Dinner Party Sushi – Special Class at Sozai Cooking School

9 August 2013, London

This August, Sozai Cooking School is offering Japan Society members the opportunity to join a sushi making class.  This is a wonderful chance to learn Japanese cooking skills from a professional chef and apply them to meals in your own home.


Sushi comes in a wide variety of shapes and sizes and is a key feature of dinner party dining in Japan. In this class you will learn to make exciting party sushi full of tremendous ‘wow’ factors and guaranteed to impress your guests. Akemi Yokoyama will teach you the skills and techniques required to put together a truly astonishing party plate.


Included in the evening class:


*How to make sushi rice
*Inari-sushi (colourful sushi made with bean curd skin, ultra thin eggomelette, prawn and raw salmon)
*kazari-sushi (large square sushi rollwith a beautiful pattern)
*temari-sushi(small round shaped sushi)


Akemi Yokoyama‘s enthusiasm for gastronomy originated early in her childhood in Sapporo, where enjoying the spoils of wild vegetable foraging and sea fishing were regular family activities. This drove her understanding regarding the importance of the freshest, highest quality ingredients together with exquisite taste pairings in Japanese food. Akemi came to London in 1985, where she learned sushi making while working in London’s popular Japanese restaurant Hiroko.


Sozai is the first cooking school in the UK dedicated to authentic Japanese food. In addition to well-known dishes like sushi and tempura, the school offers a wide variety of classes covering traditional cuisine, such as multi-course kaiseki and vegan shojin, and casual and street food including ramen noodles and savoury okonomiyaki pancakes.
