I visited Japan this year and wanted to learn to cook some of the foods I had eaten there. This class (was a small group) was amazing and I learnt much more than I had even hoped to, where to buy the ingredients etc. Making the Japanese omelette was great, and coming home with some black cod to cook at home was lovely. Great way to spend a Sunday afternoon and have delicious food.

We learned the basics, the important points and the way to make delicious dishes. Amazing miso soup, japanese omlet, mushroom ginger rice, salad , sesame spinach and black cod. The class size was good enough so we could all cook together.
Brilliant way to spend a sunday afternoon.
