The chef Malik makes everything seem simple and gives very clear instructions and makes sure that everyone is doing everything perfectly!

The class was entertaining and informative. It would have been better with more supplies (there was one knife for each 4-person table), and better avocados (the ones we had were not ripe and extremely hard to work with). I also suggest having a more central station to demonstrate each step, and dedicated supplies to do so; Chef Malik used our table and our supplies for the first sushi roll, which made it difficult for others to see (unless they stood up and walked over), and deducted from the rolls we could make on our own. Overall we had a good time, so I'm rating this class 4 stars.
