Taste of Japan
When it comes to Japanese seafood dishes, one would be amiss not to mention sushi, the most quintessential of all Japanese seafood dishes. Sushi was invented around the 8th century as a way of preserving fish by storing it in fermented rice. Over time, freshly cooked rice rather than fermented rice was used, lightly seasoned and eaten with fresh fish rather than preserved fish, in this class learn the art of sushi and sashimi preparation and enjoy an array of different plates. With fresh fish hand picked from the Auckland fish market Learn how to cut sashimi and roll Maki rolls like a sushi master. Look forward to flavours of blood orange ponzu or green apple with a twist of chilli. Take home the skills to make stunning sushi and sashimi.
Complimentary beverage on arrival.

What an awesome evening. Great food, company and entertainment. Wonderful chef – approachable, knowledgeable and passionate about the food.
The recipes catered for all skill types so we all had something to do which was great. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening and the wine matching was perfect.
Fast and Fresh Seafood. Wow! This was an excellent class, have never had so much fun with food! Thanks for a great evening and experience.
I enjoyed the first class so much I have been to 3 more! A great way to improve your seafood cooking skills and have a fun night at the same time.
A great way to enjoy a relaxed and entertaining Sunday brunch with a difference. We invited along some friends and created our own bench of 5.
My partner brought me a gift voucher – possibly self interest involved but I have gone on to cook the recipes plenty of times at home. She is impressed!
I think it’s excellent value and three hours of fun entertainment, great food and you get to make some new friends.
The Filleting class is amazing! Chef John Campbell is entertaining and incredibly helpful. We enjoyed a delicious lunch and I can now fillet the catch!
I am so impressed with value for money. Thoroughly enjoyed the chefs presentation, then it was fab to get a chance to make and eat it.
Was a little nervous about the whole ‘cooking thing’ however the chef and the people I cooked with made things a breeze – plus heaps of fun.
