Simply fantastic!

We came to Izumi's sushi masterclass for my son's 12th birthday and it was just perfect! Izumi is a great teacher and we learnt so much. I especially loved learning the dragon rolls, and we'll be doing those again tomorrow they were so much fun. Would absolutely recommend her class to anyone wanting a great day learning how do make better sushi. Thanks again!

Wonderful! Excellent! Authentic and fun!

My daughter and her friend had an excellent time with Izzy and came away energised, knowledable and enthusiastic for making sushi. I can't recommend this wonderful team enough! My daughter also learnt a little of the history of making sushi and shared it with her friends and family. We are all inspired now. Thank you Sozai Cooking School. Book today! :)

Great fun!

Everything that I was hoping it would be. Instructor is superb and the whole experience is really fun. We had a good group of classmates, which was a benefit as well. Highly recommended as a very enjoyable way to learn something new.

My first experience!

Although I have made sushi before, my sushi was totally different, much more beautiful and tastier after several useful tips from the professional!
I have never imagined that the cookery class was so fun and fulfilling. You can attend the class alone because the atmosphere is pleasant and instructor , Izzy is very friendly and helpful. My husband was so happy to eat my improved sushi when I brought some back home.
I think that this class is ideal to start your cooking experience and I would like to attend longer one next time. Thank you, Izzy and your assistant!
