    Paula was a lovely and very knowledgeable host...Paula was a great teacher and taught us a lot not only about the food we made, but also about wine, Goa, and Portuguese cooking as a whole... Would definitely book again when family comes to visit.

    Satoru is a gem of a human being and a cooking lesson with him should be on everyone's Tokyo trip itinerary. He made everything easy, enjoyable, and most importantly, delicious! We learned so much and will book another class when we return to Japan.

    ...This was more than a cooking class, and we can’t recommend this experience highly enough!...It was like visiting with family on a Sunday afternoon, and spending time cooking together. We arrived as strangers and left as new-found friends. Thanks again for your warm welcome, friendship and fun afternoon, Carol and Paulo.
