I had for the first time the opportunity to learn how to make sushi and chef Gilzel with all patience and delicacy taught me important techniques for beginners in how to prepare sophisticated sushi dishes. I already have 2 more classes with her and I can't wait for it, I highly recommend it, she is amazing ?!!

Chef Gilzel was great, we took the beginners sushi class not knowing anything about making sushi, and Chef Gilzel was great with showing us how to make sushi and also helping us feel comfortable it was a lot of fun
