooking ramen.

​After studying and specializing in ramen-from-scratch, Kaori taught a class at The Seasoned Farmhouse, a recreational cooking school in Columbus, Ohio, in 2014. Shortly afterwards, Kaori taught other classes at Franklin Park Conservatory, centering around Asian cuisine, including Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Thai and Indian. In 2015, while teaching English to high school students, Kaori ran a bi-weekly cooking club every month. Kaori began realizing that her passion for cooking, and teaching others how to cook, was greater than her passion to teach English. After moving to the Bay Area in the summer of 2016, Kaori created her business, Kaori's Kitchen.

Vendor website

We had a great time making mochi. The team had fun mashing the dough together and we had some great conversations while making lots of tasty mochi.
We had an awesome experience with Kaori at our Mochi Making Class! She came and set everything up for us. Our team had a blast making different kinds of mochi, smashing the rice, stirring, etc... We were laughing so much & having a ton of fun that a lot of other people in our office heard us and wanted to see what we were doing! Thanks Kaori for a great time & experience! I will definitely refer people to this class!
