Chef Kumi was very nice and welcoming. She was flexible and patient when I was having trouble. She explained things very well. The recipe was delicious!

Another great class from Chef Kumi! The karaage turned out perfectly and the marinade so flavorful. We'll definitely be making that salad dressing again and again. She's right, it's so much better than store bought and super easy!
