Grab your apron for a culinary class that will keep the home fires burning while teaching top techniques of the kitchen. Wang Yuke reports.

Do you regret rarely cooking a meal for your family or even sharing dinners with them on the same table?

Or do you owe your other half a surprise because he or she often complains your gifts are too predictable?

Welcome to the ABC Cooking Studio, a culinary classroom bound to rejuvenate love and tantalize the taste buds, while teaching even absolute beginners how to cook scrumptious and sophisticated food.

A Japanese innovation that has been making a buzz in the land of the rising sun, ABC Cooking Studio broke into Hong Kong last November.

Aptly located in K11 Art Mall, which is well known for original designs and products, the cooking studio is designed to arouse people's interest in the culinary arts, provide a medium for socializing and quality time, and basically lend a recreational outlet for stress.

A trial lesson is available before enrollment, which means potential students can have a foretaste of the course to see if it is to their liking.

Instructor Wang Shuting says 99 percent of first-timers take to it and finally settle their tuition payments, proceeding to the long-term basic course ranging from eight months to two years.

Students can choose one of three options - the bakery course, Japanese family course and world course. The world course touches on Italian, Spanish, Korean, Turkish and Thai gastronomy.

One of the biggest appeals, as well as an incentive, is that students of the bakery course, who progress to the master level and pass a test, may be granted a license.

If those qualified students are successfully admitted as mentors in other bakery schools with the widely acknowledged license, then the exclusive ABC bakery recipe can be directly borrowed as the textbook at their disposal without any copyright issues.

There is no minimal requirement for prospective students. Anyone above 12 years old is welcome to learn from scratch.
