Melissa was very welcoming and informative. She makes sushi making look easy and gave many great insights on how to do it at home. The class was filled with laughter and good food. I highly recommend.

Melissa provides an amazing, unique, super fun experience. She makes you feel so comfortable and at home right when you walk in her door. She has an incredibly impressive background and so much knowledge to share — and she makes the evening so fun, informal, and informative. The food was delicious, and Melissa’s energy and enthusiasm was even better. Can’t recommend this experience enough!!

Chef Melissa was FANTASTIC! She went above and beyond to ensure that my girlfriend and I had a great time. She is very funny and personable. She gave clear instructions on how to make the sushi so it was easy to do. We had a great time and would definitely take another class from her. She had a nice cozy apartment and the spice game at the end was a nice way to end the class! 5/5 highly recommend!!
