Maybe date nights will include home made sushi nights from now on ;) Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts! Jamie and Mark

I fell in love with Korean food after traveling to Korea last month. These days, there are many Korean restaurants in Calgary, so I wanted to learn Korean food, after search, I found out about cooking class in Calgary, and I got to know chef Paul who is Korean. Also Chef Paul is managing a take out restaurant, so I think he knows more about trends of korean food than anyone else, and I learned a lot about Korean food in cooking class. I am so happy to think that I will call my friends in this week to cook the food that I learned after cooking class. If you are looking for a Korean chef in Calgary, I recommend chef Paul without hesitation.

We learned sushi happily through Chef Kang for the first time. we always went to the restaurant to eat sushi, but it was hard to find a delicious restaurant. Among them, the place where Koreans do it was delicious, so I decided to have a fun time because I thought it would be nice to learn sushi from a Korean chef. Especially, Chef Kang is from Culinary art, and he has various knowledge about cooking, so he explained it easily, especially since he currently runs a sushi restaurant, he knows about sushi better than anyone else and explained it easily to new learners. Now, we are going to make sushi in the kitchen, not in the restaurant with my wife, and invite my friends to dinner. Thank you again and I would like to apply again soon to learn more advanced courses, not beginner courses. I strongly recommend it to those who are interested in sushi.
27 May 2022
Chef Paul is a very talented sushi chef and restaurant owner. Sushi is something I really enjoy. Chef Paul showed me how to make a sashimi dish. I love learning about dishes I love and how to recreate them at home. If you are a sushi lover too I recommend Chef Paul!
