Cooking Class: The Art of Handmade Sushi

If you want to explore the world of traditional Japanese sushi, this cooking class with Chef Deborah is the perfect place to start. She will teach you how to make three styles of sushi that are completely unique to one another. 

Start with a classic California roll filled with surimi and avocado. Next, you will learn how to make a heartier roll filled with grilled beef and spicy mayonnaise. Finally, make nigiri, which is a style of sushi where the ingredients are placed on top of the rice rather than inside it. This sushi will be made with cooked shrimp.

Our cooking classes are designed to be social events that do not require any previous experience. Guests are welcome to purchase beer to enjoy during the class.

The cooking class was excellent. Chef Deborah was a delightful fountain of fascinating information about the Thai people and the ingredients and methods they use to create delicious food. The chef 's teaching method of showing technique and then having each guest perform the task was a perfect way to learn. Looking forward to another class soon.

Chef Deborah and her class were AMAZING. My husband and I had a really wonderful time. Chef Deborah patiently explained all of the tradition ingredients, shared where we could buy them, and also provided photos of them in our recipe binder we got to take home for easy shopping in the future! The food was unbelievable. Chicken satay is a simple dish and I rarely order it in a restaurant. However, Chef Deborah's version was UNBELIEVABLE. The chicken was more tender than any other satay I've had and she had many tips about adjusting the flavor of the peanut sauce to your own tastes. We can't wait to do another class with her!

Our class with Chef Deborah was amazing! She was kind, friendly, accommodating, and really went above and beyond in making our experience a special one. The food was all absolutely delicious and she's an incredible teacher - my husband and I learned so much more than we even expected! I want to take another class with her ASAP. Thank you, Chef Deborah!

What an outstanding class! Chef Deborah is personable, welcoming, and has a degree in food science from her home country, Thailand. This is the best cooking class I’ve ever taken, by far! Each course was mouth watering, and indeed, delicious. I plan on taking more classes from Chef Deborah in the future.

Deborah hosted an informative, fun, and delicious lesson. I learned how to cook three dishes, and also learned a few cooking techniques that I'll certainly use again soon. One thing I really liked is that she encouraged us to taste the flavors frequently as we cooked, so I learned about the dish's intended style and how to adjust the ingredients. Deborah is a generous teacher, and the food is fantastic!

Chef Deborah was amazing! She went above and beyond to teach us 3 courses. She let each of us cook every dish giving us step-by-step directions the entire time. The ingredients were fresh and we were able to participate from start to finish. The class was extremely well thought out. She even had to-go boxes to take the extra food home (there was A LOT of extra food). I’d love to do it again and would highly recommend her. You will not regret it!!! 5 stars.

We had a great time learning how to cook traditional Thai food with Chef Deborah. This is something that we have wanted to learn more about for a while now and thought it was awesome to find a class on this type of food. The flavors were great and we enjoyed talking with chef throughout the night. We are definitely going to have to practice our wok skills! Great event Chef Deborah!
