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
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
