The class received ★★★★ from TIMEOUT

"As we crowded round the kitchen stove, teacher Akemi Yokoyama talked us through the intricacies of washing and cooking sushi rice correctly. So far – easy peasy, Japanesey. Next it was on to flipping thin omelettes ready to wrap into present-like sushi parcels tied with chive ribbons. The cooking over, we then moulded, folded, wrapped and stuffed to produce round temari sushi, sweet tofu pouches inverted and filled with multicoloured topping, and our omelette parcels. But the most impressive trick was left until last. Maki rolls were cut lengthways, inverted around a cucumber baton, then rolled in another piece of nori seaweed. You end up with geometric sushi that looks like a stained glass window." https://www.timeout.com/london/food-and-drink/sozai-cooking-school

This was a great class, Akemi is very passionate about Japanese food and shared the background of the ingredients and the dish. It was a very relaxed class and went along at a nice pace. The end result was delicious, even though its common in Japan to eat the noodles and leave the soup, this recipe is too good not to finish it all!
