These popular classes run four times a year (every 3 months, on the last Sunday of the month) and is aimed at children aged 6–12 years old. When we arrived, we were greeted by the manager Carlos and Chef Alex. Before the children got started, they each personalised their own bandana and were taken to wash their hands.

Every child had their own work station around a long table, with the Chef positioned in the middle. Each setting had a sheet of useful Japanese words/sayings, bamboo mat, small water bowl (to wet their fingers), board, and a tub for rice.

The making:

During the session, the children made two hosomaki sushi rolls (one cucumber and one salmon), plus two nigiri sushi (rice with salmon placed ontop). Alex, the Chef worked through one sushi at a time. Starting with the cucumber hosomaki sushi roll, he talked through and demonstrated what the children would do. While the kids got hand-ons and tried it, Alex demonstrated it again one step at a time, along with them. He was great, taking his time to show the children and make sure they had completed each step before he moved on.  There were other restaurant staff on hand / standby to help anyone that needed it. Alex talked lots about the ingredients and really simplified what he was doing for the children. Oliver particularly enjoying making the salmon sushi, as he liked how if felt “bumpy and slimy”.

After the sushi was made:

All of the children were so proud of their beautiful creations. They each had their own plate, filled with stunning sushi – all made by them. Once they had finished, they were offered a drink of their choice. Everyone wiped down their stations, then enjoyed their drinks and could try their delicious sushi. Anyone preferring to take their sushi home could.  In fact, we noticed a couple of families ordering each take away while they were there.

All of the kiddies the received a goodie bag on completion and able to take their sushi mats home with them.

What the boys thought:

Oliver said what he enjoyed most was “making the sushi and putting my hands on the salmon. It was really soft and I really, really liked that it felt slimy”.

Our verdict:

These are wonderful sushi classes. All of the staff are lovely, super helpful, friendly and ready to get hands-on with helping.
