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.

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

Loved every second of it! Definitely recommend as a fun interactive event with friends, family or couples.

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!!!!

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.
