Amazing and informative. Covered every element at a easy to understand pace. Loved it thank you
Me and my fiancée really enjoyed this class! Izumi is a very kind teacher who went around to give each of us advice during the rolling of the sushi. Plus with the recipes from the class that we got by email we can easily redo each step at home!
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.
