3 advantages of this course

Basics to advanced techniques
You can acquire a wide range of skills and knowledge about sushi, including how to use a Japanese kitchen
knife, how to prepare rice for sushi (Shari), how to clean and cure fish, how to make Edomae style sushi, rolls
or sashimi, and food hygiene management.

A large variety of seafood
You will learn how to make sushi with more than 20 kinds of seafood: white, red, small, medium or large fish,
shellfish, squid or octopus. Tuna, salmon, yellowtail and shrimp are popular overseas, but you will also deal
with basic fish for Edomae style sushi, such as Kohada (Gizzard shad) or Conger eel.
