Join Chef Rodney for a Japanese culinary adventure that is all about sushi — and more!
If you love sushi, this is a class that is designed with you in mind.
Chef Rodney is ready to showcase sushi in a simple manner that makes it easy to understand. Preparing sushi may seem like a daunting task, but that does not have to be the case. The simplicity of sushi is possible when you learn the proper techniques just like a true sushi chef. What kind of sushi rolls can you expect to create? Spicy tuna, smoked salmon, fried shrimp tempura, and more! It's sushi made simple.
Guests are welcome to bring wine and beer to enjoy during the class.
We had a great time with Chef Rodney. The food was great and we learned a lot in a relaxed setting. Fun family outing.

Rodney provided the perfect setting for my wife's surprise birthday gift. From the moment that he was waiting outside to help us find his apartment to the moment we were leaving with our newfound skill he was a wonderful and warm host. I highly recommend Chef Rodney to anyone who wants a fun evening full of laughter, learning, and lots of good food!

Chef Rodney was absolutely incredible. I bought this as an experience for my boyfriend and I and he was so friendly and accommodating in helping us learn everything. He let us be hands on with everything and the food was incredible. I definitely recommend booking this sushi experience and it really can be as simple as he says! Thank you again Chef Rodney! We had the most amazing time.

Chef Rodney was perfect. If you love to learn new things about cooking ... and want to be able to also do them in your home not some fancy gourmet kitchen he is the man to show you.
Great conversation and helpful tips in a relaxed and enjoyable environment.
He is a must book !

Chef Rodney was great but for 400 bucks I was expecting a large kitchen and Paired wine options. This is just based on previous experiences. I understand it is in the chef’s home but upon arriving I found it difficult to find the apartment. The cooking environment was distracting with outside noises.

Rodney was amazing. He’s very personable and the food he cooked was an 11/10. I would hire him in a heartbeat again. Thanks Rodney!

It was so much fun. It's like having a good friend invite you over for dinner, but teach you how to cook in the process. It's really neat that he can turn his home into a teaching environment, but make it seem like a dinner party at the same time.

For Chinese it's a wonderful experience to know how to cook in western style especially French or Italian. The two children are very excited too. We enjoy the meal very much.

Thank you, Chef Rodney! We had a wonderful time chatting, cooking, drinking and learning. Rodney is super hospitable and super knowledgeable when it comes to his craft. We learned some great tips, which will find their way into our home-cooking repertoire and unleashed at the next dinner party. All in all, it was a wonderful evening and a terrific value.

I couldn’t have asked for a more special or intimate way to celebrate a birthday or any other occasion for that matter! Chef Rodney is truly gifted and I loved every aspect of sharing his home and kitchen!! He was patient, informative, and very engaging as we went through each entree. I learned some new techniques and actually left feeling like every penny spent was worth it and then some! Please don’t hesitate to seek his services for large or small events because the quality, food, service, and personality is top notch!!

Chef Rodney was so fun!! We had a great time. My only complaint is Chef did not get notice there were 2 additional people so we had 4 people on 2 portions of food and still had to pay for 4 people. Outside of that, it was fun.
