Sushi-lovers who want to do more than just eat sushi can learn to make it at Nombe with co-owner Mari Takahashi. The focus on healthy living combines the kitchen and the classroom to teach the art of centuries-old Japanese cuisine.
Classes must have at least eight students. To make sure the class happens, get some friends to join you! Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (415) 681-7150 to sign up for the class.
Pairs pay less. Make it a date and save on the class fee.
Want to taste what you’re making before you take the class? Pick up some of Mari’s boxed sushi at the Valencia Whole Foods or the Fresh Organics on Stanyon.
Aspiring sushi chefs turn to Takahashi to learn traditional techniques for authentic sushi making and Japanese cooking. During a two-hour, hands-on class, you'll learn the history of sushi; types of sushi; how to make proper sushi rice; and how to roll Hosomaki, Uramaki, and Futomaki. You'll also learn how to slice fish for sashimi and sushi. Each participant will make between 30 to 50 pieces of sushi, with plenty to take home.
