Local chef Kaori Becker of Kaori’s Kitchen returns to the Center for her ramen cooking workshop. Kaori offers classes on modern Japanese cooking that are deliciously tasty, fun and creative, and inspiring and innovative! Come learn how to step up your ramen game and make ramen from scratch directly from Kaori and her mother Yukiko, passing along the culinary knowledge of Kaori’s own grandmother who owned and operated a ramen shop in Fukushima, Japan.


About Kaori Becker: Growing up as a “hapa” (half-Japanese) woman in the Bay Area, Kaori was surrounded by her mother Yukiko’s Japanese home-cooking. When Yukiko told her that many years ago Kaori’s grandmother owned her own  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, beginning to realize  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.
