    1. There's a school in downtown called Sushi Chef Institute. I don't know much about it, but you can call them about recreational classes for home cooks.

      1. I've taken the the sushi and sashimi classes at Sur La Table.

        They were a lot of fun, and given by one of the instructors
        from the CA Sushi Academy. The instructor I had was Phillip Yi.

        These classes aren't aimed at those who want to become professional sushi chefs, but were very informative and did give hands-on instruction in making various types of sushi.

        I learned a lot, and have used what I learned on several
        (link to Sur La Table's Cooking Classes Index



        1. i went to a class by the california sushi academy (when they were teaching out of hama sushi in hermosa beach). the chef's name was zoran.

          it was a nice fun class aimed at the novice who just wants to have some fun making sushi.

            Thanks to everyone for replying. I just found another one called Tokyo Sushi Academy in Ktown (korean-run).

            I wonder if there are any in the Little Tokyo area. Thanks!
