SUSHISAMBAÂ Coral Gables is welcoming spring with the launch of SUSHI & SAKE 101. The two-hour interactive class introduces guests to the history and traditions of sake, the art of sushi making and offers an in-depth instruction about these two worldly traditions from resident experts.Â Classes are held every last Tuesday of the month from 7 p.m. to 9p.mÂ and areÂ $85 per guest.Â To reserve your space, please call 305-448-4990.
The class consists of a two-part educational experience. The sake portion is led by SUSHISAMBAâ€™s sake sommelier and includes five flights with an introduction to the history of sake, its common myths, pairing tips and more. From aromatic to aged to sparkling, guests will be exposed to a diverse range of sake from new prefectures every month – be it â€œsweet and spicyâ€ or “rich and round with a sweet caramel finish.â€ Participants will not leave hungry and should bring their appetites! Throughout the class, they will enjoy a selection of SUSHISAMBAâ€™s signature dishes, a variety of sushi rolls, edamame, tempura and sashimi.
In the second part of the class, participants will gain insider sushi-making tips from SUSHISAMBA Coral Gablesâ€™ Executive Sushi Chef Yasuo Tujimori, including an introduction to the history and traditions of sushi, followed by a demonstration on the selection and preparation of raw fish. But thatâ€™s not all – the class will conclude with all participants creating, and enjoying, sushi rolls of their choice! The students will leave the class with an informative take-away booklet designed to help apply their knowledge at home.
