What a WONDERFUL experience. Chef Alejandro is such a good and patient teacher, teaches not just technique but respect for the process of creating sushi. I just loved his class, and the resulting sushi. Besides the teaching and learning, he also made the experience fun and memorable for our group. Our friends who live here in Chicago will be recommending this experience to others. What a lovely and memorable and yummy experience. HIGHLY recommend.

Thank you so much Chef Alejandro! The class was fun and informative, the ingredients were fresh, and the space was absolutely spotless. Chef did a fantastic job of teaching us and letting us venture out on our own. We will absolutely be trying something like this again, and I highly recommend Chef Alejandro!
