We had a great time learning and making our own Shushi lunch. Everyone in our seven person, three generation family, ages from 12 to 72, felt comfortable with the thoughtful and friendly style of the instructors, both spoke excellent English. An added bonus were the dozens of photos and several videos they filmed and delivered to us at the end of the class.
