Join Chef Denis is creating innovative vegan sushi with a twist on authentic Japanese cuisine.
In this unique plant-focused cooking class, you’ll make vegan versions of a few sushi favorites. This menu, curated by Chef Denis, is brimming with the fresh flavors of traditional Japanese ingredients.
First, fill mushrooms with chickpea wasabi purée for mock deviled eggs, and roast carrots for a coconut soup infused with spicy chilis. Chef Denis will then teach you the ancient art of rolling sushi using vegan ingredients such as spinach, beets, white beans, sweet potatoes and chickpeas. End by whipping up creamy coconut rice pudding accented with juicy papaya.
Guests are welcome to provide wine and beer to enjoy during the class.

I booked Chef Denis’s pizza making class for my husband’s birthday and we had an amazing time! Denis provided all the ingredients, including several that were fresh from his garden, as well as some of the kitchen tools that we needed for the class. The food was delicious and we are already using some of the knife skills and cooking tips he taught us during class. He also had some great stories from his time working as a professional chef in NYC restaurants. We will absolutely book again!

We couldn’t have asked for a better experience than our time with Chef Denis. Chef Denis is an extremely skilled and thoughtful teacher and we loved this hands on experience. He left us with a lot of awesome tips and tricks- and some of the most delicious food!!! (A risotto dessert to die for!). We will absolutely be recommending Chef Denis to everyone- and taking another one of his courses.

Chef Denis was passionate and fun. The cooking experience was the perfect balance of cooking in the beginning and then having Chef Denis finish off the dishes with his expert touch. Great for birthday celebrations.

What an amazing experience! We wanted to try something new and have a gourmet dinner without having to go out. Chef Denis sure did deliver that. He was prompt, had excellent communication, curated an amazing menu, was very thorough and kind and showed up to serve us dinner in the middle of a snow storm! We are already planning our next dinner party. Thank you so much for everything, the food was truly delicious and everything was grand!
