Our sushi making class is delivered by Silla Bjerrum, a sushi chef with 25 years + experience in Japanese food. Silla co-founded Feng Sushi in 1999 and now heads up Innovation and product development for Sushi Daily. Silla loves teaching this course which is a detailed hands on course auditable for all sushi lovers.
Timings: 08:30am - 14:00pm
Silla focuses on the key ingredients and techniques used in Japanese cooking and de-mystifies the making of sushi and sashimi. The course includes the preparation of several types of sushi and sashimi, but includes minimal fish preparation.
The day begins with tea or coffee and a short introduction to the day explaining techniques used and recipes to be cooked. During a hands-on practical session you are guided through the preparation of sushi and sashimi. Advice is given on how to cook sushi rice to perfection and then with Silla's innovative style - there is an opportunity to create a selection of sushi and sashimi. Some of these are enjoyed for lunch the rest is packed away for you to take home.
We are unable to offer an escorted market visit on a Saturday, but you are welcome to arrive early and wander around trade floor before the session begins.
