This class will begin with a demonstration on how to break down fresh fish into sashimi.  The chefs will demonstrate cutting techniques as well as the type of cuts that are best suited for sashimi used for nigiri sushi.  You will also be able to use the sashimi made in this demonstration in your own sushi!

Following this, you will then learn how to prepare the proper ratio of ingredients and mixing techniques used to make sushi rice.  The chef will then teach you three of the main methods used to make nigiri sushi as well as how to make rolled sushi.  

Participants will then move to tables where they will make a full sushi course under the supervision of the chef.  Your stations will be complete with weight scales that will make it easy to get the perfect amount of rice and pre-cut ingredients.
