It was great and Akemi was very friendly and adaptable to just the two participants and end result delicious. I really enjoyed the history and culture behind ramen making. I suppose my only comment about the course was that the course could be shortened by suggesting the two lengthy parts of the dish be cooked beforehand? I had to do this anyway as I had difficulty in obtaining a chicken carcass but had ready made stock in the freezer and had to pre-cook the belly pork but preferred to do this so I could skim off excess fat.
