Just an AWESOME experience! My wife got me a private lesson with Chef Gilzel as a birthday present because she knows how much I love experiential learning. When I arrived, Chef Gilzel had everything ready, with two stations set up side by side. Chef asked me what I wanted to get out of the class, and I told her that I was looking to learn how to cut fish for sushi and sashimi and that I was very interested in learning more about presentation skills. The chef's approach worked very well for me. She first explained things, what things were called, why things were done a certain way, then would proceed to demonstrate the skill, after which she would have me perform the skill and coach me until I was doing better. It was a blast learning about the various fish used for making sushi and learning how to look at a block of fish and decide what best way to use it with a minimal amount of waste. I even got to help fillet a whole fish, then the trimmings were used to make the most delicious stock I’d ever had. Once we were finished crafting all of the various sushi and sashimi dishes Chef proceeded to show me how to decorate and present the food in appealing and creative ways by the use of condiments, colors, position on the plate, etc. And, the best part, sampling the creations once we were all done. This class inspired me to do more sushi dinners at home. So, I would highly recommend taking this class if you’re looking to up your game and learn some new skills and techniques. Well worth the time!!!

This was awesome! My husband and I had been wanting to do one of these forever and we are so glad Chef Gilzel opened her home to us! All the ingredients were extremely fresh and the finished product looked like it came from a magazine.
