Thank you so much for the class! The class was very fun and easy to follow. We learnt a lot about making Chicken Katsu & Kushi Katsu, and how to also properly make curry as we were following the box instructions before. Kinu is a fantastic teacher!! Will definitely be attending more classes!

Great class! Very easy instructions for preparation and during the class. Kinu-san (teacher) was very helpful and constantly checking on each individual progress.
The dishes were an instant success with my wife and kids, making it now one of my staple home cooking recipes.
I had the chance to try these dishes in Japan and I managed to create even better home made dishes. So easy when you have the tricks from Kinu-san.
