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.
For our very first event to be held at The Arc, Hawksfield, we’re super excited to be teaming up with Naoko Kashiwagi (Naoko’s Kitchen), Japanese cookery teacher extraordinaire, and the highly knowledgeable Russell Jackson from Marussia Beverages to host a Sushi and Sake Masterclass on Saturday 20th May.
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.
Thanks to some incredibly generous support from Russell and Marussia Beverages for this event, we are able to offer you a really fantastic selection of premium Sakes from their Akashi-Tai range and keep the ticket price to a very modest £60pp.
