Wonderfull Insights and what a Taste!

The class is very well led by a true specialist and your recipe tastes amazing.
The team of 3 is very efficient and you only have to enjoy and listen, as you will get a lot of information.

I would be very happy to have a small recap of the information given out throughout the class as I did not take notes (ie why protein content is important for the flour).

All in all we had a blast and will be looking at other opportunities with Sozai
