In this hands-on experience, art will meet food as we learn to create & design unique pieces of sushi known as kazari maki-zushi.

This patterned or decorative sushi derives from several sushi techniques like Saiku and Futomaki- representing the unique elements of Japanese cuisine not only in taste, but also in its stunning visual appearance. 

Leading this class will be Hiroyo Belmonte- a baker and confectionist certified in the art of decorative sushi from JSIA (Japan Sushi Instructors Association).

Hiroyo will teach us how to make two unique designs- Frogs & Minions (from the adorable hit movie!) Using natural & flavorful ingredients, we’ll learn to manipulate their colors to design and form unique pieces of sushi- revealing a delightfully patterned cross-section.

This approachable technique to sushi-making will ensure that everyone knows who the reigning ruler of dinner parties is.
