Team Building Activity: Cooking Competition: Sushi Roll Rivalry

Prepared with ingredients and sushi know-how, your group will break up into teams to create their own specialty sushi rolls to compete for the win.

Chef Desiree was amazing! She is so knowledgeable, friendly and engaging. Both my boyfriend and I were amazed with how quickly she taught us to make gorgeous & delicious rolls that we will be making at home again in the future to impress friends and family. I will be recommending her class to others!
