Excellent class. I learned a lot and really enjoyed the informal atmosphere. Izumi is a great teacher.
The only additional thing I'd have liked is material to take away (or view on line when I got home e.g videos) to help me remember what I made and how I made it.
What a fantastic, informative and delicious culinary experience.
Izumi was very knowledgeable, friendly and passionate about Japanese culture and cuisine. She made the art sushi making fun, accessible and unintimidating.
I booked a sushi making class for 13 women as part of a hen party. Izi made it all very simple for us and I loved that she demonstrated each piece immediately before we attempted ourselves rather than having one long demonstration. It also meant we had lots of time for questions. The nicest bit was that the ladies laid out a dinner table for us to enjoy the fruits of our labour together!
Thank you for a great class,
I am now preparing to do sushi and I didn’t have any idea in how to do it.
Thanks Izi, see you for the next class. Gabriele.
