Begin by learning the technique for preparing a perfect pot of sushi rice, a true necessity in mastering this dish. Then, you’ll use fresh, high-quality ingredients to create three popular onigiri fillings, including tuna and green onion with carrots and soy sauce, salted salmon with cucumber, nori and roe, and your choice of either red bean paste or pickled plums.

Chef Yaakov was friendly, punctual, and the food was AMAZING! He had to work around my four hungry pups and he did a great job helping to make a magical evening.
