Cooking Class - The Best of Japanese Fare

Discover how to prepare your own Japanese meal using local, authentic techniques and ingredients.

Take a culinary journey to Japan as you explore the traditional techniques and classic flavor combinations that make up Japanese cooking. Begin your cooking class with Chef Diego by thinly slicing cucumbers you'll toss in a balanced dressing for a typical palate cleansing starter.

For the main, you'll learn how to carefully slice fresh fish and how to layer rice, seaweed and other ingredients for stunning sushi rolls of both the uramaki (rice on the outside) and makizushi (seaweed on the outside) styles. For dessert, make something subtly sweet and very authentic: Black sesame ice cream.

Guests are welcome to bring wine and beer to enjoy during the class.

The class was great and very informative on cooking tips that I never knew. Our food tasted great! I can’t wait to try to make the paella again on my own.
