November Level I class dates are now up. Click HERE for details.

Due to the rise in ingredient costs, class prices will be going up $5 before taxes from November 1st, 2015.

You have until October 31st, 2015, 11:59pm to purchase your spots at the current prices (Level I: $35 Level II: $45).

Your best bet is to purchase a gift certificate. Gift certificates expire one year from the date of purchase and are ideal as birthday and Christmas gifts. Therefore, if the current posted October and November dates do not work for you, a gift certificate allows you a full year of options to choose from. (All upcoming month’s dates are posted in the middle of the current month.)

GC Level I & II

I was originally asked in late 2014 to be a participating chef at the Toronto Sushi Festival. The organizers of the festival said that they would provide the ingredients, marketing and equipment, and all I had to do was come up with the rolls. I figured that if I could master 2 rolls really well,I would be able to pull this off! I was pumped at the time and partnered with my cousin who lives in Montreal, as he works in the restaurant industry including a Japanese restaurant. We were excited that our rolls would be judged by top Toronto chefs and that we would be participating with real chefs working in the industry.
