I really enjoyed the class . I’d love to have a recording if possible because they are nuances I would repeat hearing again and again. The teacher was fabulous!
I will do more of her classes.
Thank you so much for such a wonderful cooking class! We never made sushi before but actually the magic happened in 60 mins. The instructor was so charming, informative and also very patient. Our home made sushi was super yummy. We are pleased that her list of ingredients were all available from our super market. We'll definitely book another class.
Good course although slightly too fast when having to look at a screen and then focus on what I was doing at home particularly as I went wrong on the inside out roll. The instructions did not tell us to have a bamboo mat so I assumed that we would be rolling using a towel and cling film in the manner of a Swiss roll. A mat would have made life a lot easier. It would be helpful to have a print out giving the quantities of ingredients needed for the sushi vinegar along with the initial instructions. The sushi tasted good and I am looking forward to practising at home. Overall good course.
Really enjoyed the Sushi Master Class 2. Lots of top tips and a great result at the end. Confident to move on to the next level.
