1/2 Day Essential Ramen Class (Online)
Nothing but fantastic!

I had a fantastic afternoon learning about ramen, and mastering how to make every element of ramen from stock to noodle to even Char Siu pork from scratch which I never thought I could do by myself at home.

Our instructor Akemi made sure everyone was on the track at every stage so no one was left behind at any point. Her instruction was very clear and precise, it was easy to follow her.

Akemi was so friendly and accommodating. She instructed us a few alternative recipes for a certain topping/sauce that fit everyone's dietary restrictions.

The result of the ramen making was a big success. It made me feel so proud that I was able to make it. The Char Siu was definitely one of the best ones I have ever tasted in my life.

I cannot recommend this class enough!

Fantastic Ramen world!

I attended Akemi-san’s half day Ramen Cooking class. It was an amazing experience.
Even though I am Japanese and I still learned a lot about ramen and even different eating cultures between the UK and Japan. Akemi-san is a very experienced and energetic instructor. She kept an eye on each of us very well. It is quite a task to make good ramen, and it turned out to be a delicious success! The chicken and kombu broth and Chashu pork was amazing. Although I can not eat gluten, she gave me very practical advice. We ate shoyu ramen on the day and will have miso ramen the next day. Thank you very much, Akemi-san.
I definitely learned a lot from this class and would recommend it to others.

Professional Ramen Class!

It was a great pleasure to attend Akemi’s online half day Essential Ramen class on Sunday afternoon.
Easy, Fun, Tasty… I’ve learned so many thing about Ramen deeply.
I’ve actually made various Ramen since then. So delicious!

It is a good idea to have a few breaks during the class, with no stress!
As Akemi stays online during the breaks, so we could ask her some questions as well.

I will definitely take another online class of Akemi in the near future.
Highly recommend. Arigato Akemi Sensei!

1/2 Day Essential Ramen Class

The whole of the family had a wonderful afternoon learning about the history of ramen and how to cook it.
Akemi, guided us through various techniques for: ramen chicken stock, char shu pork, ramen paste, toppings and the most amazing ramen noodles. The results were delicious aromatic ramen, with bouncy noodles - and yes we drank all the broth!
We live in France, so being able to do the on-line cooking classes with Sozai is terrific, infact even if we lived in London, I think we'd opt for the on-line class as it's lovely to do this at home with friends or/and family.
We're looking forward to the next class.
