This class will show how easy and fun is to organise a big Sushi party at home.
I will show you sushi with fish and also sushi for vegetarians. We will focus on the perfect preparation of the rice and other ingredients. Key techniques will be demonstrated.
The most important thing in my class is that you are having fun while you learn. The class is two hours long. After cooking is done, you will enjoy the dishes you cooked.
I grew up in Japan where much importance is placed on food. It was quite natural to follow the path of becoming even more obsessed with food as I became older.
I have been teaching Japanese cooking in my home in New York using local and organic seasonal foods. My principal in food that I prepare is that it has to be tasty and healthy.
In Japanese cuisine there is more emphasis on freshness and seasonality of the ingredients. The huge variety of seasonal foods results in an appreciation of when the different foods are in season and their suitability for providing satisfaction at the time of year when their quality is at its best. Care is taken to make the prepared foods very digestible. Lightness and transparency through fine simplicity is my favourite part of a Japanese meal.
I choose a specifically practical approach for teaching technique, so you will be pleasantly surprised at how easily fine flavor and visual delight can be achieved at your own home after my class.
