Great authentic class

Really enjoyed the lesson and making our own ramen from scratch. The prep is done well and the timing precise to get everything done in the 2 hours with lots of explanation along the way. Akemi and her assistant keep everything going like clockwork!
Tasted spectacular and great you get to eat your very own noodles! A lovely treat to finish the lesson.

My girlfriend and I loved this course. Delicious sushi, useful insights and fun techniques were all delivered with a relaxing and warm atmosphere. The class size was kept small so we were easily able to ask questions and receive feedback. Akemi was a perfect host and her onowledge of Japanese cooking was impressive. Highly recommended!
