Japanese cooking class on Oct 20th ’16

I welcomed a boy and the mother from France. The mother is a chef so I had been excited to see her in the .

They requested to cook Maki- for the main dish so I prepared fresh , tuna, avocado and cucumber for the sushi .

The boy, 10 years old, worked spontaneously and wanted to try cutting process and did well!  I could assume he helps mom very often for work.


He is cutting his favorite salmon sashimi… well done!  After cutting they rolled those ingredients for maki sushi, and made Nigiri-sushi.  We also made salmon  aburi-sushi (broiled salmon)  in the class.

Although the process was little complicated, the boy liked  salmon sushi at the end.

The chef has a very good sense of  and picked up cooking skill immediately. So she asked me a good point questions often that made me nervous, haha. I also learned a lot from her point of view.
