Sushi Making

Tuesday, January 21st from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

The art of sushi has become a culinary, epicurean, and cultural phenomenon in the West and is a cuisine that has evolved from surprisingly modest beginnings. Sushi as a style of food began as a way of preserving fish. In the 7th century, the mountain people of Southeast Asia invented the technique of pickling and it was soon adopted by the surrounding countries. We are hosting our own sushi making morning, and would like you to come and join us for a one-of-a-kind experience for your education and enjoyment!
