I loved the teaching style, the food that we made was amazing and the ingredients quality was very good. I definitely recommend this class.

G2018JUcarolinel . Jan 2021

This class was extremely well organised and the communication after initial booking was very informative. Chef Dylan was very accomplished, friendly and welcoming. The produce supplied was really fresh and the food we made was delicious! I now have the confidence to attempt some Japanese food at home. Thank you for an excellent experience.

KSMJ . Jan 2021

I attended the Japanese Cooking Masterclass at Otao Kitchen as a single participant and found the experience to be very enjoyable.

The class time took approximately 3 hours and working in pairs, we prepared Makizushi-sushi rolls, okonomiyaki and ramen noodles. We then enjoyed eating what we ate with a drink.

The instructor, Chef Dylan was very knowledgeable and ran a good class. I feel confident that I will be able to recreate the dishes prepared during the class in my own kitchen. I definitely plan to attend another class in the future at Otao kitchen.
