Our latest review


Absolutely brilliant evening making sushi, learning about Japan and it's cuisine, meeting new people and getting to know the lovely Hiroko and her food philosophy. I would highly recommend these classes to anyone interested in Japanese cooking. I learned so much and feel really excited about my new personal Japanese culinary adventure!

Fantastic, fun evening, perfect for a hen party to get everybody involved. Took away skills that I can hopefully use in the future and memories that will last! Thank you so much for your hospitality Hiroko.

We highly recommend this - Hiroko is a friendly and talented teacher. The ingredients were all high quality and the food we made together was absolutely delicious. Now to make it at home……

This was my second class with Hiroko from Japanese ideas and as the first time I thoroughly enjoyed the class and so did my partner. Hiroko is really knowledgeable about the food and methodology behind the food and cooking. When we arrived we were welcome with Japanese tea while looking at the soothing Japanese garden. We also discussed the recipes we had chosen before preparing them. Hiroko is extremely well organised and patient! She explained several times how to use a knife to slice finely vegetables. However, no matter your skill level in cooking you will be able to participate.

We enjoyed eating the 4 dishes we cooked and sat down at a beautifully dressed table with gorgeous Japanese bowls. A real treat!

So, all in all we really enjoyed the experience and I will most definitely beheading back for round three at some point soon.
