So much fun and so educational! Chef Mori is hysterical and still so informative. We can’t wait to come back to another class of hers!

We did a date night with a Groupon we had bought pre-COVID. We were hesitant at first, but were very pleased to see everything spaced out appropriately and a very small/limited class size. Each of us made two sushi rolls, which was plenty of food. We learned a lot about how to make the food as well as the culture. Overall, a great experience. Highly recommend.

Chef Mori knows her Japanese food and culture and is not apologetic about it. In the sushi class, we learned a brief history and manners on Japanese culture, eating habits, chopstick handling, funeral etiquette and buying the right damn rice. Rice makes the difference people, so splurge! I attended the class with my husband as a fun Friday night outing and we're equipped with the basic knowledge to go out and buy sushi fixings to make it ourselves. The ingredients were delicious and our sushi rolls tasted wonderful (much better than the basic rolls you'd get at local restaurants). The class teaches you enough to be dangerous and impressive to your friends. Chef Mori explains things simply, but eloquently. The class was hands-on, so we weren't just watching her make stuff and put it on our plates. I still have more to learn about the art of sushi rolling, but practice makes perfect. I plan to attend Chef Mori's potsticker class next. Highly recommend!

Mori is so much fun! The class was interesting and engaging without being too serious. Mori is so knowledgeable and very funny. The sushi we made was delicious. Mori teaches you not only how to make these rolls but also where to find the ingredients locally and online. I learned I’ve been making rice wrong my whole life. Cannot recommend this class enough. We had so much fun. Remember to bring some booze! We brought some Japanese beer which went great with the sushi.

Chef Mori presents a lot of useful and interesting information in an entertaining way! She communicated clearly and made sure everyone was able to follow along. I would like to take more classes from her in the future. I'm glad that I learned a little bit about Japanese culture as well as the specific dish that we were making.

I had a wonderful time and enjoyed delicious food. Chef Mori was an expert who could explain everything about each ingredient and where to get the high grade versions. The instructions were straightforward, and I can easily picture taking another class from her.

Purchased sushi class as a gift for my son and he said Chef Mori was awesome! He signed up for another class.

Chef Mori was just a blessing to our date night. We learned the culturally correct way of making sushi and about her own heritage and experiences. Oh and greedily ate the sushi rolls we made (with chopsticks). Yum freakin yum.

So fun and informative!

Chef Mori did an amazing job with our very first sushi lesson! She covered Japanese culture, chopstick etiquette, and a wide variety of other traditional topics as she was teaching us to make sushi, which made for a very fun and interesting lesson. The two sushi rolls we made were great, and I am confident in our ability to replicate them thanks to Chef Mori's explanation of stores to go to, products to look for, etc. She even had cute traditional place settings to take pictures of our finished product on! Will definitely be interested in attending more of her classes.

Chef Mori was so knowledgeable about all the food that we made for our class. There were plenty of utensils and ingredients for all of the class mates. She was extremely prepared and passionate about cooking. This was my partner and I’s first cooking class together and we definitely plan on taking more of Chef Mori’s programs in the future! We had an amazing time.

Had a great time! Very good instruction while keeping the atmosphere fun & engaging. I would highly recommend the spring roll & potsticker class, and I can hardly wait to take the sushi class. Thanks Chef Mori!

14 Feb 2020

No this was the worst experience I ever encountered . Very unprofessional and at a very unsafe and unfamiliar area. I felt very unsafe inside of the venue. Could not focus because of all the noise she was trying to talk over. Did not get a heads up that she would have her son there. Could not focus and would not recommend her to anyone. Stay away for this. She should let you know if her son would be there

11 Jan 2020

Chef Mori was a wonderful teacher and made the evening extra fun with her great humor! We will definitely be coming back for another class with her. Fabulous evening!!
