Cooking Class: Sushi Basics for Beginners

Join Chef Gilzel in this hands-on introductory sushi making class for beginners. You won't need the experience to hand roll exquisite rolls that mimick your restaurant favorites. 

Chef Gilzel will begin with a fun appetizer; salmon poke sliders with avocado, spicy mayonnaise, furikake and Hawaiian rolls. Next, try your hand at delicately sliced and seared tuna tataki before rolling a classic maki roll. You'll also learn how to prepare a perfectly balanced and savory baked cheese salmon oshi. Finally, finish on a sweet note with tropical mango sticky rice with coconut milk and sweetened condensed milk; a classic Thai street food dessert.

Chef Gilzel is wonderful. I love sushi but I wanted to learn more about it and she was an excellent teacher. She took her time explaining different cuts of fish and how to select the right ingredients, and explained the underlying flavor profiles of each ingredient and how adding different things would change or elevate the dish in certain ways. She is clearly very well versed in all things sushi and it shows! I highly recommend Chef Gilzel if you're interested in learning about techniques and flavors - she was fantastic and I hope to work with her again soon.
