We loved the experience, and Chef Shinya! The food was delicious, was beautifully presented, and we enjoyed hearing cooking and restaurant tips/stories from the chef.

Exactly what we hoped it would be: great food, conversation, tips for making sushi at home/techniques we didn't otherwise have hands on practices with and thoughtful preparation (food safety, etc.) Highly recommend classes with Chef Shinya.

Chef Shinya was fun and educational. He opens up his home for an intimate cooking and learning experience. I learned a lot about the dishes we were making and he made it seem so simple. I learned a lot about cooking oils and the expeditious way to cook my galbi tang! I really didn't know what to experience but so glad I did and my friends joined! Thank you!
