WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
To start the program, participants will learn all about the culture of sushi and practice the hygiene techniques necessary to prevent contamination. Your instructor will also tell you a little about the history of the cuisine, and how it has come to be as it is today.
Then you will get to work making your sushi! Though restaurant chefs may make it look easy, acquiring the techniques to make beautiful and artistic sushi pieces can take years of practice. In our lesson, however, you will master some of the basics in just a few hours (with a little help from our handy rice-molding kits should you need them). Using these techniques, you will learn to make three delicious types of sushi: nigiri zushi (classic hand-molded sushi), gunkan maki (sushi wrapped in nori seaweed) and hosomaki zushi (thin sushi rolls).
Our classes are flexible, designed for everyone from beginners to expert chefs, and we offer instruction on handmaking sushi, as well as information on the use of sushi-making kit. Whichever way fits you; we can teach you how to make tasty and photo-worthy sushi that is can compete with any of Tokyo’s best sushi joints.
After you have made your sushi, you will then sit down to enjoy it as a meal. As you eat, your instructor will teach you all about the condiments related to sushi, as well as introduce you to Japanese dining etiquette. Our knowledgeable instructors all have high-level language skills, so this conversation can be almost as delicious as the meal. Bon Appétit!
