We really enjoyed our class - we wanted to learn some simple healthy recipes to prep for weekday lunches and that's exactly what we learned. Going to the grocery store together was really useful too. Thank you for a really lovely morning!

Yuka was great, very knowledgeable and full of good tips! For us, going to the supermaket, learning all the steps of some Japanese cooking was very interesting. The class is very informative.
