Everything you want to know about sushi school – all wrapped up!
WHAT IS SUSHI SCHOOL?
Sushi School is a sushi 101 for adults (with Mini Ninja classes for 5-12 year olds) – it’s interactive, fun and you don’t need to know anything about sushi (except possibly eating it) to join in!
HOW LONG DO THE CLASSES LAST?
Each class normally lasts two hours. Mini Ninja classes lasts 1 hour.
WHAT HAPPENS IN THE CLASS?
You'll sit at our counter with your rolling mat, gloves, condiments, recipe cards and ingredients all laid out in front of you. Your chef will say hi to you all, then start by showing you some fresh fish and what to look out for if you want good quality and freshness. They’ll give a display of their fish cutting skills and then get into constructing and rolling different types of sushi.
WHAT WILL I LEARN?
After seeing the fish cut, we’ll show you how to cook the perfect sushi rice at home. Then we'll show you how to roll! We'll take you through how to make some of our most popular dishes, step by step.
WHAT WILL I MAKE IN THE CLASS?
This will change depending on the number of people in the class, their dietary requirements, and if we have any specials on the menu that day. As everything is freshly made, lots of things could change, but some examples are:
DO I GET TO TAKE ANY HOME?
- Avocado Maki
- Vegetable Yasai Roll
- Salmon Nigiri
- Kaiso Gunkan
- Salmon & Avocado Hand Roll
Once you’ve rolled all your dishes, we’ll cut and box them up for you to take away. You’ll also get a professional sushi rolling mat, a guide to sushi making, a certificate and a 25% off voucher for the next time you dine in with us!
HOW DO I BOOK?
It’s as simple as booking a table to eat. Choose the YO! restaurant you’d like to visit and send us your details online. Someone from the restaurant will get back to you, to find a date that’s right for you and make your booking. You can also book a class in person at a YO! or over the phone.
HOW MUCH DO THE CLASSES COST?
They’re £30 per person or £50 for two people. Mini Ninjas are £15 per child.
CAN I BOOK A PRIVATE CLASS?
Of course! Just ask online, in person, or on the phone, and we’ll book a slice of the belt just for you. Sometimes we’re also able to run the sushi school outside of the restaurant, which is great for parties (but the price varies).
