Where can I learn to make izakaya type dishes like at guu izakaya in Toronto

I haven’t heard of any cooking schools that offer this in North America (but to be honest, I wouldn’t know).But you could certainly try your luck making these foods at home.And if you know a Japanese person, I have found that they are often very happy to help you.

There is also a great hardcover book that is unique (at least in English): “Izakaya: The Japanese Pub Cookbook” at:http://www.amazon.com/Izakaya-Japanese-Cookbook-Mark-Robinson/dp/4770030657 In summary – it’s not as easy as you might think, but definitely worth a try!For grilling (the part I know a little bit), the limiting factors are usually: 1. you really need high quality ingredients (Bay area and Toronto – no problem!)2.a good, congenial group of eaters (if this proves difficult to assemble, please invite me)3. a real konro grill (more concentrated heat, and about 200℉ hotter than Western grills – check them out at: http://korin.com/Shop/Grills-and-Charcoals_2) Oh … most important of all – don’t forget some good jizake!
