A lovely way to spend an evening!

What a delightful way to spend and evening! Not only is it lovely to meet new people, but to spend it learning more about making sushi made it all the more enjoyable. I’m looking forward to putting my improved skills and the new techniques I learned to good use! I highly recommend this to anyone who loves Japanese food or is curious to learn more! Izumi-san is a fantastic teacher! Thank you for teaching us, sensei :)
