Book Your Class


My children both attended your Bento cooking class today. Just letting you know that they both enjoyed the cooking class and learnt so much! They both want to do more cooking next school holidays. They came back home and ate up everything they made as it was delicious. I tried some of the food and it was very tasty.
Thank you for giving them such an enjoyable and wonderful cooking experience. Everyone there was so patient and friendly. We hope you continue to run more of these cooking classes with different cuisines.
