Cooking Class - The Art of Sushi

Perfect your sushi-making skills with Chef Motoko.

Surprise your dinner guests with a colorful selection of sushi. Chef Motoko’s recipes are based around the Japanese philosophy of soshoku, or frugal meal. Traditionally made up of a soup, a side dish and rice, this style of eating has become the norm in most Japanese households due to its health benefits.

Discover the techniques to two different kinds of sushi, a basic sushi roll and an eye-catching rope sushi. Chef Motoko will guide you through sushi basics including rice seasoning, fish cutting, rolling, and slicing. Create a complete Japanese dinner by learning the recipes to a homemade miso soup and marinated vegetables.

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

It was really easy to communicate and coordinate with Chef Motoko-- my parents had such a lovely time cooking with her. This what they had to say: "Chef Motoko is so nice. We had such fun working with her. What a great gift. Good fun and educational." Thanks so much Chef Motoko!

Chef Motoko was incredibly informative and friendly. She definitely knows her sushi and has the right mindset for cooking. She grows some of her own ingredients, has a published sushi book, runs a blog and genuinely believes in healthy eating. She was also able to accommodate our eating preferences which really made us happy. I would definitely recommend.
