My husband and I loved making mochi with Miyuki. They may not have looked perfect but we achieved three different types during the class and they tasted delicious - just like we've had in Japanese restaurants! Miyuki was very patient and took us through step by step. I feel confident we can now make these on our own. Miyuki shared special cooking tips as well as information about Japanese life and culture, which we really enjoyed. I'm keen to try some of her other online classes and would love to do in-person classes when we can travel to Japan again.

What a special experience! I did this class with a couple close friends and my mom, who were all in different locations from me. We had such a good time together. Miyuki was so patient and such a great storyteller. We learned so much and I personally can’t wait to take another class with her. A really special and delicious way to spend an evening! Highly recommend!!!

Miyuki made the delicate mochi easy to make. I also learned a lot about the history and culture of Japan through this online experience. Dango and Daifuku came out delicious!

It was a lovely experience given the Covid situation and we could not travel. It felt nice to be able to learn something new and the class was definitely interactive. Would have preferred to learn from Miyuki-san in person but she gave us a lovely introduction to her studio and a nice view of the river online.

We really enjoyed Miyuki’s session. It was a lot of fun and we learned a lot of fun information about Japan and mochi. It was a great group activity for our family that is located in many different locations.
