My partner and I really enjoyed this class! Pros: learned several general cooking tips, the food was fantastic, the Chef was great at breaking down big steps into small pieces, the lesson feels doable at home, and the chef adjusted the recipe to my pescatarian diet once I brought it to his attention. Cons: We did not eat until 9:30 PM, it was a large group for a smaller kitchen so we all watched people rotate cooking instead of being involved in each step, and the chef did not ask about dietary restrictions ahead of time. Overall, fantastic class, just eat a snack before you arrive. :)

Such a great class with a lovely and very knowledgeable chef! Chef Shinya’s teaching style is very easy to follow and the sushi he taught us to make was absolutely delicious. Great energy all around. I would definitely recommend his class and would take another myself!
