We booked Chef Elham’s sushi class to celebrate a birthday and had an excellent time. Initially our group was a little reserved at the start, but Chef Elham made us feel super comfortable in no time. All of the ingredients were prepared ahead of time and she made the experience of making sushi not intimidating at all. Additionally, everyone in our group was stuffed by the amount of food we made and ate. I would recommend this class for any group of friends and look forward to taking other classes by Chef Elham in the future!

My family really enjoyed our sushi making class with Chef Elham. This was our first experience with a cooking class and making sushi. Her choices of ingredients were perfect for us. She was well prepared. She was patient and easy going. Her directions were clear and we learned many new cooking skills. We all feel that we can make sushi on our own now.
We will book another class with her in the near future. .

Chef Elham and her team were great! My team enjoyed making the sushi rolls and nigiris. The set up was very clean and organized and the ingredients were all fresh. The nigiris and sushi rolls were delicious. Love how easy it was to work with Chef Elham. She was very responsive and was able to accommodate with some of our team members dietary restrictions.

We loved the cozy aspect of being welcomed into Chef Elham’s home! She was super knowledgeable, friendly, and created an open environment for everyone to ask questions. The way she taught made it feel so attainable for us to make sushi at home now!

She got the best quality sushi, it was the best salmon we’d ever had!

10/10 recommend her classes.
