Reviewed by Vasilios S. on 1/6/2018
Loved what I saw and learned. Could have been a bit more brisk in pace to learn and/or practice more. Two points about the order and layout of the class. By the time we were able to enjoy what we made, the rice had already started to dry out and I did not enjoy eating it. And, if I would have sampled my first roll before moving on to making the inside out roll, I would have used far less rice. I got a thumbs up from Jason, but both rolls had way too much rice. Lastly, I felt that we quickly ran out of the really good ingredients: spicy tuna, salmon and radish. Vasilios Smith
