Chef Justin was wonderful! He was extremely organized when he arrived to our home, and had all the fresh ingredients ready to go. He taught us unique prep techniques (how to cut fish/veggies in different ways), and answered all of our questions along the way. We would definitely recommend Chef Justin to those wanting to learn about sushi and knife techniques! Thank you Justin for a great experience.

Chef Justin made it really easy to follow his class. Everything he did looked effortless. A great experience for anybody like me that loves eating sushi but does not know much about how to make it properly. Now I know!
