Chef Ryan kindly greeted us at his apartment... Everything was all set up and ready to go! He patiently walked us through each recipe and was super informative about all the ingredients and preparation. My mom and I enjoyed every second. We loved the unique flavors that Chef Ryan used and how he incorporates his own self expression into his dishes. A true artist! I would highly recommend this class.

Me and my husband had a great time cooking Filipino food with Chef Ryan. For dessert we made a cheesecake and it was delicious. We took leftovers home and finished it all the next day. We’ll def be back for Chef Ryan’s sushi class. Highly recommend!

We did a 7-person team building sushi making class. The food was delicious and very filling - we were all stuffed until the next day! We had a great time chatting with Chef Ryan, who explained each dish, the ingredients, and how to make it like a pro.
