Cooking Class: Sublime Sushi From Scratch

If you’ve always dreamed of making your own sushi, then join Chef Melissa in this immersive cooking class. She won’t just teach you how to create sublime sushi —she’ll also sharpen your knife skills and give you a crash course in Japanese culinary history. You’ll begin by preparing the ingredients for a number of sushi dishes, including quirky egg cup sushi rolls. You’ll then assemble tofu, rice and fresh carrots to form dumpling-like rolls known as inarizushi. For the main course, you’ll delicately slice fresh fish to construct perfect nigiri and maki sushi rolls.

Our family LOVES sushi and we thought what better way to celebrate a birthday than taking a sushi class? Chef Melissa was AMAZING!!! She was warm, engaging and an amazing teacher. As a family, we mastered 3 styles of sushi: traditional maki, inside-out maki and tameki. We highly recommend Chef Melissa for an enjoyable evening of cooking!
