The class received ★★★★ from TIMEOUT

"As we crowded round the kitchen stove, teacher Akemi Yokoyama talked us through the intricacies of washing and cooking sushi rice correctly. So far – easy peasy, Japanesey. Next it was on to flipping thin omelettes ready to wrap into present-like sushi parcels tied with chive ribbons. The cooking over, we then moulded, folded, wrapped and stuffed to produce round temari sushi, sweet tofu pouches inverted and filled with multicoloured topping, and our omelette parcels. But the most impressive trick was left until last. Maki rolls were cut lengthways, inverted around a cucumber baton, then rolled in another piece of nori seaweed. You end up with geometric sushi that looks like a stained glass window." https://www.timeout.com/london/food-and-drink/sozai-cooking-school

Japanese Home Cooking with Sozai is the best

Thank you for an informative, interesting and delicious insight to Japanese home cooking. I enjoyed your warm and engaging style of talking about the food, demonstrating the techniques and the explanation about the chemistry of flavours. You have encouraged me to try the recipes at home and incorporate into my own home cooking.
