My 9 year old daughter and I recently attended a 2 hour sushi making course. We both loved it and learnt so much. Everyone was so friendly and accommodating. We can’t wait to try out our new skills next weekend and are planning to return again for another course. Thank you!
My mum and I had the best time learning how to make vegan sushi with Izzi! She was very kind and incredibly knowledgeable. The sushi we made was so good we went out and bought ingredients to make more! You are also given a lovely goody bag to get you started at home.
We stayed to eat our sushi there and were offered a drink- I tried the sparkling sake- aswell as green tea/water throughout the course.
A lovely way to spend a few hours gaining a new skill- we will be back to learn more!
Thank you so much such a wonderful Sushi & Sake master class course for our team day.
All of our team were extremely impressive and fully enjoyed the programme with full immersion into wonderful Sushi & Sake culture and its taste most importantly.
We did the 2-hr sushi making class as a team-building activity for 10 of us. Everybody had a great time - the chef was very nice and made everything really easy.
