Our private class (Oyakodon) with Chef Kumi was amazing! Chef Kumi is so knowledgeable and the pace of the class was perfect. The whole family (of 8) was able to participate in different steps, and the meal was delicious! Thank you Chef Kumi!

I've had Oyakodonbori in restaurants and made by my Japanese mom and I was THRILLED to make one even better. Chef Kumi is easy to follow and the recipe is so simple. It's true Japanese home cooking. My 8 year old son also loved the Oyakodon. Highly recommend her classes.
