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 cooking classes is 4 hours, and they are broken down into three segments: Introductory lecture or demo, hands-on cooking, and eating.

The class will begin with a short discussion or demo from your instructor. After, you can expect to work either on a team or individually to prepare the class menu. As a group, your class will prepare the selected menu in its entirety. In most classes, not every student will make every dish.

Learning happens throughout the class, and your instructor will often call out key techniques as they happen in each recipe.

Most classes conclude by sitting down as a group to eat what you’ve prepared, followed by a discussion of each recipe. You will leave with a copy of the recipe packet and a working knowledge of every dish that was made so you can recreate them at home.

When should I arrive for my class?

Doors open 15 minutes before the class start time.

What do I need to bring with me to class?

You do not need to bring anything with you to class, unless otherwise noted in the class description. The kitchens at SFCS are fully equipped and aprons, recipes, equipment, food and wine are all provided for you. 

Do I need to eat before class?

In most classes, you will be sitting down to eat a complete meal that you have prepared along with your classmates. Since this typically occurs towards the end of the class period, an appetizer or small plate is usually prepared early on in class. However, you’re welcome to additionally have a snack before you arrive or bring one with you.

Please note, for our Baking & Pastry classes, a light meal will be provided for you.

What should I wear to class?

We suggest wearing casual clothing you can easily move around in, and highly recommend wearing comfortable closed-toe shoes. Long hair should be pulled back.
