My partner and I really enjoyed this class! Pros: learned several general cooking tips, the food was fantastic, the Chef was great at breaking down big steps into small pieces, the lesson feels doable at home, and the chef adjusted the recipe to my pescatarian diet once I brought it to his attention. Cons: We did not eat until 9:30 PM, it was a large group for a smaller kitchen so we all watched people rotate cooking instead of being involved in each step, and the chef did not ask about dietary restrictions ahead of time. Overall, fantastic class, just eat a snack before you arrive. :)

Such a great class with a lovely and very knowledgeable chef! Chef Shinya’s teaching style is very easy to follow and the sushi he taught us to make was absolutely delicious. Great energy all around. I would definitely recommend his class and would take another myself!

Chef Shinya was a font of information about sushi & sushi making. He made it feel easy, and we look forward to making sushi at home! I surprised Hubby with this sushi-making class for our anniversary, and it was so much more than I expected! We definitely got more than our money’s worth! I highly recommend!

It was amazing experience to join this cooking class. Chef Shinya is very professional, friendly, as well as informative. The class is easy to learn and replicate at home. The food ingredients are fresh and taste excellent. The fresh wasabi is the best. We will definitely come again.
