We really enjoyed sushi making masterclass.
It was interactive, fun and we are now able to make sushi at home! Will definetely comeback for some other Japanese cooking classes.
My wife & I had a wonderful time at Izumi's sushi class. We learned a lot of great tips and surprised ourselves at the delicious sushi we made! I would definitely book one of her classes again.
My partner and I have attended one of Izumi’s long run sushi class since 2013. As our friend recommended us it was a fantastic experience. We had nice welcoming and very informative session. Enjoyed Japanese beer & delicious sushi after that. Also a gift bag to take home. Definitely 5 stars from us. Thank you!!
My mum bought this as a gift for myself and my partner, Rachel.
We had a fantastic time. It was fun and a great way to spend a morning.
Thank you so much for instructing us in a new skill,
