Sozai Japanese Cooking School Launch Evening
Yokoyama sen sei is very kind and friendly patient teacher.I'm very enjoy the class and cooking.Will come back soon.
I really enjoyed my taster session at Sozai. The instructor was really warm and friendly, helpful, informative and gave us enough time to practice the sushi after her demonstrations. The school was very clean and well organised. I wish the session had been longer!
Good fun course
My sister and I attended this class because it was gifted to us for Christmas. The lead up was full of anticipation and wonder, and the result itself did not disappoint our expectations. Akemi was knowledgeable and kind, she explained in detail the process of making every dish and asked for questions regularly to ensure we were all on the same page. She understood the troubles of the inexperienced Japanese chef with regards to ingredients and technique, and reassured us with lists of Japanese supermarkets and constant comparisons to techniques we may be more familiar with. The class was interactive yet not too difficult; it became a class effort to make all the dishes which we were not expecting, but nevertheless it ensured we had her full attention all along the way. The result was delicious!!!! The rice dish had been sat since the beginning of class and was emitting a beautiful aroma that had our mouths watering and begging for the 'feast' to begin! Would highly recommend. Thank you Akemi!!!
Yuka makes sushi making look fun and interactive. Maybe add some more complex dishes to the class, otherwise brilliant class.
The instructor Yuka was very friendly and patient to teach us beginners how to make roll sushi. She isn't only friendly, but also I saw that she did pay attention on every single student as much as she could in the given time. We also witnessed that she did demonstrate her professional cooking skills as much as she could in the limited setting what she was allowed to use. I think this class is perfect for beginners to open a new door for beautiful Japanese cuisine via making sushi... How she demonstrated bits of her cooking knowledge made at least me curious to know and understand more about Japanese cooking! Her talking and teaching skills are excellent. as she is fun(she makes boring or complicated topics to be fun! She is great to make such things to be an entertainment for even unenthusiastic students) and make us feel easy when we are naturally intimidated by the lack of our own cooking skills in front of a well qualified chef like her. She makes it so easy for us to understand how to make sushi even though it was mystery to us... It was so much fun to make roll sushis with her and fellow students together. It's the best way to learn anything by listening and doing at the same time! She was one of the best instructors to facilitate the great learning environment as far as I remember in all my life, as I attended some cooking classes so far. I recommend her class if you want to learn about cooking, even if you don't know anything about it! She isn't threatening but just so kind, warm, fun and patient to teach! Thank you so much Ms Yuka for teaching us on the precious Sunday morning! The sushi we made by having your instruction was so tasty! Thank you so much! I've truly enjoyed everything in the class!
Yuka was averu good entertainer with her charming conversation. She demonstrated how to cook sushi rice, which was very practical way for begginers.
She should have her own TV cookig show.
The class was for the begginers.It wast very simple and consice but very enough to get basic idea and techniqu of sushi. I may be able to make sushi for my guest next week. She sent me the recipe and some shopping list after classes by email. That was very usuful.
Only downside was prepared kniofe for us was not sharp enough to cut sushi roll.
I reccomend for small team building occaision.
We had a fantastic time during our lesson! Izumi is very patient and really explains everything in detail. We learnt a lot! Going through the correct process of how to cook the sushi rice has made all the difference to our sushi making at home. I would highly recommend this course to anyone wanting to get the hang of the basics because the results are great!
This was a great course to do with Izi. She is really very knowledgeable and we had a chance to make lots of different types of sushi, as well as take lots of it home with us. Thank you, I would definitely recommend this course to friends!
This was my first sushi class and I couldn't be more satisfied. Izzy was great, gave us lots of tips that I believe will make the difference once I am gonna try by myself. I tried watching youtube demonstration before but is not the same...this class is just perfect!!!
