We had a wonderful time at the Elevated Bento Box class. Chef Dona made the experience enriching and fun - she is a delight! Our meal was delicious! We would definitely try another class.

My roommate and I had the best time during the Elevated Bento Box cooking class with Chef Nori. She Chef Nori is extremely knowledgable in her craft and left us with easy tips&tricks to use in the kitchen. The menu was divine and quality was unmatched. I definitely recommend attending this workshop.
