Cooking Class - Essential Vegan Sushi

Join Chef Denis in 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.

We had an amazing night cooking our vegan meal with Chef Denis for my husband's birthday! He was able to accommodate our dietary restrictions and even asked about alternative dessert options for us. We ended up making a delicious matcha cake that we garnished with his homemade rose petal jam. Chef Denis helped us make our leftover food into a tasty salad. We can't wait to book another class with him in the future.

From me: Chef Denis was great! He was very knowledgeable and patient (I literally didn't even know how to hold a knife). He was also just interesting to chat with! My boyfriend, Greg, and I had a great time taking his class! Everything was delicious! He was great at giving instructions and brought any cooking tools I might've not had in my kitchen. I think the only feedback I'd give is having more options for vegan recipes on the Cozymeal menu overall! I'd totally love to do another class in the future, as one of the most difficult parts of going vegan/vegetarian is cooking things from scratch as opposed to heating up the overpriced/over-processed meat substitutes ? From my boyfriend who took the class with me: Hey yeah absolutely seconding everything Isa said. Denis was a great instructor and a joy to cook with. He walked us through the recipes at our pace, demonstrated all of the steps, and made sure to get us both involved as often as possible. As a person, he was funny and interesting, with many stories to share about cooking and beyond.
