This class was delightful! Chef Jordan was a really great instructor and kept the class fun and lighthearted. His stories about his work as a chef were really interesting, and he offered some great food recs in DC after the class. Would highly recommend the sushi making to anyone looking to have a lot of fun while learning a unique type of cooking.

We had a great experience with Chef Jordan's sushi class. It was a nice small group and he took time to explain all the steps, but also made the class fun. I would highly recommended this class!
