Sushi classes??

Dear Chow friends, I would love to take a sushi making class but not at a place like Sur la Table. Does anyone have any suggestions?? Should I just find a sushi chef willing to do a private class and gather all my friends or try to find a restaurant. Thank you, Ela

  1. Great News has many different cooking classes including sushi making:

      Thank you, I looked at their list and was hoping to have something more interesting than "Sushi Rice; Inari Zushi (rice stuffed tofu pocket); Kappa Maki (cucumber roll); Tekka Maki (tuna roll); California Roll". But if their basic techniques and fundamentals are good, then I should try it. Took a Sur la Table class with friends and it was very disappointing.

        Hipcooks in North Park has a casual Japanese class I think every other month. It is likely basic like the great news, but at least you have some options.

    2. Seems like I remember the Prado at Balboa Park offering some sushi making classes at one time, never have personally taken one

        I guess that closed a couple of years ago. I found this one

      2. Check with the female itamae at Akinori. I don't think she does it, but I overheard talking about it with a client at the bar.

        1. Have you checked with The Hive on 14th and C? I've seen signs there saying they offer sushi classes, but don't know anything about them beyond that.
