Japan is known for its kawaii foods, but this class elevates the concept to a whole different level with adorable sushi rolls shaped after puppies, cats, and loving little bears that are almost too cute to eat. Learning to make these sushi rolls is a memorable experience for the entire family and a great way to experience Japanese cooking in a fun, relaxed environment. With easy-to-make recipes and fresh ingredients, Kaori, your host, will guide you every step of the way to sushi mastery, and also teach you how to make rolled omelet, a staple of Japanese cuisine that goes well with sushi. After cooking, you'll enjoy your fresh meal together.
