Cooking Class: Make Tasty Bites from Tokyo

This cooking class will take your taste buds to the streets of Tokyo as you follow Chef Melissa's expert instruction for preparing casual recipes. Start with a miso soup filled with the goodness of clams, wakame and tofu. Next is oyakodon, a traditional dish with chicken, eggs, rice and onions. You'll then prepare perfect pillows of spicy tuna onigiri with nori, scallions and sushi rice. Finish with a refreshing cucumber salad topped with a tangy vinegar dressing and salty bonito flakes.

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!
