One of my co-workers used to have dinner parties catered by Sushi Kaji. They come over and prep and serve in your kitchen. For the price you're paying, I imagine they won't have a problem teaching you a little bit.
P.S. Anyone ever tell you not to make it so obvious with your real name on teh interwebz?
P.P.S. I think we went to summer camp together...
