Very informative and a great intro to Sushi making!
Fun active online gathering!
I booked a private class for 6, and invited my daughter living in Central London and son in Middlesex, relatives and friends in Spain and all over the world.
We were all bored of the usual zoom meeting, but this was lively activity as we all cooked along. In fact not all of us are great fans of Sushi but everyone loved it! Izi was super helpful all the way. We had a great laugh sharing our results with each other. I really recommend this as an on-line bonding event.
We had an excellent online session with Izumi who shared with all of us a wealth of information about sushi. She was very clear and provided us with tips to workaround challenges during the process. I was impressed by what we managed to produce in less than 2h. Highly recommended.
