My fiancée Riley and I had an incredible time cooking and learning from Chef Fumiko. The kitchen was great, she guided us really well through the menu, and offered helpful suggestions for how we can continue our learning with Japanese vegan cuisine. I also appreciated how Chef Fumiko made the experience accessible. I am hard of hearing and wear a hearing aid, so places with a lot of background noise, etc. can be difficult for me. It meant SO MUCH that Chef Fumiko had speakers set up around the kitchen and used a headset microphone. I didn't have to lean on Riley to repeat things I'd missed, so I got to really just enjoy the experience overall. Absolutely would recommend this experience for others!

We had a fantastic time in the Vegan Japanese cooking class with Chef Fumiko. She created an awesome experience with simple yet decadent dishes that we would be able to replicate after going home. We also really enjoyed her friendly and laid-back demeanor, as it made the class much more enjoyable. We would recommend her class to anyone!
13 Apr 2021
We were excited for the class although we didn’t know what to expect since it was our first time doing something like this. Chef Fumiko allowed us to really make our own meal with instructions on how to prep and measure the ingredients properly and was knowledge about the type of food we were preparing when we asked questions. She also took the time to get to know us and talk about herself and her culinary background. We couldn’t believe we actually made everything we ate and it was delicious! We would definitely do another class with Chef Fumiko in the future.

It was great to use authentic ingredients. I am not sure I learned any techniques as an intermediate cook
12 Mar 2023
Very fun and intimate experience! We met with a very experienced chef with tidbits of info and history about the dishes we were making. Only 6 people in the class so everyone talked to each other and had a good time together. We walked away with a lot of food too, even after eating all of our creations. We got to bring wine to enjoy while we cooked. All around a good experience.

Had a great time. Good food and great instruction. Thanks!

My partner and I had so much fun learning to make sushi with Chef Fumiko! Her kitchen has a really good vibe. She was a great teacher, fun, answered all of our questions, moved the class along at a good pace, and taught us history about sushi as well as common practice in various parts of Japan. 10/10 would recommend!
28 Feb 2023
Well prepared and willing to adapt to various cooking skills. Nice set up to make sure we can see and hear her.
27 Feb 2023
Chef Fumiko was amazing! I love the detail from the types of rice to the sushi vinegar and letting us taste the difference between store bought and homemade. Down to How much rice to use and what to do when it's too much. The stories she shared made the experience even better. Thank you for an amazing time.

Really delicious food!

We had a wonderful experience with Chef Fumiko. Her kitchen was fantastic and she was incredibly knowledgeable on all things sushi. In addition to learning how to cook/make sushi, we also learned about the history of sushi which I found very interesting. We highly recommend this experience!

20 Dec 2022
Perfect date for my wife and I! The class was intimate and Chef Fumiko made sure to answer all our questions along the way.
12 Dec 2022
First time doing a cooking class and we LOVED it. Chef Fumiko was great - was very hands on to making sure we were successful and provided a wealth of knowledge (both cooking tips + history on what we were making). 10/10 will repeat.
04 Dec 2022
My friends and I had a lovely night with Fumiko preparing the 5-course Japanese dinner. The food that we made was excellent, however, I don't feel like Fumiko spent much time teaching - she briefly explained the ingredients, passed them to us with the recipe, and we were off and running on our own. While the food & cooking experience were fun, clean, and tasty, I was hoping for more takeaways from this class.
07 Nov 2022
Fantastic experience! Informative, engaging, and delicious. Not only was it a good class but I feel very comfortable replicating the recipe at home with my new knowledge.
15 Oct 2022

Chef Fumiko was so welcoming, knowledgeable, and fun! We will definitely be making bao buns and gyoza at home from now on. Her patience and ability to answer questions made our experience enjoyable.
10 Jul 2022
Great class. I liked that the chef personalized the class. She had a very sensible way of explaining things. The kitchen itself is super cute, and the chef had complimentary tea ready for us when we got there. Nice touch.
28 Jun 2022
Absolutely the kindest host, ever! She was so patient with the students and when I messaged concerned about the heat and being 38 weeks pregnant, she ensured that the AC unit was working and accessible. The food made was delightful with great flavor and you definitely make enough for leftovers!!
15 Jun 2022
Fun evening and the food was DELICIOUS!! Chef Fumiko was a wonderful teacher and a gracious host.

16 Apr 2022
Chef Fumiko did an outstanding job teaching us how to make delicious Steamed Buns and Potstickers. She gave us really great instructions on how to portion our fillings and the pleating/pinching method. By the end of class, I felt pretty successful with both the Steamed Buns and the Potstickers. While we were enjoying eating our delicious creations, she gave us some history about both and different flavor varieties we could make. I definitely recommend this class.
14 Apr 2022
Really fun! Great tips and advice. Really delicious yet easier meals that we can use weekly in our meal plan. Awesome sauces. And thank you for the herbs!
04 Apr 2022
Cooking and learning from Chef Fumiko was a pleasant experience! She was very accommodating as I was vegetarian and my partner was not. She had lots of both options available. Her recipe for buns were AMAZING! And her technique for dumplings was so smart and something I would have never thought. Definitely recommend taking this class or any of hers!
25 Feb 2022
Our Korean cooking class was wonderful. We learned so much, and really liked eating our delicious meal. It was such an enjoyable way to learn new skills. Thank you Fumiko!

Chef Fumiko is a great teacher and we genuinely enjoyed the class. We got to make 3 different rolls and then enjoy eating them with Miso soup while Chef told us about the history of sushi. Highly recommend this class and instructor. Chef Fumiko even went the extra step to accommodate me as a vegetarian which I really appreciated. :)

23 Mar 2021
Our group had a wonderful time making sushi with Chef Kumiko! Covid has obviously made doing group activities difficult and we were originally planned to do ours in January 2021. We felt uncomfortable with all the restrictions and Chef Fumiko was soooo accommodating to ensure we could make the best of the situation. We learned a lot about the proper methods to making authentic sushi, where we should get fish locally, and preferred ways of rolling and mixing ingredients. We look forward to trying again our on own using her guidance and techniques!
25 Feb 2021
We had a wonderful time learning with Chef Fumiko. Her kitchen was beautiful and clean, she was very knowledgeable and polite, letting us learn at our speed while giving us a very fun experience. I'd highly recommend this class to others and look forward to my next class with her.

Fumiko provided us with a fun, informative, and relaxed environment for our first sushi-making experience. This class was a great date night, and Fumiko went above and beyond in her flexibility, answering questions, and giving us some fun ideas to try at home. We highly recommend taking a class with her, and hope we can take another class with Fumiko in the future!

Chef Fumiko was wonderful. She was well-prepared, and it was obvious she knew what she was doing. And I made a real sushi!
28 Jan 2019
Chef Fumiko was extremely knowledgeable and sweet. This was a wonderful date night. I especially loved how she found ways to still teach us certain aspects of cooking while finding ways to save time so I still felt like I properly learned the whole process, even though she did some of the prep work.
07 Jan 2019
Amazing time and experience!! Had a blast and so worth it!

04 Mar 2017
We booked Chef Funiko's sushi making class in Seattle and LOVED it! Best cooking class ever!
30 Jan 2017
Chef Fumiko was obviously an expert on the subject of sushi and related Japanese style food (she made a tasty miso soup from scratch while we were there). She was well prepared for the class and provided extensive notes regarding materials, procedures, recipes, and details about various items used (or that could be used) in making sushi roles. It was a fun 'hands on' class. The best was enjoying the results of our labors at the end! We are inspired to make our own sushi at home. My hat's off to this chef!
26 Jan 2017
I had the opportunity to learn to make basic sushi rolls with Chef Fumiko. It was a great experience! Exactly what I wanted, a small scale class, hands-on learning, and a dynamic teacher. I have recommended this class to a couple co-workers and many of my friends.
26 Jan 2017
Very informative. Enjoyed the intimate atmosphere. Very good food. Can't wait to use the recipes again.
17 Dec 2016
We booked Chef Fumiko's sushi making class at our home in Seattle and LOVED it. She is super nice and the class is a lot of fun. Highly recommended to anyone who liked good food and wants to learn a few new techniques. Also, I'm thinking of booking them for our next corporate team building event. So glad that Cozymeal is finally also in Seattle.
17 Nov 2016
Chef Fumiko's noodle class was extremely fun and informational! I plan on taking another one of her classes in the future.
25 Jul 2016
Chef Fumiko is 100% Japanese and it shows in her every movement. Her simple grace and hospitality, her humble style and her delicious cuisine. Her sauces are so simple and yet they turn a few ingredients into an incredibly tasty dish. She is the real thing. Loved this class. Highly recommended.

This was a pleasure experience having the sushi class with Fumiko. Fumiko is kind and well prepared for the lesson. I have learnt the technique in making traditional Japanese sushi rolls without difficulty. I believe everyone will love the lesson just like me. Enjoy!!
23 May 2017
It was a great teaching, learning experience. We learned how to make sushi! What could be better? We also got to eat our own creations! Fumiko was extremely welcoming and helpful in making us feel at ease in her kitchen. We learned "the tricks of the trade," that had us making sushi in a few minutes. I would heartily recommend this experience to anyone who wants to know about sushi and how to prepare it. Thanks you Fumiko,for the adventure!
