      What a wonderful cooking course! The great thing about Rany is that she makes sure you understand so when you go home you can really make these authentic dishes. I loved her approach and her honesty. The food was delicious and an extra bonus is that you get to purchase all the asian products right there and then! I am already looking for the next course to book at Umami Food Studio! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

      Hello Robyn, thank you for your review. Pray that you cook all the salads until you can do that with your eyes closed then meet you again for another exciting course!
