The cooking class was very enjoyable. This was enhanced by Yoshiko’s ability to connect and involve everyone in the class. Although the venue was probably a little too small, the experience was fantastic, food delicious and Yoshiko’s little cooking tips/cheats will be noted forever.

Patricia Walters Jul 2022


Teacher excellent. Venue a bit cramped. Good variety of dishes but too much for me to eat! Thanks for all the tips.

Vickie Kucka Feb 2022


Class was very good. Class helpers were very caring and helpful. Good thing our class was only half full. I would not have enjoyed it with 20 + people in attendance, in these times.

Yoshiko was and accomplished conductor in a precisely and efficiently orchestrated operation where nothing was missing or overlooked and everything run smoothly, with utensils and ingredients appearing magically in front of you when they were needed and disappearing once they were no longer needed! All the ingredients were of high quality, usually organic and had to satisfy Yoshiko's high standards. We prepared a number of dishes, ate them at the end and learned about their health properties and what to look for when buying ingredients. It was intense, but always engaging and interesting.

Yoshito was an excellent teacher with a great sense of humour. She obviously knew Japanese cuisine exceptionally well and I loved the tips regarding healthy choices
I cook regularly so didn’t find the course challenging
It was however very enjoyable and enjoyed the food we made
Would probably like to do another class

Excellent teacher. Had a great sense of humour and kept us all entertained. In addition, she was very informative and descriptive in the health benefits of the ingredients we used- which I definitely found useful. I would definitely recommend doing this class if you love healthy Japanese food.
