Fantastic experience

The class was taken in Akemi's own kitchen and it was formed of only 6 people, so there was a really intimate and friendly atmosphere. Akemi is very sweet and professional and she explains the recipes step by step. She also shares all of her knowledge and she gives you plenty of advises and information.
