Cooking Class: Japanese Tempura and Sushi

Sushi and tempura are two of Japan's most signature dishes that are also popular around the world. Learn how to create both from scratch in this guided cooking class with Chef Aleck. 


He will show you how to make your own tempura batter, which you will use on a variety of vegetables before frying them to a perfect crisp. Chef Aleck will also teach you how to make two types of sushi rolls — one filled with tuna and the other with spicy salmon.

Guest reviews for Chef Aleck

Chef Aleck’s vegan food blew me away. He prepared a breakfast meal for a mixed audience that included 1 vegan. Usually, in a similar circumstance, the non-vegan diners would be left saying something like, “that was pretty good, for vegan food”. This was certainly not the case with Aleck’s vegan fare. The flavors were impeccably curated & fully fledged. Not once did thoughts like, “this would be great with some meat/dairy” ever enter my mind. I even asked him if he could teach me how to recreate the meal at home for my Queen!

Chef Aleck's years of experience shines through in seemingly simple home cooked food that is bursting with flavor. He was so fun to watch in the kitchen and kept us all entertained as he created, hands down, the best vegan meal I've ever had the pleasure of eating. Absolutely delicious!

I recently did one of Aleck’s dinners with some friends. The food was excellent. He is very creative and knows how to blend flavors and textures in a way that I’ve never known possible. The chicken dish was awesome. It was something he created. Aleck is a very gracious and convivial host. Thanks Aleck for an awesome food experience.
