An incredible experience - food was literally 10/10



13 Jan 2023

Chef Ricky does an great job of not only creating an amazing experience with high quality delicious food, but also explaining the history of sushi. I have done a lot of cooking classes and this was by far the best experience I have ever had. I could not recommend this class or Chef Ricky enough!

Chef Ricky not only knows how to craft an exceptional Omakase style meal, but he does a great job of explaining the history of Sushi in Japan, and the changes that America has brought to Japanese cuisine. We not only made an awesome meal, but left with a better understanding of the history behind Sushi as well. His home is beautiful, and it truly was a fantastic experience for us. We have done CozyMeals in the past and Chef Ricky ranks among the top chefs we have had the pleasure to learn from. 10/10!
