What you'll learn in this japanese cooking class:

Begin your journey to becoming a sushi master! 

Sushi is considered by many as an art form. It takes years to learn properly and a lifetime to master! As we only have a humble few hours, our aim will not to become sushi masters overnight, but to learn the techniques, tips and tricks to recreate beautiful restaurant quality sushi at home. You will learn where to source the best sushi ingredients, basic Japanese knife skills and how to spread, layer, tuck and roll four different types of sushi. This class will focus on the Maki Roll, the traditional Inside Out Roll, the Temaki Roll; commonly known as the Handroll, and finally the elegant but most challenging of all the sushis, the Nigiri.

You will work with other students in groups of 2. Please arrive 15 minutes early to check in, especially if you’re part of a large group. Drinks are available for purchase from the venue and are NOT included in the ticket price. Outside drinks are not allowed.


We use ingredients that are easy to find at local markets and equipment available in every home kitchen!

The location was changed and I never received an email letting me know but to be honest there should of been phone calls instead of emails The location was awful at the cage at the Marriott hotel you could not see the instructors demonstrations The drinks were very very expensive at the marriot The tuna sushi was low quality and cut with breadcrumbs to make it go further We got there late due to the location change and it’s very uncomfortable walking into a class late!!
