Guests from all over the world come to my private kitchen to learn Japanese cuisine almost every day.
FYI: Top 30 Ranking
Some of you may know that Japanese cuisine, called Washoku, was registered as the Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO in 2013.
Since Tokyo will host the Olympic Games in 2020, the charm of Japanese cuisine and culture will slowly be acknowledged all over the world.
I have always been asked by my guests how I started my cooking class business. So, I wanted to make this cookbook not only about sharing recipes but also about telling entrepreneurial stories like how I became the No.1 cooking class in Japan.
Building a start-up business is such a challenge. In addition to the charm of Japanese cuisine, I include the stories about self-producing, overcoming challenges and realizing self-actualization.
In this cookbook, I share top 5 popular recipes among my cooking class guests.
1. Dashi (Soup Stock) *Important soup for Japanese cuisine
2. Ramen (Soy Sauce Based)
4. Gyoza Pastry
I produced a sample, 28 page cookbook. The design was done by my husband (who is a professional art director).
I left the last 2 pages blank for you! In these pages, the first 50 supporters will have their name and short messages included in the cookbook. Since I started my cooking class business, I have been supported by many people. This made me want to try crowd funding and make a special cookbook with my supporters.
The funding term is short but please support this project !
As a reward, you can get our original eco bag, tote bag, apron etc.
I'm planning to hold a cookbook launch party in May 2019.
For the Everything stage, you can get all the YUCa's Japanese Cooking original products.
You can ask questions for this project from here (FAQ).
Risks and challenges
Every project has risks, but I'm happy to tell you that the almost all work in this cookbook is already done.
Crowd founding is all about communication. The most important thing is to be honest and stay in touch.
I'm here to involve you the process, keep in fun and entertaining, and make sure you get more than what you expect!
