Chef Rodney was incredible. The penultimate professional, he helped guide my wife and I through an incredible meal. I can’t wait to connect with Chef Rodney again.

Outstanding experience! Who knew we would get a first class sushi experience, along with a comedy routine AND some great life coaching? Chef Rodney was effortless in guiding our class, while being witty and engaging the entire time. Everything he had us prepare was delicious. I cannot recommend this experience enough. To cement the training, we did it all again last night on our own, and it turned out great. Thank you so much, Chef Rodney!
