He had thoughtful, detailed answers to all of our questions, even things that may have seemed trivial like details on the cookware and which brands to use for the ingredients. And the end product was fantastic! We will definitely be looking into taking additional classes with him.

Even before we started our in-person ramen experience, Chef Shinya was very timely and helpful in providing information upon request. We wanted to make the most out of the 3-hr session and was able to prepare by watching a few short, but notable documentaries on the history of ramen. On the day of the cooking class, we showed up at Chef Shinya's home and everything was nicely prepared in advance (e.g. having both fresh chasu / pork to prepare in person but also some ready made for consumption due to the time it takes to marinate appropriately). Me and my SO were the only two guests, and he explained each step of the process very clearly, from making Ajitsuke Tamago to all the ins and outs of using the optimal ramen noodle and creating the soup base (we had Tokyo style ramen), I came away from the session with a much deeper perspective about the art of ramen. I will never see another bowl of ramen in the same light! When we were able to finally enjoy the ramen towards the end of the session, Chef Shinya set up a nice ambience for me and my SO and gave us additional Chasu pork to enjoy. Would highly recommend this session to anyone looking to better understand ramen!

This was my wife and I’s first cooking class. It was easy to follow along and Chef Shinya was an excellent teacher. He made learning fun and memorable. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone.
