Learn the art of sushi from Memphis' own Jimmy Ishii, founder of the popular Sekisui Japanese restaurants, and his Master Sushi Chef Yoshiyuki Takusagawa (Yoshi). In this hands-on class you will learn how to select ingredients for sushi, roll sushi and make sushi rice. Work side-by-side these masters and learn how easy and fun making your own sushi can be.

Enrollment is open for two classes:

  • Wednesday, May 5, 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm
  • Wednesday, June 2, 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm

The cost is $79, regardless of date. This class is designed for students aged 16 and older. These are sure to sell out, so be sure to enroll soon if you're interested!

The sushi demonstration will include Uramaki (California Roll and Crunchy Shrimp Roll) and Hosomaki (Spicy Tuna Roll).

Full information on this class can be found here. The Memphis campus of Viking Cooking School is located at 1215 Ridgeway Road, Suite 101 (in Park Place Centre with Amerigo and P.F. Chang's). Their phone number is 901.763.3747.
