I took the Japanese Ramen and Gyoza class and it was so much fun! I learned so many tips and tricks that I would've never thought about and while I'm not a frequent cook, the way things were simplified and made accessible definitely has encouraged me to try the gyoza recipe at home. I will be attending more classes in the future.

Had a great time learning and cooking with my fiance. Everything was easy to understand, fun, and tasted delicious! I felt like there was a lot of value and I didn't have to go into the city for a fun cooking experience. We expect to be back and look forward to cooking here again!
