Brilliant teacher, explained all tips and tricks with humour. Made amazing sushi and now confident I can make my own! Would definitely recommend x
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!
I contacted Sozai to take a customized class as I’m a private chef looking to elevate my knowledge and skills of Japanese cuisine, they were very understanding and helpful. I took a class with Yuka, who has incredible knowledge of Japanese cuisine (our focus was sushi, sashimi and Kaiseki) as well as Japanese culture and how it translates into food. Yuka is such an inspiring and lovely person, I not only learnt from a great chef, but made a dear friend too. I would highly recommend the same to another chef, but also home cooks that are wanting to learn.
Wonderful teacher and course , with fantastic attention to detail and just amazingly tasty result! Would highly recommend. A.
I had a really lovely time at the Gyoza Cooking Class. It was a class of three people and we were taught to make Gyoza from start to finish (including pastry skins) in a comfortable atmosphere. I actually didn't want to leave after the 2 hours were up and I will definitely be going back again for another class.
We thoroughly enjoyed our cooking class at Sozai Cooking School . Yuka was a wonderful instructor, full of personality and showed us how easy it was to make Gyoza. We couldn't recommend it enough especially if you want to learn about Japanese cuisine. Th class was fun, relaxed and of course delicious!
We had a great time and were impressed with how much we'd made by the end. Would definitely recommend it! Chris & Joëlle
My partner and I went to Yuka's sushi class on Saturday 27 July and we had a wonderful time.
We arrived promptly at 11.00 and everything was ready and waiting for us. Yuka was very friendly and with a great sense of humour. She put us at ease and explained and demonstrated the techniques with great enthusiasm.
Our group of 7 was just the right size to ensure personal tuition and assistance when required!
We all achieved great results and then sat together enjoying our creations with a glass. We even taught Yuka a new song - "If you knew Sushi, like I know Sushi.."
Today, Sunday, my partner has gone off to our local Japanese supermarket to purchase the necessary equipment and supplies to make our own at home.
