Cooking Class: An Introduction to Sushi Rolls

Do you ever look at beautiful sushi rolls and think you could never make that at home? In this cooking class with Chef Danielle, you will learn that you can, in fact, make homemade sushi as pretty as what you'd find in a restaurant. 

Start by learning the basics of proper slicing techniques. Then, Chef Danielle will show you how to perfectly prepare your sticky rice for the rolls. Finally, assemble your three rolls, which include a California roll with crab, a spicy shrimp roll and a vegetarian variety. All rolls include wasabi, ginger and soy sauce.

Our cooking classes are designed to be social events that do not require any previous experience. Guests are welcome to purchase beer to enjoy during the class.

Danielle came highly recommended by a mutual friend. I used her services for a Girls Night In, and I was blown away by her dedication to her craft! This isn't something she does just for extra money in her pocket. This is something she was born to do, and you can tell instantly! From my initial contact with her, she was very warm and personable. She helped me select the perfect menu for my guests, she brought along fresh ingredients, set up a beautiful display, and the kitchen was clean by the time my guest arrived! The food was delicious and beautifully created! Danielle definitely has a gift in awakening the senses when it comes to food. Her prices are very reasonable and she is willing to work with your budget. She is such a gem and I look forward to working with her again in the near future!

One word to describe working with Danielle...AH-MAZING!!! She was very flexible with working around our food allergies/distastes while simultaneously incorporating all the various flavors that I requested in our meal. Her menu that she created for us was both innovative and delicious. Our dinner was by far one of the best meals we've eaten! I would not only book Danielle again, but I would also recommend her to all of my family, friends, and coworkers! Book her - you will NOT regret it!

SO let me tell you. Dani is one of the best cooks that I know. She is extraordinarily professional for the function. And the moment the food she made touched my mouth, I knew that she would be the only person I would ever want to cater food in DC! I highly recommend her for parties, office events, or whatever fits your fancy. It's so important to support local business and I am looking forward to the next meal!

My husband and I had the absolute pleasure of dining with Chef Dani all weekend at a spa. With daily brunch and last night’s dinner, Chef Dani took us on a culinary journey through Mexico, southern US, around the Mediterranean Sea, and into Asia. Every dish was perfect! Looking forward to the next time, and the next.

We hired the chef to cater a luncheon for about 90 of our employees. Dani worked with us on the menu, timing, and delivery, and the entire process was flawless. We have hired a few times since for smaller events and she's come through every time. Could not recommend her enough!
