From the get-go Hiroko made us feel very welcome and we had a great time learning to make some delicious and authentic Japanese dishes. We left feeling very full and confident that we could recreate them at home. Overall a really fun experience and a fantastic day.

I had a very enjoyable session with 2 friends and Hiroko learning how to cook, and helping to do the cooking of, our very tasty Japanese lunch. Hiroko was very friendly and explained and demonstrated at just the right level for me. I not only feel that I could cook the meal again but also learned a number of useful tips for all my cooking. E.G. The different types of rice and how to cook it properly. I'm so glad I had this lovely experience.

We had a lovely time at Hiroko's dinner party class. She is a great teacher, very organised and patient. Her class really gives a taste of traditional home cooked Japanese food, which you can then recreate at home since Hiroko provides the exact recipes. Experience highly recommended!

My husband and I spent a lovely morning with Hiroko learning how to make sushi and we came away full of ideas, full from our beautiful lunch and with plenty to share later for dinner. Hiroko was very knowledgeable and had preprinted the recipes for us so we didn't have to spend time making lots of notes.
