About This Class

Sushi may just be as popular as pizza in this town. Everyone has their favorite spot, and the sushi chefs at each typically train for years before they can prepare authentic nigiri, sashimi, and maki.

Thankfully, Sonoko Sakai has figured out how to create sushi at home in a more rustic way and instead of years of expert training, she can bring you up to speed in one class. She will show you how to create delicious sushi with high-grade seafood and seasonal vegetables. You’ll learn how to properly make sushi rice, how to assemble sushi, and how to roll it as well. She will also show you how to store and toast nori, as well as how to make your own pickled ginger and miso soup.

Menu

Mari Sushi, Maki-Sushi or “Moon Gazing Roll”, Canapé Style Sushi with Tuna, Yellowtail and other seasonal seafood and herbs, and Yuzu Agar Jelly with Shiratama Mochi

FAQ

What is the format of a typical cooking class?

The average duration of our current cooking classes is 2 hours, which is predominately hands-on work. You will be standing for the majority of class, cooking at your work station as your instructor demonstrates techniques and walks around providing individual feedback.

When should I arrive for my class?

Due to COVID-19 regulations, we can not have students congregate in the building before class starts. Doors will open 5 minutes prior to class starting and we will begin promptly on time. Students will be asked to queue up outside the door of the school, safely distanced (sidewalks are clearly marked) and will be let in the school just before class begins.

What do I need to bring with me to class?

Please arrive at the school with your own mask on. You will be given a new, disposable mask to wear in class to ensure what you have on hasn’t been contaminated prior to entering SFCS. We will have extras available should you need one while at school.

Wear comfortable clothes and close-toed shoes (remember, you’ll be on your feet cooking). The kitchens at SFCS are fully equipped with everything else you need, including clean aprons.

 

Do I need to eat before class?

Due to COVID-19 regulations, we will not be serving food or drinks during class, We will, however, be sending you home with both ingredients and finished food items so you can enjoy them later, and practice as well.

What should I wear to class?

Wear casual clothing you can easily move around in, and comfortable close-toed shoes. Long hair must be pulled back and masks, provided by SFCS, are required while in the building.
