Lauren Kimbrell commented on 10/07/2015 2:51 PM Kelli is a phenomenal chef! She makes learning to make sushi fun!! She is the most deserving person for this. She works so hard!
Jenny Gilmore commented on 10/08/2015 10:23 AM I've know Kelly for years and think she is incredibly professional and personable. Her energy level and enthusiasm for her work is off the chain! If you miss out on this lady, you've missed a down to earth sushi artist! You can't afford to pass Kelly up!
Jonathan Landham commented on 10/08/2015 1:32 PM I've only had the chance to take a single class with her, but Kelly left an amazing impression. She is down to earth, talented, and personable, and has this difficult to define quality as a teacher to draw in and engage her audience.
Kari Lochamy commented on 10/08/2015 1:39 PM I wish I still lived in Birmingham so I go back to a class with Kelly! Funny and creative, Kelly was able to speak to a large class full of a variety of personalities and help each of us leave with some killer how-to sushi knowledge!
Joseph Venturelli commented on 10/08/2015 1:40 PM Kelly is one of the best Sushi chefs I have ever known, I have attended her basic and advanced class and I have been shockingly successful in making my own sushi. I thought it was going to be so hard but with her incredible patience and skill it was so easy.
Karin Parker commented on 10/08/2015 1:53 PM Kelly is a fantastic teacher! My husband and I took her class in Madison, and I made California rolls and spicy tuna rolls the next night for dinner. We were also hugely entertained. She's funny and personable, and we will be taking another class.
Nichele Hoskins commented on 10/08/2015 2:34 PM Have you seen Jiro Dreams of Sushi? Kelly is so NOT Jiro. Kelly told us that she developed her skills in Mobile, Alabama. She has a funny and approachable way of teaching folks to make a food that is often referred to as bait in these parts. I took her class with a friend and enjoyed the company, the instruction and the food we made. Jenny has it right. Kelly is a down-to-earth sushi artist.
Meg Byrd commented on 10/08/2015 2:41 PM I LOVED the class that a fellow middle-school teacher and I took from Kelly! She was entertaining and had the perfect balance of structure and fun for "the masses" to learn how to make sushi. She also gave excellent advice on what tools/ingredients to go ahead and spend the money on as well as which tools/ingredients aren't necessary to splurge on. I live in a rural area and drove 2 hours (one way) for this class on a weekend night. It was worth every penny!
Rebecca Pritchett commented on 10/08/2015 4:55 PM My husband and I took Kelly's beginner and intermediate sushi classes, and she is awesome! We had so much fun, and now we make our own sushi at least a couple of times a month. She was informative and lots of fun. And she had some really great, unique sushi recipes! Bacon and pepper jelly sushi sounded awful, but OH, MY! It was incredible!!
