I bought my husband a voucher for one of Kei’s cookery classes as he loves to cook, and the rest of the family ended up joining us. Kei’s warm hospitality, knowledge and expertise were quickly put to use in persuading our three teenage children to start chopping and preparing vegetables Japanese-style.
We all loved the home-made Teriyaki Sauce , and the youngest said the Chicken Teriyaki was the best dish he had ever eaten (we are hopeful he might make this at home).
Great fun was had by all in trying to seal the Gyoza dumplings with varying results in looks but not in taste . We will definitely try making these again.
Thanks for the great evening Kei.

I attended Kei’s cookery class, not knowing what to expect. She has an amazing passionate approach to her teaching. She has a wealth of creative recipes many of which would only be found in top restaurants.
My day spent with Kei has enthused me to experiment with Japanese and Oriental cuisine.
I can not recommend Kei highly enough!
Jeannette Whitehouse, Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire
Our family was introduced to Kei about a year ago by some friends of ours. We were looking for someone who would prepare and deliver sushi to our home. Since then, Kei has provided us with meal after meal of incredible, restaurant quality sushi that our family and friends absolutely love. It’s so good that we’ve stopped dining out for sushi and simply call Kei. Her sense of service and quality is unmatched and, to top it all off, she’s an incredible person.
I don’t know what we would do without Kei and we thank our friends every time we enjoy another one of her excellent sushi meals!
Tony Bulak and Angela Brav, Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire
I have known Kei when she had the Japanese Restaurant in Gerrards Cross and have missed her cuisine greatly. What a pleasure it was to learn we can get the food now specially prepared by herself. I was not disappointed. Freshly prepared and attention to detail and presentation, taste like it's suppose to be, i.e. extremely fresh and yummy!
I have no hesitation in recommending Kei for her cuisine.
Christina Pegg, Hibiscus Beauty Clinic, Stoke Poges, Buckinghamshire
Kei’s sushi is just amazing! I am so excited to have discovered such fantastic sushi on my doorstep. The quality, flavours and presentation is truly brilliant.
Rachael Van Reesch
The sushi delivered by Kei always looks astounding and tastes extremely delicious! The colour and attention to detail is unlike anything I have seen before. I recommend Kei for anything from small to large catering requirements.
You will not be disappointed!
I have attended with my daughter, two of Kei’s cookery classes. In one, we learnt to make Sushi and in the other we learnt the method of Tempura cooking.
We found both classes exciting and very different, and often unique, but always very high quality ingredients were provided by Kei.
By far the nicest part was sitting down later in Kei’s lovely dining room, to enjoy eating the delicious meals we had prepared!
Brigid Anthony, Stoke Poges, Buckinghamshire
Kei used to cater for us at Hitachi Capital (UK) when I was CEO and we had Japanese visitors. Her authentic Japanese food was always greatly appreciated by us British and our Japanese friends.
My wife and I, and sometimes also our Japanese visitors were frequent visitors in the past to the Lan Restaurant in Gerrards Cross which was run by Kei. Again, the delicious Oriental cuisine was of a very high standard.
We continue to use Kei’s catering services for private parties and for special treats. Kei makes delicious and varied sushi and many other dishes for us, much to the delight of our friends, who often haven’t tasted Japanese food before. The presentation of the food is quite stunning with great attention to detail and is a joy to eat. We highly recommend her.
David Anthony (Formerly CEO Hitachi Capital (UK) PLC)
I have known Kei since she had a Japanese restaurant in Gerrards Cross. I have used her catering services for many occasions, including Weddings, House Warming Party and Private Parties. The food supplied by Kei always amazes me. The quality of the food has consistently been of a high standard and the presentation is quite stunning and is further complimented by the friendliness and efficiency of her team. Great food and joy to eat. Highly recommended!

Thank you Kei for the great sushi you always make for us. It is always so beautifully presented and tastes great. It is one of the best sushi we ever had.
Thank you x
Sabrina Dolan Gerrards Cross Buckinghamshire
I have now taken two cooking classes - Japanese Tapas and Okonomi -yaki - with Kei and both were absolutely fantastic!
It's a very pleasant and relaxed atmosphere in Kei's kitchen which is simply a great spot both for cooking and socialising with the other participants.
Both evenings were great fun and Kei explained not only the cooking and preparation but also the idea behind each dish so well that it provides plenty of inspiration for new dishes. All dishes are great for both party food and your own evening dinners.
Beware though - once you start, you can't stop, so I'm certainly going back for my classes to learn even more about Japanese food and cooking.
Volker Ahlemeyer, London
We’ve taken several classes with Kei and highly recommend them. Being especially fond of Japanese food, we’ve been delighted to learn from a genuine expert in authentic Japanese food .
We particularly enjoyed our lessons in gourmet sushi, black cod, shabu-shabu, gyoza and miso soup among others. Apart from her culinary expertise, Kei is also a wonderful host; she is generous, hospitable and fun! We recommend her classes to everyone!
Andy and Sharon Cheung, Cambridgeshire
For me it was an incredible experience . I thought Kei was really nice and helpful. She certainly will teach you a lot when you go. I learnt so much and it was really good fun. The food was amazing!

Such a good day and the sushi was amazing . Thank you again and hope to see you soon for more lessons.
Michelle Dibdin , mother of Ben
A huge “THANK YOU“ for all the effort you put into such a wonderful meal last night. The meal was beautiful both in presentation and taste so I look forward to experiencing your cooking again.
Attending Kei’s Supper Club, Tony Sheldon, Berkshire
It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Kei on our in - house Demonstration of Sushi making.
From the outset, Kei took time to understand the business and how the Workshops should be structured to maximise time and interest of those attending. Kei gave a history of Sushi, the health benefits and demonstrated how to make a number of different types of Sushi.
Kei made sure that there was plenty of time for some members of staff to “have a go“ at making Sushi and she made sure that everyone achieved a perfect result!
There was then time for Sushi tasting and comment ranged from - “I had no idea Sushi tasted like this“ to “That is amazingly fresh“.
Throughout the events, Kei was very generous in talking about her experiences and answered questions on a wide range of topics including subjects as diverse as Japanese supermarkets and restaurants and where to holiday in Japan. In summery, Kei is knowledgeable, professional and an absolute joy to work with.
On a personal note, I would like to say how much of a pleasure it was to organise the event at HH with Kei and I really enjoyed the talk and demonstration and to have the really great feedback from everybody made me really happy!
Patricia Keane, Harwood Hutton, Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire
Thank you Kei , we had absolutely amazing time making delicious Japanese food.
Eva and Michael Cejpeck; Staines on Thames, Surrey
I really enjoyed the experience of learning how to make sushi , food that I love with Kei.
Throughout the day we learned to make many types of sushi and more importantly got to eat it ! And believe me that sushi you will be making will be super delicious!
It was an amazing day that I would definitely do again!
With big hugs, Toren; 15 years old boy from West Ilsley, Berkshire
My husband, Holger and I took Kei’s “ Gourmet Dinner Party Sushi and Sashimi Class “. It was my birthday present as I wanted to learn how to make Sushi for ages now. Holger found the class by merely Googling for Sushi classes in our area. We consider ourselves lucky to have found Kei.
The moment we entered, we felt that Kei is a very hospitable woman. She accommodated us with related snacks and drinks, and she made us feel more like good friends than clients. Our classes consisted of 4 participants, and the atmosphere was relaxed and cheerful. Kei has a natural talent to teach. There was no pressure or negativity at all.
Kei helped us calmly and warmly to correct our mistakes, but what was most important to me , she allowed us to have the freedom to make them in the first place. While we were working on our Sushi, Kei managed to teach us a great deal about general Japanese cooking and culture as well.
It was a fantastic afternoon we will always remember, and we can’t wait to book our next class.
Rita and Holger Steinhauer; Bedford, Bedfordshire
The sushi making class with Kei was amazing! The class was very fun, hands-on and enjoyable. Kei was extremely experienced, creative and patient with us. She welcomed us with drinks and snacks throughout the session.
I have also learnt a lot about Japanese culture.
Definitely interested in coming back again to try her other classes!
Jhane Zheng Zhou, St Albans, Hertfordshire
I came across Kei’s website by accident but since she is in the next village to me and I had no plans for the coming weekend I thought I’d try something different. Also, being newly single I figured I’d best learn how to cook for myself at the ripe old age of 55!
From the moment you set foot in the front door, Kei is extremely welcoming with offers of drinks and snacks. Her teaching style is relaxed and very informative and the food produced is just delicious!
I will definitely go back and try some other courses!
Colin Ferns , Chalfont St Giles , Buckinghamshire
Kei’s cookery class was great fun.
I never thought that I could make sushi which all my family love especially those in Australia! I managed to take home a box of sushi goodies which my friends and I enjoyed with a glass of bubbly.
I would highly recommend her class.
Helen Slaughter, Chalfont Heights, Buckinghamshire
Thank you so much for delivering a wonderful cookery class!
It was so engaging, so well thought out and organised with use of highest quality ingredients and so well explained and the experience of making different types of sushi was really fabulous and the sushi tasted so good.
It’s something I’ve never done before but well worth every penny and would throughly recommend it to anyone thinking about trying or learning to make sushi and for any age as we had a mixed class and it worked really well as Kei delivered her teaching in such a calm and meaningful and thoughtful way and just took her time in showing us her cooking tips step by step with so much enthusiasm.
I loved it and it was so interesting to get some historical background as well. An added bonus!
Thank you Kei for an experience I won’t forget.
Kirti Chandarana, Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire
My wife organised an amazing private Sushi and Sashimi Cookery Course with Kei for 5 people in our own kitchen as a surprise birthday present. What a fantastic experience! Kei is a very experienced, relaxed but highly organised tutor. She was very willing to deal with our different levels of expertise, allowed us to have a great deal of fun but still we learnt so much! The ingredients she had sourced were of the highest quality and the banquet we prepared for our evening dinner was delightful. I have attended a number of different cookery courses but this was certainly up there with the best - and all in my own kitchen.Thank you Kei - I will be back soon to learn more.
