Yoshiko’s class was highly educational, an enjoyable and entertaining experience! The food was delicious and we found Yoshiko to be an extremely amazing, genuinely informative and savage but hilarious teacher! Hahahaha! Highly recommended! Arigatou gozaimasu! Steven & Thanh.

Cooking class review by Steven Ly - Sydney

Margie Bowen-Jones Apr 2024

Yoshiko was a wonderful teacher with a great sense of humour which added to the enjoyment of our cooking lesson. Her enthusiasm and knowledge for Japanese Healthy ingredients gave us an appreciation of 'really good' Soya and Miso Ramen.
All the food we prepared was delicious and now it's very difficult for me to buy already prepared Ramen Noodle soups

Sue Hartman Apr 2024

I did the course because I wanted other ideas for plant base cooking. It makes such a difference going to a class rather than just following a recipe. You learn little tips which are very useful. Yoshiko has a great personality and really enjoyed her class.

Rosemary Grant Apr 2024

Yoshiko and her team were fabulous teachers and it was a fun class. I learnt a few great recipes which I’m sure will be on the menu for … perhaps even ever! Thanks to all

Rhordon Balthazaar Apr 2024

We were gifted this class and we were so glad to have chosen this one! Our teacher was engaging and really helpful, we’ve come away with a lot of practical tips and recipes despite not being previously confident in the kitchen, and we really enjoyed the social element of the class too.

Jacob Hatze Mar 2024

I loved the knowledge base and the small facts about the kogi culture and nutritional information.
Also Yoshika was hilarious

Gwendoline Chaikin Mar 2024

Excellent informative class. Yoshiko is such an entertaining teacher and shared a wealth of information from her extensive experience in the food industry. I would highly recommend this class.

Yoshiko and her Team provide a wonderful, informative and interactive Japanese cooking class. Materials are provided, the whole class in included, techniques are explained. Venue is great and at the end you sit down to a wonderful Japanese meal. I would recommend this experience.

Tracey Wakeford Mar 2024

Yoshiko is amazing, she teaches with a great sense of humour and shares her years of knowledge with each class. It was fabulous to sit down at the end and eat what we made in class, the food was delicious! I absolutely loved the class today and can’t wait to try all the recipes at home. Thank you, Yoshiko for a great class.

Wendy Mou Mar 2024

Enjoyed this cooking class thoroughly. I learnt so much about ingredients and got lots of informative tips. It also wasn’t just a boring class, Yoshiko was fun and fabulous. This class was in Cremorne part of Mosman. Getting here by public transport was very efficient and hassle free. The venue is very close to public transport stops. Also you always get to meet lovely people in these settings.

Helen West Mar 2024

A great class, Yoshiko was a brilliant and fun teacher, who keep the class moving along quickly. The food was amazing, I can't wait to try these recipes at home!

Izzah Tariq Awan Feb 2024

Absolutely loveedddd this class! Yoshiko made it so entertaining and made this class funny and exciting!
She taught us a lot about matcha that previously I was unaware of. The food was really good and Thai class was highly interactive. Not only but she was accommodating to any requirements we had (removing mirin from soba).
Genuinely enjoyed this class and would highly recommend :)

Nadine Darryn Wijaya Feb 2024

Yoshiko was a very fun teacher! She made sure that everyone had a chance at participating in every step of the cooking. We learnt lots of stuff about matcha and its preparation. If there is a more advanced matcha class, we would definitely sign up for it! Thank you for the amazing class

Matcha Lovers High Tea Cooking Class review by Nadine Darryn Wijaya - Sydney

Joyee Lee Feb 2024

Yoshiko was great and very engaging. The venue was small but cozy. We ended up learning lots about how to cook but also the ingredients and some background of Japanese food. It was more of a demonstration than everyone gets to cook their own meals. Overall I had a great time and would recommend for beginners looking to start somewhere. Thanks yoshiko and team

Hilary de Joux Feb 2024

Friendly energetic host, a demonstration and talk about Japanese cooking, some opportunities for some of the group to participate.

Sue Hartman Feb 2024

I found Yoshiko fun and entertaining coupled with incredible knowledge of the products we were using in our cooking course. We made recipes that easily translated to a meal that we could make at home. I can highly recommend this course.

A fast and fun class! All notes are provided and top quality ingredients used.
Shows you how easy it is to bring new elements to you weekly dinner prep.
Attended with my wife and we both loved it.
Team that run is fantastic.

Kasia Fijalek Feb 2024

Oh what a cooking class!
Matcha Lovers High Tea Cooking Class with Yoshiko was so much fun! We all got to make something and got very much involved in cooking/prep process. Yoshiko was so funny while very informative. I’ve learned things I didn’t expect to learn which was really good. The group was lovely and the end result was delicious. We have learned to make so many interesting dishes.
I loved that at the end we all got to sit down and taste everything.
Thank you Yoshiko and the team!
Can’t wait to do another class

We had an incredible experience at this matcha cooking class! Yoshiko was so knowledgable and we came away with tons of learnings about different types of matcha, cooking with matcha, and all of matcha’s amazing health benefits. The class was highly engaging and hands-on, and Yoshiko provided plenty of instruction and feedback which we loved. Highly recommend for any matcha lovers!

Lara Scott Feb 2024

My daughter and I just did Yoshiko’s gut health cooking class. Yoshiko was great and hopefully we will be able to incorporate some more of these Japanese super foods into our cooking to eat more healthily. Many thanks Yoshiko!

Joanna Goh Feb 2024

A fun bonding experience for my cousin and I with our passion for matcha Teacher Yoshiko was fun, lively, well educated about matcha and good explanations during the lesson. Venue was good intimate size and excellent quality ingredients . We learnt a savoury soba dish and a few matcha based desserts including fudge, matcha popcorn, jelly type Azuki bean dessert, mock tail, mochi balls-
All delicious

I loved how fun Yoshiko is and her frankness

Deb Dibley Jan 2024

Loved learning the fundamentals from Yoshiko, as well the insider advice on which brands to buy/avoid when purchasing Japanese supplies. Was surprised and impressed by how much we all learned together in such a short amount of time.

David Dawes Jan 2024

Great day being amused/educated by Yoshiko. The class was hands on and very informative and resulted in a delicious lunch of a range of dishes simple to replicate at home.
Yoshiko’s knowledge of the nutritional benefits of the ingredients was broad and fascinating.
Fun and excellent value for moneyI’ll be back!

Shannon Grover Dec 2023

Teacher was very informative and passionate about cooking. I had a good afternoon and would recommend.

Nadia Fronteddu Dec 2023

Class was fun and hands-on for everyone during tempura cooking. It helped me get over my fear of oil splatters haha. We ate everything we cooked. Dessert was really good too!

Yoshiko san was very lively and shared a lot of tips for choosing good ingredients and cooking to keep the nutrients. Will be back for more cooking classes in the future!

Quinn Ritchie Dec 2023

Yoshiko had such a great energy and made the class a lot of fun. The venue was kind of cramped because the class was overbooked for some reason but they made it work. We all got to help out with preparing and plating up the meal. Yoshiko shared a tonne of tips and knowledge about Japanese cooking. The only negative is that there were so much content it was hard to keep up and I'm sure I've forgotten a lot of what was shared

Simon Debnam Dec 2023

Great host, very engaging class. The cooking session was informative, fun and hands on. The food was great, we had an amazing time.

Andrew Stewart Nov 2023

Loved the content, energy, healthy ingredients and end results. Will certainly return again. Thank you.

Carol Appleby Aug 2023

I thoroughly enjoyed the experience of the Basics Intensive Japanese Cooking class. Yoshiko explained every step and we all got plenty of opportunities to cook under her guidance. The support staff were very friendly and generous with their assistance. I would recommend this class if you want to get excited and confident to try more Japanese cooking at home. Carol Appleby

Hansen Yap Jul 2023

It's definitely a nice class if you had no experience before with dumplings and gyozas.

Kelly Nield Jul 2023

We loved our cooking experience. We made two types of ramen plus a salad and dessert. Yoshiko was energetic and funny. She provided lots of tips around the nutrients in all the ingredients we used. The class was informative and the food was delicious.

Jess Goh Jul 2023

I really enjoyed Yoshiko's communication style and her passion for alkaline way of eating. Her assistants were very friendly and supportive in how I need to cook. I really had a fun time with the participants and the crew. The meal was super delicious and very happy that it's plant based as I'm vegan. I'm definitely coming back again for another cooking class to dive deeper into Japanese healthy way of cooking

Amazing class. Well paced. Appreciated Yoshiko sharing her knowledge on the best ingredients. Lots of interaction with the group. Beautiful food.

Julie Wong Jun 2023

A bit expensive. I picked up a couple of good ideas about what food to use. I would have liked to cook myself instead on a group basis. The soup did not have enough time to develop proper flavour

Amanda Krivograd Jun 2023

Wow, so much valuable information was passed on by an experienced educator!
Thank you Yoshiko these foods will now become a standard part of my diet.
I thought the class ran very smoothly with the help of Yoshiko’s tireless assistants.

Cooking class review by Amanda Krivograd - Sydney

Viv (Mum) Jun 2023

Really great class.
Very tasty and educational re learning about the medicinal food.

Might need to get pots with rubber handles/or mittens (my tea towel caught a light from the flame under the pot). Also duck tape to tape any cords to the ground (prevent people from tripping over)

Mathilda Lock Jun 2023

Learnt a lot from this class and developed my knowledge of Japanese health and cooking. Great chefs!

Dawdy Brown Jun 2023

Oiva makes the class fun and packs a lot into the 2 1/2 hours. You learn about the ingredients and best natural products to use. They are also available to buy along with her excellent vegan recipe book at the end of the lesson. It was hands on and great for a beginner like me to learn some of the basic techniques. Thanks Oiva

Booked in for the Japanese intensive course (beginner/intermediate together). It is a busy morning, but the health advice and explanation of Japanese food, condiments and how to cook them correctly was priceless. Yoshiko makes the class fun and keeps everyone busy with preparing the dishes. The recipes with additional measurements for bigger servings was awesome (family of 6) and will be well used. The class does not cook each dish one by one individually, you start by preparing and chopping all the ingredients for all recipes. We then cook all the bits and prepare each individual dish. It all comes together served as a beautiful bento box with yummy healthy miso soup and side of tempura. We made everything we ate and it was healthy and delicious. It was amazing how much we made! Yoshiko is a wealth of information about how best to cook ingredients whilst keeping the best health attributes and not lose precious vitamins and minerals. The class is engaging, fun and hands on and best of all you learn heaps! Can’t wait to go back for more.

Michelle Campbell May 2023

I loved this class. However, I think the venue was not ideal. It was dark ( and very atmospheric but it was not always possible to see what Yoshiko was doing. Also there were so many things going on that I could not process everything.It may have been easier if things were prepped so that we could concentrate on the so many valuable and interesting things Yoshiko was saying and doing.This is not to be lazy but I think this would work out better. Yoshiko is really experienced and it shows.

Victor Wang Mar 2023

- interesting session, lots of laughs
- hands on and involved

- mental math was required to adjust some of the recipes on the fly

Jemma Maddick Mar 2023

Very enjoyable and great food. Learnt some of the key Japanese recipes. Class was a good size

Neil Timson Feb 2023

The staff were great, the information was great

The venue was too small

Unlike every other cooking class I’ve done, we were not able to cook everything. The dish(es) we’re done by the chef by demonstration OR split between different people meaning each person/group did not have the experience of cooking or being involved in the cooking process. I walked away with only being involved in a very small part

Consider at a minimum allowing each table to prepare/cook ALL parts of the dish

Patrick Ward Feb 2023

Yoshiko is very energetic and welcoming, the recipes were delicious, it was an excellent afternoon out.

This class was a present for my husband's birthday because we're all lovers of Japanese cuisine. When I purchased it I thought it was going to be a more hands-on experience where you actually learn how to prepare each dish yourself, turns out most of the class was a demonstration. My husband enjoyed learning about new spices used in the Japanese kitchen and consuming all the prepared delicacies.

Mark Hartshorn Dec 2022

I had a great time at the Matcha Lovers cooking class last Saturday. Yoshiko is such an entertaining host with a wicked sense of humour, making the whole cooking experience really fun. I’ve never enjoyed being scolded about my poor cooking skills so much! Yoshiko’s extensive knowledge about quality ingredients is very impressive, and I appreciate her sharing her anecdotes and experiences with the class when we sat down to eat. I feel like I learnt a lot about nutrition in general in addition to the benefits of integrating matcha into my diet. I highly recommend joining one of Yoshiko’s classes and look forward to my next session with her team.

Catherine Adams Aug 2022

Great introduction to some key basics of Japanese cooking. The lesson was very informative, and covered a lot in a very short period of time. Lovely, experienced and knowledgeable teacher who made sure we were all involved, got hands on experience and had fun too. All equipment and food provided and we enjoyed eating all the beautiful dishes that we'd prepared at the end. Highly recommended.

Natalija Berjanovic Aug 2022

I wanted to do this class for a long time and loved that it’s finally available in my neighbourhood.

What we cooked was really taste and look forward to learning some more in another class

A wonderful class and opportunity to learn about all aspects of cooking for all experience levels! I'm all but new to the kitchen, but it was a wonderful chance to build ideas on confidence, buying ingredients, pairing nutrition and flavour and trying recipes of different levels of time and skill (I actually made the matcha coconut fudge yesterday and it was extremely quick and easy to do and I've never cooked anything outside of pasta and bacon!) The recipes are all vegan, but it doesn't deter from flavour or enjoyment for fellow non-vegans, and there's thorough explanations of ingredients and method that were wonderful to hear (I sadly used cows milk in my matcha, completely unaware that calcium nullifies most of the nutritional benefits :') Thank you so much Yoshiko

We loved the class with Yoshiko specially since my daughter who doesn’t like kale loved it! Highly recommend for those looking to learn the art of Japanese dumpling making in a light and relaxed environment. Yoshiko is knowledgeable and funny , she clearly has a passion for healthy cooking and passing on her skills to others. Would go back and do the other classes with her.

It was a fabulous session with Yoshiko and we had so much fun in a private class setting. She was fun, knowledgeable, precise and detail in conducting the cooking class with an efficient assistance.

I have gained much knowledge on Japanese cooking, method and the basic ingredients. Most satisfying of all, was that all our food are vegan, healthy and organic!

Yoshiko makes the class very engaging and fun. I got there with zero knowledge about how to cook a Japanese dish and finished the class with the necessary knowledge to make four different dishes! The venue is perfect for the class. I would absolutely recommend this class!

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.

John Kam Feb 2022

What was the teacher like?
Abusive, haha. No, seriously, she was entertaining.

How was the venue?
Not bad.

If materials were provided, did you like them?
I will print them out.

Was the class good value for money?
Not bad.

What did you do / learn?

Jennifer Jamieson Jan 2022

The class was fun and informative, the teacher was fun. I didn't realise that we were doing only plant-based sushi but enjoyed the food that we made. I recommend this class if you are interested in healthy eating.

Evangeline Lloyd Jan 2022

This is a group class and you are split into different groups that make each dish, so you don’t make everything. I would have loved for the class to be a bit more hands on as throughout the class, there is quite a bit of time where you are watching/waiting for others to cook. I think this class is best suited to absolute beginners in cooking ramen. However, the food was tasty and I love the takeaway notes. Thank you

Yasmin Newton Jan 2022

Really good class that gives a decent, basic understanding of a quick ramen process and ingredients.
Afternoon class was very ‘hands-on’ and a lot of fun.

Brianna Etwell Jan 2022

Great class, lots of variety and plenty to eat at the end. Yoshiko was a great teacher - very funny and entertaining

Maggie Price Jan 2022

Yoshiko is lots of fun and the class is fairly hands on with each table cooking one of the recipes and then we all got to share/eat the end result which was delicious. She shares some good tips about Japanese cooking and also healthy cooking ingredients. Well worth it and wonderful that it’s all vegan!

Anne Conduit Dec 2021

I did enjoy the class but felt as the only member joining after lunch I could have been welcomed
I was a few minutes late in a terrible storm on a rainy afternoon when they had canceled the Manly ferry

Emily Sudradjat Dec 2021

Class was great value for money - good balance of theory and practical aspects. Yoshiko was engaging and was a very fun experience. Highly recommend to everyone, as the smaller class allowed for more focus on the students. Great that it was suitable for vegetarians, and still tasty for the non-vegetarians.

Haley McCarthy Dec 2021

I completed the Japanese superfoods Gyoza and Sushi Intensive class. It was excellent.
Chef Yoshiko was so knowledgeable and instructs in an easy to learn manner, you can see her passion for the craft and sharing it with others.
Even as a chef myself I learnt a lot and really enjoyed the class, everything we made was delicious and you felt healthy consuming it.
The Matcha served with the meals was spectacular, easily the best Matcha I’ve ever consumed.
I love that Yoshiko sells the products utilised in the lesson, naturally I bought the Matcha to make at home.
Easy to follow recipes that I’ll enjoy making at home and at work.
100% worth booking a class and I would definitely return to attend other classes.

Julia Laverty Nov 2021

Teacher was lovely! Very knowledgeable about gut health and Japanese medicinal foods Venue great. A lot to eat. Would be handy to have all recipes as hand outs while cooking (rather than emailed after class) as difficult to remember

Cindy Hayes May 2021

Loved this class so much! Yoshiko is so engaging and the food was absolutely yummy and so healthy as well. I’m booking another class right away Thank you Yoshiko

Barbara Quinlan May 2021

The Japanese Superfoods as Medicine hands-on cooking class was a superb, excellent experience. Absolutely chaotic and abuzz with Yoshiko bustling around keeping us on track, yelling out the 'darling's and the 'bloody' this or thats. All came together remarkably with so many delightful dishes. And more: The teacher claimed she learnt English in restaurant kitchens - hence the language. However, her organisation skills with different tables being nominated to prepare various dishes, individuals co-opted for individual tasks, swaps made when necessary to have ingredients ready on time (I julienned Daikon for the ginger soup and squeezed out soaked shiitaki mushrooms - juice for the soup, mushrooms sliced by others for the cauliflower rice). Cooking was done by teams as well as plenary sessions where we all watched. She also had a team of assistants, not for teaching, but for such as carrying foods to various teams or carrying out Bento boxes, food dishes, sliced cauli leaves or Nori sheets that were taken over by tables for sprinkling over dishes. So many, many dishes, with many as small as a 2-3 shot glass! Yoshiko kept a sharp eye on everything and everyone - very impressive. The tastes were wonderful.

Julie Trell May 2021

Very fun cooking class. Yoshiko is funny and knows her stuff. The food was delicious and we learned a lot and I can’t wait to start cooking like that at home. I definitely felt like her food is delicious medicine. It was a lot of unique food and worth the price Bring some friends.

We made gyoza and Ramen throughout 2 different courses during the day.
Would definitely book a course with Yoshiko again in the future.

Lucinda Thompson Apr 2021

We had such a fun time at the ramen cooking class, Yoshiko was a great instructor and super knowledgeable, and the other teaching assistants were also lovely and helpful. Plus the food was incredible! Definitely recommend this class if you're interested in Japanese food and cooking methods, we had a fantastic experience.

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.

Cherie Parkes Mar 2021

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

The recipes for each dish will allow us to practice at home. A good introductory course to Japanese cooking.

The class is a group cooking class ie. you don't do every aspect of the cooking yourself, instead the work is divided among the group and everyone gets to be involved. The class is informative, helpful and yummy! Have since made the recipe at home and it turned out exactly as the class.

Jonathan Papworth Jan 2021

Yoshiko was engaging, and did so well to involve everyone. Had a great time!

Maybe clearly define what tables/teams cook which gyoza at the start to help with the flow of the class, but genuinely everything went fantastic

Luke Burlet Jan 2021

overall , great. very minor comment is that the making of soup was a bit too brief. but we can get from recipe supplied.

Karina Jones Dec 2020

Yoshiko was fantastic! Funny, informative and engaging. Highly recommend this class to anyone that wants to lean to make sushi.

Adele Querol Nov 2020

I highly recommend this Japanese Cooking Class (beginner)! The class breaks down some really useful basics - like how to cook rice properly, and how to make your own teriyaki sauce :) Yoshiko is a great instructor, creating a relaxed environment for learning as well as making cooking fun! If you're sitting on the fence about giving something like this a try, I am here to tell you - go for it! You won't have any regrets.

Minca Mellen Oct 2020

I really enjoyed the class, it was the first time I had done any Japanese cooking and I found that the instructions were clear and the class was well structured and easy to do. The food was delicious and the instructor provided many helpful tips and tricks for how to cook everything properly and authentically. The class also provided insight into more traditional Japanese ingredients and what to avoid in stores when cooking Japanese food at home. I would definitely recommend this class especially to those who enjoy cooking but don’t have experience in cooking Japanese cuisine or just want something new to try out when cooking at home.

James Ford Oct 2020

Yoshiko was a great teacher, along with showing us great meals, she provided very valuable advice on how to recreate the meals at home as well as giving us interesting history on Japanese cooking. Would recommend to all.

Libby Ellis Mar 2020

Thank you Yoshiko. This was a fun class and it was great to learn a couple of really good foundations. Just knowing how to do rice via absorption method was great! The second foundation I took away was dashi stock. And lastly, I learned that boiling certain things ruins them and this is where I have been going wrong with miso soup! The food was delicious. Yoshiko was fun. I think this class could benefit from 30 minutes more. Sometimes the information came so quickly, that I missed it which is a shame.

These ramen were very repeatable at home, without having to go too far to get the ingredients. It was the utmost pleasure to do this class! ありがとございます ☺

Great value for money and super informative! Yoshiko was very engaging, and taught us a lot about the health and benefits of all the ingredients we used which was super insightful.

Yoshiko the teacher really knows her food and her matcha. She gave us a good overview of the background of matcha. The whole cooking process was pretty fun, and we learnt what was important when it comes to using matcha to cook. We made soba in matcha dashi soup, matcha blancmange with adzuki beans, matcha mochi, matcha coconut fudge, and a Yuzu matcha mocktail. We finished every bit of the food that we made from scratch - very yummy! Environment was clean and pleasant, though I wished we could have a cooking station each so we could be more hands-on. Overall though, we absolutely had a lot of fun and would recommend it to people!

Yen Lam Jul 2019

All the staff and teacher was very helpful to assist, they made the day enjoyable for the kids. Even though they were reluctant to come because of their age but after coming my daughter loved it. My son just wanted to eat the sushi because he was hungry.

There was helpful hints that we didn't realise, for example the teacher said there is the rough side and smooth side of the Nori and which side is best to place the rice and the smoother side is for presentation.

The venue was big enough but hard to find parking.

The materials provide was not sufficient for 2 kids as I had to keeping asking for more rice and sesame.

The adult should be able to participate more and at the same time with the children for the price we paid for.

Overall 4 star for the course

The class was valuable in helping de-mystify the making of miso.

We attended Yoshiko’s family sushi making class and couldn’t have been happier with the experience. Yoshiko is a bubbly and enthusiastic teacher and makes sure every child gets involved. She had two lovely assistants to make sure the whole day ran smoothly. The ingredients were simple and delicious and the instructions were clear and easy to follow. We came home well and truly ready to make our own sushi. We would highly recommend this class to other families or as a special experience for a parent and child.

Yoshika is an informative, engaging teacher and Mia was wonderful keeping the class flowing. Would not hesitate to take another class with them!

Tony Jordan Apr 2019

Yoshiko is a very vibrant, knowledgeable and giving lady. Her style of teaching and encouraging participants is unique. Her recipes are easy to follow and she offers for sale key ingredients such would normally be hard to find.

Her assistant Maya is the absolute foundation for each class

The venue is acceptable but classes should be capped to many in a class means is harder to work safely.

Peta Denning Mar 2019

The Superfood Gyoza Cooking workshop was fun and informative.

I couldn't believe that you could cook so many different dishes in such a short time.

When I looked at the ingredients I wasn't sure that they would have much taste but they all tasted great and were very filling.

Yoshiko is a great teacher and she had us all engaged in the class at all times.

I would recommend the class to anyone that wants to learn more about healthy Japanese cooking or would just like a great time.

Michelle Marquet Feb 2019

My Sushi loving daughter and I enjoyed a most enjoyable day learning how to make authentic sushi with Yoshiko. The venue was clean and modern and the ingredients provided were fresh and healthy. Yoshiko was delightful, constantly involving the kids in all aspects of the sushi making process then in a nice touch, turning the tables and getting the kids to teach the adults what they had learnt. The end result some yummy sushi, and some great skills to take home and share with my daughter for years to come. Highly recommend.

Materials used were good clean and professional.
The class was worth the money.
I learnt a lot about digestive health which is the reason I attended.
Yoshiko class was very informative and I intend to do Class 2.

Learned lot of useful skills, just hope every student would have individual stove so that we can get our hands on from the beginning to the end, rather than each person only takes one part in the whole process.

Been looking forward to my second class and wasn't disappointed! Yoshiko delighted us with an array of dishes from salad dressing to ramen, dairy free blancmange and matcha green tea. A very interactive and informative session would highly recommend thank you Yoshiko and Maja.
