One of the best cooking classes I have done!

I have done many cooking courses in my life but this ranks as one of the best. Akemi has a true passion for the food being made and this manifests itself through her detailed instructions, inside tips and personal experiences. As a small class, Akemi ensured that we were all well looked after - assisting us where required and answering any and all questions we threw at her. I honestly could not fault it! I would definately attend a class she hosts again!

I loved this class. Teaching was really friendly and gives out a ton of information. They took a dish I personally found to intimidating to try and cook and gave me the confidence to cool this at home.
