Sushi & Sake Masterclass – Saturday 20th May
Japanese cookery teacher extraordinaire, and the highly knowledgeable Russell Jackson from Marussia Beverages will host a Sushi and Sake Masterclass on Saturday 20thMay at The Arc Speciality Food Store.
Sushi lovers in Cornwall will be distinctly aware of the lack of availability of the Japanese delicacy in restaurants around the county. Crazy really as we have access to some of the finest fish in the world which lends itself perfectly to the dish. Saying that, not all sushi must contain fish so the delectable little rice rolls can be suited to all tastes. Better still, it’s so easy to make at home, with a little know how, that crossing the border in search of an umami Asian feast is a thing of the past.
Naoko, originally from Tokyo, has a real passion for the Japanese cookery art form and the history and tradition that comes with it. She will share her skills and techniques that have been handed down through generations whilst using the finest of Cornish produce to take you on a journey of discovery about her native cuisine.
The masterclass will include a little history about the origins of both Sushi and Sake and how they are enjoyed in today’s modern culture, a hands on demonstration from Naoko where you will learn how to make (and eat!) your own Sushi (1 Fish, 1 Veggie), four different styles of premium Sake, Japanese tapas, two complimenting wines AND dessert. Phew! We’ll then have the bar open for drinks afterwards where you will have the opportunity to chat to both Naoko and Russell with any unanswered questions you may have and enjoy another glass of your favourite tipple from the evening.
This will the first event at The Arc Food Store ran by new owners BinTwo so come celebrate with us. As ever tickets are limited so book quickly.
