Sushi - Advanced Course

In this course we will focus more intensively on two important core areas of sushi preparation: knives & fish. Which knives are needed, how are they used and how do you properly care for Japanese knives? Under the guidance of our kitchen team you can try your hand at filleting. Special topics will also be covered, such as special cutting techniques for sashimi decoration or how to make tamago, the Japanese egg custard. As a highlight, you will learn and practice special sushi preparation forms such as oshi sushi and Bō sushi. Practical tips on how to serve "Japanese style" will round out your experience.

When tasting together at the end of the course with miso soup and high-quality Japanese Sake you will have the opportunity to exchange ideas with like-minded people and our sushi master.

We have all the necessary utensils ready, but you are also welcome to bring your own knife. Likewise, the focus of an advanced course can also be placed according to the wishes of the participants - so every course is different and interesting topics can always be highlighted or deepened.

Please understand that in the interest of the general progress of the whole course group, we require that you have already gained practical experience in sushi preparation or have attended our beginners course. We also ask for your understanding that the course is not intended for professional chefs or chefs from other sushi restaurants. Number of participants: minimum seven, maximum twelve people.

Sushi course, materials, rental apron and drinks per person 179,- Euro.
