I took my college aged daughter to learn to make Sushi. Chefs were very friendly and eager to share their passion. Instructions were simple and straightforward and help was available, if needed. We had sixteen people in our session. A few dates, some small groups of friends and a few groups of parents and adult kids. A fun and relaxed way to learn something new while enjoying a cold craft beer. Do yourself a favor and sign up for this class. Thanks Chefs!

The instructors were great and the sushi was delicious 😋 However, the setting for preparing raw food is not ideal. The Craft beer bar allows dogs indoors (unhygienic) and is loud so challenging to hear instructions.

The posting should make the time zone clearer. I signed up for what I thought was a 7 pm class only to discover it was 10 pm Eastern time so i could not attend.

Chef Vivian and Chef Michi were beyond welcoming. We had absolutely no sushi making experience going into it and after just a few hours, feel confident that we can prepare a meal for our friends. Recipes are delicious and easy. My husband and I truly enjoyed the night and highly recommend their class.

We had a great time learning and cooking a delicious Italian meal! Great class, great eats, and great conversation was just my wife and I needed to relax and do something fun together.
03 Dec 2022
Chefs were very nice but the venue was not. Restaurant setting with long table. Soccer World Cup playing on several TVs. I could barely hear the instructions.
Menu was extremely basic even for a beginners class. Fortunately class was half price. Had I paid full price I would have been very disappointed

Excellent, fast-paced class.
03 Jun 2022
They don’t call it “sushi making secrets” for nothing. We learned sooo much and the sushi and desert was really good. The chefs were really nice and personable. They definitely put in the 10,000 hours to know what they’re talking about. My mom said it was her best birthday ever!!!!
06 May 2022
Great recipes and a fun class. The email before class was super helpful to have everything prepped! Thanks for all your encouragement and instruction.
20 Apr 2022
Such an incredible experience! Chef Vivian and Chef Michi were so humble and made us feel so welcomed. Their professionalism and expertise exceeded our expectations. Not only did we learn a new recipe but they taught us so many great cooking tips we will use in our future cooking ventures. Both chefs guided us patiently throughout the whole class and made sure we were comfortable. We are definitely coming back for another class!

Thank you so much for the class! It was a fun learning experience :)
05 Feb 2021
It was a fun selection of food items. Sadly, the ingredients were not all listed nor some of the amounts. During the class, there were items that were not mentioned in the directions. I had hoped to hear more from Michi's experience with the food in Japan- he did not have much time to talk. Finally, we seemed to end class about 20 minutes early and a slower pace may have been helpful.
