Question from Anonymous
Hi! Are any of the mochi fillings in this class dairy-free?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hey there, yes! The Mochi have dairy-free and vegan options but it’s limited since they use a lot of dairy in most of their fillings. For the hot one, it can be vegan and dairy-free.

Hi. I'd like to attend a few classes with my 17-year-old son, who's a food enthusiast and an aspiring chef. Is there a possibility that some of the classes that currently require 18 and over participants, maybe eventually tailored to accept his age group? Thank you.

Reviewed by Anonymous on 2/17/2020
I bought this class to learn how to make mochi. However, all of the materials were made, and all we did was wrap things together. I still have do not know how to actually make mochi. Overall, I’d like to get a partial refund (amount not covered by the mochi we brought home) since this lesson was not really any lesson at all.

Mochi Making
Reviewed by Victoria Y. on 12/30/2019
It is an overall good class. Teaching seems rushed and it is difficult to squeeze in questions. There is some missing information about ingredients, ratio of rice flour to dough for mochi cooked in soup, and we are sometimes asked to leave the kitchen so they can work on tasks that they say are trade secrets. Maybe that is why there is intentional missing information compared to a typical cooking class, where there is nothing to hide or keep secret.

Really enjoyed the class during my trip to NY. Took it with my sister. It was a great activity to do together and learn something new. Mochi was delicious!
