Udon & Kakiage Tempura Class

It was a very good class. I love udon and was delighted to be able to learn how to make it at home. Kinu was very knowledgeable, and very helpful in answering all the questions that we had. It was an incredibly satisfying to sit down for dinner with the food freshly made in class. I really enjoyed the course and I strongly recommend it if you want to learn to cook Japanese food.

Best online cookery course

I really enjoyed this class. There were few participants, which is unusual in an online course, and it was great, since the teacher could follow us properly and answer our questions while still working on the demonstration. Kinu's instructions were clear and she made it look very easy. in fact i managed to do some quite passable mochi and I am delighted with the class. I will definitely take more classes.
