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!
