Cooking lessons in Hong Kong for domestic helpers for authentic Italian and Japanese cuisines

Since hiring a full time domestic helper at home, I’ve been a huge proponent of training.  Many people complain that their helpers can’t cook for them but the funny thing is that they haven’t bothered to train the helpers properly or invested in any lessons! Since I’m unable to train my helper myself for a wide range of cuisines (as well as being quite busy on the career-front!). I’m a big fan of professional cooking lessons for helpers. Aside from the obvious options...

Great for learning western food (baking, roasting, making soup stock from scratch, salad dressings) and proper house cleaning ( how to germ proof the home and hosting dinner parties)

They run a good Chinese cooking program for helpers (herbal soups, stir fries, braising, casseroles and steaming)

Recently I found a couple of not-so-well known schools, Naomi’s kitchen for Japanese home cooking and Todini Caffe for authentic Italian cuisine

Naomi’s Kitchen

Naomi teaches healthy Japanese home cooking such as fried gyoza (dumplings), Sunomono (vinegared cucumber), cabbage rolls, beef stew, korokke (croquettes) and shiraae (tofu with spinach in sesame and miso dressing).

For lesson schedules please contact

Todini Caffe

I just love these guys! Marco and his brother Stefano regularly holds cooking lessons at their Aberdeen cooking school . During the day they can hold private lessons for helpers. I sent my helper there recently to learn to cook gnocchi (potato pasta) with gorgonzola sauce and Naples style pizza.  You can request lessons for almost any type of Italian dish. They are very Italian in their style and passion for food!

Private lessons for helpers start from $300 HKD per dish which includes the ingredients. You can organize a couple of helpers to share the cost of the lesson.  Please email Marco/Stefano for a quote on requested dishes you want taught.
