Experience Details
Japan’s most recognizable dish abroad, sushi is one of the centerpieces of Japanese cuisine, with a centuries-long history. From budget-friendly automatized conveyor belt sushi, all the way up to high-end refined sushi restaurants with the finest service, sushi is a must-try dish that’s destined to rocket to the top of your list of favorite foods. Whether you are a connoisseur or a first-timer, if you are interested in a deeper sushi experience in Tokyo, join this cooking class and start to scratch the surface of this ancient traditional cuisine. The location of this cooking class plays a major role in ensuring your experience is the most high-quality sushi-making training. You will learn how to make sushi with a professional chef at a traditional restaurant featuring tatami matting, sliding doors, soft tones, and clean Japanese aesthetics. Welcomed by the landlady, you will meet the sushi chef (your instructor for this cooking class) in the tatami room. Prepare to soak in the knowledge of your teacher and seasoned chef. He will introduce to the background and history of sushi, with the assistance of a Japanese to English interpreter. As it is private, this class allows each individual time for personal interaction with the chef, and it’s your best bet if you want to learn the secrets of sushi making. Watch the chef’s demonstration close-up and listen carefully to his suggestions during your turn at rice molding. After learning the basics, you’ll be handed a participation certificate by your teacher at the end of the practice. Finish up this hands-on cooking lesson with a sushi-based lunch. Eight pieces of sushi will be paired with a seasonal appetizer and a cup of sake (or soft drink). It is the perfect mouthwatering conclusion to your training with a pro sushi chef.
