Working with children in high-risk, low-income neighbourhoods is the raison d’être of Sushi Making For The Soul. It was founded by Chef Sang to raise awareness around childhood poverty in the GTA, as well as meaningfully engage children in the basics of culturally-relevant food literacy. Making sushi in a class environment was the vehicle to get the message out. During the Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, Chef Sang will conduct four workshops with children from Toronto’s Regent Park and Moss Park neighbourhoods. Each workshop will teach children how to make a healthy Korean dish on a tight budget, as well as discuss issues around food waste.
First of all, whatever preconceptions you may have about sushi making,... throw them out the window on your way to this class.
This event, yeah it’s way more than just a class, is perfect whether you’re going with a friend, coworkers or date.
Chef Sang Kim has a way of putting everyone at ease right from the beginning. I suggest you arrive about 15-30 minutes early to meet and mingle with others before class starts.
The class itself begins with a really interesting presentation of where sushi comes from and the proper etiquette of eating these heavenly rolls. You will also learn about the great work that Chef Sang Kim does with local troubled youth. During the class itself you will make enough sushi to be well fed so no need to eat later. Do not be intimidated if you’ve never even thought about how sushi is made. The class will teach you step by step and to be honest, I was impressed with my friend’s creations. The whole class is a blast and you will have a great time. I’m actually looking forward to taking some more advanced classes next time I’m in Toronto. In a nutshell, GO, you won’t regret it.read more
