Sushi is a popular Japanese cuisine that is enjoyed all over the world for its simplicity and freshness. In this Sushi Making Show and Tea Tasting Experience, you’ll get an up-close seat as two trained sushi chefs prepare several different types of sushi for you. Observe their techniques and learn about tea and sushi in-depth, hearing stories from two female sushi chefs who have made it in a male-dominated industry. You’ll get a close-up look at how sushi is made and also find out about the history of sushi, possibly even receiving some tips about making your own.
In addition to the sushi making show, you’ll get a chance to taste and learn more about Japanese tea. You will be tasting 5 different kinds of Japanese tea. The chefs for the experience are twin sisters (Ayumi and Shihomi) who worked as sushi chefs in Geneva, Switzerland for three years and as Itamae (Japanese cuisine chefs) in Tokyo for seven years. This is an incredible accomplishment as female sushi chefs are fairly uncommon in Japan. These women are incredibly intelligent and kind and will ensure that your tasting experience is one of a kind.
