The area
Address
Neighborhood: City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighborhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighborhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.

Amazing katsudon class with Hitomi!
Jan 2020
We loved learning katsudon and side dishes with Hitomi, It was a really intimate and relaxed lesson and it felt like we were learning from an old friend. Hitomi's lesson was well-paced, easy to follow and the food was delicious! It was interesting learning about Japanese culture from her and lots of interesting tips that will make Japanese cooking in general much easier. Thank you for a great lesson, we'll be back!

Incredible vegan sushi course!
Jan 2020
Had the most incredible time learning to make vegan sushi with Izi! She was a lovely instructor and full of knowledge. We were offered drinks throughout, and a brilliant goody bag to take home. Easily the best sushi I've ever tasted, and can't wait to do it at home. I will absolutely be back to learn more! Highly recommend the whole experience.

Wow!

We were lucky enough to attend the vegan sushi making class with just two of us on a Saturday at 11-2, a perfect time for eating the results of our labours with an included drink/beer afterwards. And the class was instructive, fascinating and fun. We're just upset we didn't think to bring the kids.

Great class and amazing teacher!
Nov 2018 • Couples
Myself and my other half attended the sushi masterclass as a birthday present. Yuka could not have made everyone feel more welcome, really engaging whilst teaching and very funny and cheeky too! She gave everyone in the group support and came around chatting to us while we tried out several creations which we then had with a beer. She is very charming, interesting, knowledgable and warm - you will love meeting her! Highly recommended. Enjoy :)

As a beginner, I found the class to be as enjoyable as it was beneficial. The instructor was welcoming and was able to break down the process of making sushi into simple steps. I highly recommend this class for really anyone to enjoy!

Excellent Experience!
Jul 2018 • Friends
I can not recommend this sushi making class enough. I purchased two places as a gift for my brother’s 30th birthday.
Upon arrival we were greeted, invited to wash our hands and select a preparation space.
Yuka welcomed ourselves and the other ten individuals and explained a little about her experience and qualifications. She was extremely warm and knowledgable.
After discussing with us how best to prepare sushi rice on different types of stove, Yuka demonstrated how to prepare hoso-maki. We were then at our own stations with Yuka and her assistant circling the class offering help where needed. Yuka then demonstrated how to prepare both the California roll and giant sushi roll. Yuka accepted any questions we had at any point. Finally Yuka demonstrated cutting of the rolls and we were then all invited to select a drink of our choice with our meal, including various soft drinks, wine, beer and sake. Both still and sparkling water were provided throughout. As we are and chatted Yuka provided some very high quality ginger, soy sauce and wasabi.
Finally we said goodbye. Yuka could not have been more informative and friendly. She gave prizes of introductory sushi sets and sent all recipes to us via email. I would recommend this activity to anyone interested in learning how to prepare sushi, but also anyone looking for a fun social evening!
Thank-you again to the Sozai Cooking School for making my brother’s 30th extra special!

2 Hour Ramen Class - Instructed by Akemi Yokoyama
May 2018 • Solo
The class was very welcoming and suitable for all cooking ability levels. It was amazing that we could cook all the elements of ramen in just two hours. Everything was clearly explained and the extra information about the culture and varieties of ramen was interesting. Of course, the meal at the end was delicious and I feel able to replicate it at home.

Yuka's sushi master class was an amazing experience!
Mar 2018 • Friends
The class was very enjoyable and fun! Yuka is so engaging and really makes cooking fun. What I really liked was the fact that she didn't provide a recipe during the class which really made us focus on her and listen to her instructions rather than get distracted by reading the recipe. She encourages everyone which was really helpful for me because it pushed me to keep trying even if I thought I wasn't doing it right. At the end of the session there were complimentary drinks such as a Japanese rice wine called Sake, beer, wine and some soft drinks too! I will definitely be going again it was an amazing experience.

YUKA's SUSHI MASTER CLASS IS AMAZING
Mar 2018 • Solo
Very informative class with all basic steps you need to start your sushi making journey. You'll make enough sushi to eat and take home. I left feeling confident for a first dinner as a sushi cook.

2 hour sushi master class- AMAZING.
Feb 2018 • Couples
The evening sushi class was so much fun. Yuka is so charming and engaging. She makes you feel so at-ease making sushi, and she has a laugh with you. By the end you really can make 4 types of sushi with confidence, I wouldn’t have to watch a YouTube now! You make enough for dinner that night and lunch the next day! It’s so yummy. We met some lovely people on our table and all had a laugh. I want to another class again now!
