ONLINE SHOJIN VEGAN COOKING 1
Shojin class

Enjoyed the class, there was a lot of cooking but it felt very relaxed. I don't tend to use silken tofu as I dont know how to best use it, so making gammodoki was interesting and turned out very tasty. The background information about shojin was interesting. Looking forward to the next class.

A fun and well-paced class!

I joined the Ichigo Daifuku class and enjoyed learning how to make my own! The pace was excellent and Yukawa-san was conscientious in ensuring that everyone was comfortable and keeping up. If you're interested in Japanese food and culture, learning something new, and doing something a bit different - then I would thoroughly recommend this class!

Superb class

Never had an online cooking class, I almost bailed out due to being nervous. Anyway it was great I didn’t, I enjoyed the lesson so much, our tutor was so lovely when I got the key ingredient wrong (Glutinous rice flour) and improvised a revised recipe. On to sushi V1 & 2 next.
