Really enjoyed how chef Chris showed us what items he/we were using to prepare our rolls.

A good experience, we did not have avocado and the rice ran out so the last roll you had to share with your partner. This could have been due to the fact that proof of pay to be in the class did not happen… seemed as if some people weren’t supposed to be there. Overall, needed to be more prepared considering what people pay to do this class.

Chris was friendly and kind. He exhibited patience throughout the process. As a teacher I would suggest less “down time “ waiting while he prepares our materials. Having played with our supplies already cut would have been nice. The “students” each need their own knives and water bowls. Sharing a group water bowl for our fingers to apply the sticky rice was unsanitary to say the least. Some sort of name tags or get to know you activity would have been nice. He carried all of our food piece by piece to us with his bare hands. It seemed weird. The food was good, the venue was very loud and it was hard to hear the chef.
