Experience Details
In an in-depth, private sushi-making class, go behind the counter and learn how to make sushi from start to finish with a professional sushi chef. The lesson begins with historical and cultural background. After hearing about the history of sushi and learning about the proper Japanese dining etiquette and table manners, you’ll feel comfortable walking into any sushi restaurant in Japan. This sushi-making class starts with the fundamentals, and one of the most crucial elements of making delicious sushi is the shari (vinegared sushi rice which is shaped into perfect oval beds for the fish toppings). If you want to make nigiri sushi at home, you must first master making shari. Then, the chef will start the fish cutting show, breaking down a whole fish into manageable pieces. The incredible finesse and smooth execution is something to aspire to, but that’s for another day… After the fish has been butchered, everyone can roll up their sleeves and follow along with the chef, making delicate morsels of nigiri sushi and hearty temakizushi (hand-rolled sushi) that are filled with either tuna or crab. After all your hard work, you’ll be rewarded with a sit-down meal of your handmade sushi. As you eat, the chef will chat with you, telling you stories and answering your questions. And at the end of the class, not only will you take away fun memories and commemorative photos, but you’ll also receive useful souvenirs and a certificate. Perhaps the best souvenir of all, however, is the new sushi-making skills you can use to wow your friends and family back home.
