LEVEL I CLASS: Making Makimonos
This is an irreverent and fun sushi-making class, one that requires good hand-head-heart co-ordination. It begins with a subversive history of sushi and Japanese culture to offer context. Then it becomes a hands-on activity, meant to draw out the Inner Sushi Chef in you. Make your sushi (four-five makimonos); take photos to send to your friends and family to prove your culinary genius; eat, drink and just be merry. It’s easy, unpretentious, or as my mother used to say: “Not rocket surgery, okay?” You will also learn a thing or two about what you are putting into your body. Vegetarians are welcome.
LEVEL II CLASS: Nigiri & Sashimi
This is a class where you learn how to cut fish properly for both nigiri and sashimi. You will be using real sushi knives. You will also learn how to prepare sushi rice properly. You will make 8 pieces of nigiri and 8 pieces of sashimi using three kinds of fish + one kind of shellfish. You must have completed Level I class in order to be eligible for this class. This is not for vegetarians.
Whether you are coming with another or by yourself, everyone is welcome.
