Amazing atmosphere, amazing guidance, and just really good fun. Plus, you get to eat your ramen at the end of the class. What more can you ask for? Highly recommended.
As a long-time eater, but first time maker, I found this class incredibly informative. Akemi took the time to explain the intricacies and techniques to make proper sushi rice with a really clear method. Some of it can be quite cumbersome (compared to just chucking it all into a cooker) but at the end when you get to eat the sushi you made - you can taste why. The class focused on techniques to roll and prepare four kinds of sushi. I made a few mistakes but Akemi was kind and patient enough to correct me. There was an additional bonus at the end, and we were gifted a sushi-making kit which was a lovely surprise. I really recommend the class, it was straightforward and Akemi is really knowledgeable. For example, we were told the history behind why Japanese measuring cups are 180ml and where to source proper fish in London.
Akemi is the most wonderful host and chef and wonderfully assisted by Angela.
Akemi is so knowledgeable and approachable. The class was interactive and we made 6 authentic Japanese dishes ( miso cod, Japanese omelette, miso soup, vegetable tempura, ginger and mushroom rice and my personal favourite spinach and tofu.
I would thoroughly recommend !
I highly enjoyed the experience and learn a lot of very useful tips. The venue is very warm and welcoming. Everything is clean and most of all, the food is delicious.
Sincerely, thank you to the chef Akemi! It is the best ramen I ate in London. I cannot wait to cook it for my boyfriend.
This course was great, we made lots of different dishes but it didn’t feel rushed or pressured. I learnt new flavours and techniques that I will use again. Kinu was very knowledgeable and welcoming and I enjoyed spending time talking with her and the participant. The food was delicious and I’m hoping to go back for another course soon. I would highly recommend!
It is really difficult to find Japanese dessert making classes in the UK so I was thrilled that Kinu was offering this nerikiri wagashi class in Brighton.
Kinu is an excellent teacher - patiently demonstrating the steps needed and answering all my questions. She has a warm and relaxing approach to her class and it made for a lovely Sunday afternoon. If you’re looking for Japanese food that is not sushi or ramen then this is it. Recommended!
I had such a lovely time at Kinu's class. It was great to see how to get so much flavour from the dishes and of course was so good to eat as the food was tasty! It was a small class which I prefer and I'm looking forward to cooking all these dishes at home.
An amazing session preparing sushi with Chef. He made it interesting, entertaining and informative. Would definitely go again.
