Rock and Roll Sushi- SOLD OUT!

This class will be taught by Chef Ani. Sushi has a rich, deep history. The concept is hundreds of years old, taking advantage of natural resources from its home region of Japan and providing a fix for those who wanted to preserve their supper without refrigeration. To Americans, however, sushi is a new, mysterious thing- becoming popular on the West Coast in the early 1950s, and going from the shores of the Pacific to the shores of the Great Lakes as few as thirty years ago. With any new cuisine comes mystery, and we’re here to delve into the mysteries of sushi- its terminology, the differences between Japanese and American style sushi, how to make great sushi rice, select and prepare ingredients for sushi, and how to form maki, or rolls, in the comfort of your very own home. Each participant will have the opportunity to learn the maki method, then dive in and choose their own fresh fruits, vegetables and seafood to create three maki rolls. After enjoying your delicious homemade sushi, you go home with the bonus of your very own sushi mat for future rolling ventures. This class is hands on, gluten free and has options for vegetarian and vegan customers (please specify when registering). Come hungry! Pre-registration is required.

This class will be taught by Chef Jeremy. The foods of Peru are heavily influenced by European cuisine, especially that of Spain and Italy, but still uniquely their own. Without the familiar ingredients from their home countries, immigrants modified their traditional cuisines by using ingredients available in Peru.

Peru is particularly famous for its seafood, which we’re sure to showcase via our fantastic seafood department.

Our courses will include the best of the best of what is available on the day of the class, hand selected for freshness and seasonality. Place a little trust in the chef and you’re in for a truly unique culinary experience at a fraction of the price.
