You and your colleagues will finish the class with vegan panna cotta topped with matcha syrup and red bean paste.

We had a great time! The experienced cooks learned some new tricks, and the new cooks got involved as well!

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!
