We created this class just for kids! Sushi rolling is fun and in this class you'll make three rolls. Two of the most popular in restaurants, and one fruity dessert roll!
Students will learn how to roll their own sushi. Chef will explain how to make sushi rice. Then we'll move on to proper cutting techniques, and explain the ingredients we'll use and where you can get them. This class will teach you the fundamentals of making sushi rolls by having you build two of the classics, California Rolls and Crunchy Shrimp Rolls (seafood is cooked, not raw). You will also make a strawberry and kiwi roll with a sweet soy wrapper to finish off the class.
- Classes are limited to 12 students with one Chef Instructor and two support staff.
