The cooking class with Chef Shinya was excellent! His explanations were very thorough and easy to follow. The food was delicious, and the cultural background he gave on udon and its many varieties was great. After Shinya's cooking class I feel like I can add homemade udon into my regular rotation of dinner recipes. It was a really fun night, and I would highly recommend his classes!

Great class! This was my first time taking a cooking class and it did not disappoint. I learned a lot and the end result was the best Ramen I’ve ever had! Thank you Chef Shinya.
