Chef Lee was a great teacher for the Sushi class for Beginners. She was patient, friendly, and very encouraging. My husband and I had a great experience taking her class. The sushi and desert were delicious, and we had plenty of sushi after her class that we enjoyed later in the day. We can’t wait to become Sushi CHEFs! Love, the Norments

Great class! So informative and patient! We had a lot of dietary restrictions and she just went with the flow and made happen! I appreciate her and her hubby and her two dogs! Also, I have a tip!
