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.
