LEVEL I CLASS: Making Makimonos: $30 + 13% HST + 18% Gratuity


This is an irreverent and fun sushi-making class. It begins with a presentation about the history of sushi to offer context. Then it becomes a hands-on activity, meant to draw out the Inner Sushi Chef in you. You make five makimonos (cucumber, kanikama, salmon, tuna, seafood medley); take photos to send to your friends and family to prove your culinary genius; eat, drink and laugh a lot. Vegetarians and those with allergies are welcome, but need to give advance notice.

Try our popular sake flights (3 different varieties) with your sushi for $20 + HST + 18% Gratuity.

  4. My name is Laura Bain and I work on the Lang & O’Leary Exchange at CBC Totonto.
    I’m very interested in the idea of sustainable sushi.
    Sushi is so popular in the city and all other the country, but I’ve never really heard of any of the restaurants using sustainable fish suppliers.
    I wonder if you may be able to speak as a guest on the show regarding the issue?
    Please let me know.
