PABLO BRAVO

I really appreciate the lesson given. I wanted to know how to cook ramen, so the class was really helpful for me. In addition, it was pretty clear and the professor also gave us additional insights on how to enjoy different kinds of ramen. It was a blast.

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!
