Recent Reviews from Our Guests

"We felt like a special guest when we arrive to the place. They were outstanding hosts. We received all the detailed information about the preparation. Of course, the food was so delicious! We usually take cooking classes when we travel and this one was one of the best!"

"The healthy rice sushi experience was one to not just remember but to carry in our hearts as we didn’t just experience 2 welcoming chefs but also 2 friendly, warm and open Japanese women who showed us their culture in their lovely home. They have the professional experience to teach you many dimensions of the sushi making (from history, to all the varieties to the preparing and some tips how to eat it for maximum taste with every bite). They master English in a way that I didn’t hear in any other place during our 2 week stay (their foreign partners and living abroad are the source for this I assume)."

"The instructor was creative, patient, kind, accommodating and vey hospitable! As I am vegan and would prefer gluten free, she decided to make what I can eat 100% buckwheat soba noodles. Though it was challenging, she made it with me. It was absolutely delicious and a great experience!"
