If you want to learn how to make sushi at home, this is your chance. In this fun and interactive class with Chef Motoko, you will be taught how to create traditional Japanese sushi with a twist. 

Start with a miso soup to whet your appetite before prepping your seaweed, sticky sushi rice, fillings and toppings. Your first sushi creation will be an inside-out roll with rice on the outside followed by a seaweed and rice wrap.

Chef Motoko is a true delight. My husband and I very much enjoyed learning from her, and the food she prepared was so delicious. We had a wonderful time!

I booked Chef Motoko as a gift for my parents, and they had a lovely time. The next day, my mother told me that Chef Motoko had been extremely friendly and taught them a lot. It sounds like it was the perfect balance of fun, education and good food. Thanks so much!

Chef Motoko knows sushi like the back of her hand, and you can really feel her passion in her cooking. Not only has she published sushi books and articles, but she even grows a lot of her own ingredients. What more could you ask for? She even adjusted her menu due to some of our group's diet preferences. Definitely recommended!

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.
