The class is very fun! No need for prior experience needed. I took the bento class, and I learned many techniques on making Japanese food like sushi roll, tempura, dashi stock, and more! Eating all of it at the end was very pleasurable as well. Plus, meeting other participants (from all over the world!) was very nice. I definitely recommend taking a class here!
