Sushi Master Class Review

Thanks so much for this amazing class! Our host Yuka was so friendly and a great teacher. In the class there was just our family (5 of us including a 10 year old). We learnt great techniques to make a variety of different sushi look professional - will definitely be trying this at home. Last but not least, the sushi tasted amazing.

Yum and Fun

My partner and I attended a sushi making class in the home of our chef. Due it to being a rainy Sunday we were the only ones in attendance. Our teacher was fun, knowledgeable, personable and SO very talented. The sushi was delicious and we were exposed to new experiences (such as Wasabi vodka) and tricks of the trade. We will certainly be doing this again!

Perfect! Just perfect!

The class was enjoyable. At the right pace. Our sensei was very knowledgable and tried to give us plenty of information, techniques. At the end of the day, I was very happy to know that I can now prepare a delicious bowl of ramen. Thank you.

Brilliant

We had a brilliant evening. The teacher was great, knowledgeable not just about the ramen recipe we were making but about ramen and Japanese cuisine generally. We made a really delicious meal and definitely will be making it again at home.

A fun and informative evening. Thank you.

A huge thank you to Akemi Yokoyami and the Sozai Cookery School for putting on a fantastic beginners' Ramen course. I consider myself a ramen novice but such was the clarity and ease with which Akemi took us through the basics of cooking ramen that I came away feeling I am definitely ready to cook my own ramen at home.

The style of the class worked really well. Akemi herself is very approachable and extremely knowledgeable so no question was too much trouble for her. Her warm personality also helped create a fun and supportive atmosphere between the participants so as well as being informative the evening was just a lovely way to spend an evening. And of course, once we had gone through our steps of preparing ramen, we had the pleasure of eating what we had made with beer and saki. A fine way to end the evening and I can confirm that freshly made noodles are defiantly a cut above the bought variety. Thank again to Akemi and the Sozai school for a great a evening!

Nice experience

A lovely host and teacher. Good explanations, well prepared and created a nice atmosphere. Almost a private class with just 4 people.

Showed us the fundamentals of sushi rolling. We each had our own mat and made 4 sushi rolls.

I would have liked to make the rice and flavour it. Also I would have liked to cut the vegetable and other ingredients ourselves as it wasn’t really much cooking. Also we would have liked practice more than 4 rolls to get more confident.

Overall, a nice evening but more of an interactive dinner than a cooking class.

Fun and friendly cooking class!

We loved learning katsudon and side dishes with Hitomi, It was a really intimate and relaxed lesson and it felt like we were learning from an old friend. Hitomi's lesson was well-paced, easy to follow and the food was delicious! It was interesting learning about Japanese culture from her and lots of interesting tips that will make Japanese cooking in general much easier. Thank you for a great lesson, we'll be back!
