Emi was such a lovely person. She gives us a unique experience about the Japanese kitchen at her place. You can choose different dishes and get a nice hand-out with a overview of the Japanese ingredients with all recipes. Strongly recommended.

Emi offered a fun and instructive cooking class. We did simple but really really good recipes, the whole family had something to prepare and we actually learned a lot ( our kids are 6 and 8). We highly recommend it.
