Chef Ivan, Thank you for reaching out to me. I was going to write you because The Chef was amazing and we had a great time learning how to make Sushi. We learned 4 different types of sushi and after we create our own sushi. We made miso soup and finally we made Macha ice cream. It was a top experience for us not only we learned how to make sushi we had sake and met wonderful people that we shared laughs throughout the night. If I could give stars I will give 5 star ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️. I already recommended this cooking lesson to friends and family and I will continue doing it. Please tell the Chef to continue sharing his pasión and kindness. You are an Exceptional Chef. Thank you again for unforgettable night in your kitchen! Best, Leslie Vaculin

My roommate and I had the best time during the Elevated Bento Box cooking class with Chef Nori. She Chef Nori is extremely knowledgable in her craft and left us with easy tips&tricks to use in the kitchen. The menu was divine and quality was unmatched. I definitely recommend attending this workshop.
