We thoroughly enjoyed our Festival of Japanese Street Fare class with Chefs Michi and Vivian yesterday! They were both so friendly and informative and we did learn some fantastic tips. I never did get the opportunity to photograph our end result because the rest of the family dove on it and it was GONE! haha Absolutely delicious. Both chefs were so helpful and carefully answered all questions. We will definitely be taking additional classes and most certainly looking for additional classes with Chefs Michi and Vivian, including in person classes once you are in Tampa! Thanks so much and your customer service and follow up is spectacular. :-)

Vivian and Michi were so kind, patient, and helped us to make a delicious dinner together to celebrate Mother's Day! They taught us about the cooking process and new techniques. I have an upcoming trip to Japan and they had many suggestions for what to do. Thank you, Vivian and Michi!

This was such a wonderful experience. Chef Vivian and Michi are such a wonderful couple with a life time of great stories. The food my girlfriend and I learned how to make was delicious and filling. We still talk about how great of an experience it was. Chef Vivian and Michi were great teachers, because of them we feel comfortable making these dishes on our own. I highly recommend them if you’re looking for a great experience you’ll never forget.
