Yoshiko's class was superb - exceeding my expectations! I feel inspired to cook regular healthy meals as well having learned some great easy remedies to cure everyday viruses. It was a real bonus to be able to buy many of the yummy organic ingredients after the class. Both Yoshiko and her lovely assistant were so generous, gracious and fun!
