Discover the Best Sushi Making Classes in Los Angeles

Sushi is a traditional Japanese meal that has been gaining popularity around the world. It typically consists of vinegared rice with raw fish or vegetables, though it can have a variety of different ingredients. Sushi originated in Japan over 2,000 years as a way to preserve fish, and over time, it has evolved into a beloved meal for many people worldwide. There are numerous variations to the traditional sushi roll in countries that have adopted it, which feature ingredients and flavors that may not be present in traditional Japanese sushi. In the US, common additions to sushi include cream cheese, avocado, and tempura. 

While the art of sushi is rich in history, anyone can jump in and learn the skills behind this delicious cuisine. Whether you're looking to become a sushi chef or just want to learn to make your own rolls at home, Los Angeles has sushi making classes for all levels.

Why You Should Learn Sushi Making in Los Angeles

Learning a new skill is always an exciting experience, and learning how to make sushi is no exception. Making sushi can be a fun activity for family dinners or date nights, as well as a great way to tap into a larger community of food enthusiasts. Whether through a club, local organization, or meet, learning to make sushi can expand your culinary knowledge and introduce you to new friends with similar interests. Having a hobby is one of the best ways to lower stress levels, and learning to make sushi can be a great way to start your wellness journey.

Additionally, those who have an interest in a career in food service may find taking a sushi making class to be a great introduction. Sushi is an ever-growing cuisine, and with the proper training, aspiring chefs can get a jumpstart in their culinary careers. In Los Angeles, sushi making classes offer the chance to learn from experienced chefs and develop your roll-making skills while discovering new ingredients and flavors.

In-Person Sushi Making Classes in Los Angeles

There are several classes in Los Angeles for those interested in learning how to make sushi. These hands-on, interactive classes provide an excellent opportunity to learn the basics and create your own rolls in just a few hours. One popular option is the Make Your Own Sushi class from CocuSocial Cooking Classes. In the two-hour class, participants aged 21 and above learn how to make salmon rolls, shrimp tempura rolls, and veggie rolls. The hands-on session covers topics such as selecting fish, preparing rice, and choosing the appropriate vegetables to use. It's an ideal option for beginners or those with minimal sushi making experience. 

The school is located in Orange, California, which is a short drive from Los Angeles and allows students to purchase drinks right on-site rather than in a BYOB format. The average class size for this course falls around 20 students, with a cost of $62 per participant. Chef Kitkat is the instructor for the class and is a professionally trained sushi chef and French cuisine expert.

CocoSocial Cooking Classes also offer Intro to the Art of Sushi with Chef Vic for $62 per participant. This two-hour sushi making class is for adults aged 21 and up, and it takes place in Westlake Village. In this course, students learn the fundamentals of rolling sushi and detailed techniques for making California rolls, spicy tuna rolls, and a surprise roll with the chef's "catch of the day." You'll also get tips on preparing the best sushi rice, using the right ingredients, and practicing knife safety. Chef Vic has over 20 years of experience with cuisines from across the globe, making this offering from CocoSocial a great way to learn the basics of sushi making in Los Angeles. 

Virtual Sushi Making Classes 

While in-person classes provide a hands-on learning experience, this is also achievable through virtual courses. Online sushi making classes still provide students with real time interaction, engaging demonstrations, and personalized attention. Some additional benefits of learning online to keep in mind when selecting classes are convenience, affordability, flexibility, and the opportunity to learn from chefs worldwide. 

However, it's essential to consider the drawbacks of learning to make sushi virtually before signing up for a class. One key factor to remember is that you may have to have all ingredients and kitchen tools on hand to fully participate and follow along. Additionally, it may be difficult to find classes that offer the same level of one-on-one instruction as in-person classes and the same ability to connect with others. Be sure to weigh the pros and cons of learning to make sushi virtually before deciding which option is best for you.

One top-rated virtual sushi making class is the Virtual Vegetarian Sushi Rolling class from Food Craft online, where participants learn how to make vegan sushi rolls in a step-by-step manner. The two-hour course comes with a kit that contains all the necessary ingredients and is shipped to the participants. The kit includes everything you need to make sushi rice, spicy mayo, and uramaki. To take the class, you'll need some essential kitchen tools like measuring spoons, bowls, a peeler, and a chopping board.

Participants can also take the Japanese Online Class #2 with Aiko from The League of Kitchens. This class teaches students how to make hand rolls and flavorful dipping sauces in the Temaki Zushi-style. The class will focus on the important aspects of making hand rolls, including preparing miso soup and seasoning vegetables. Chef Aiko encourages a welcoming atmosphere for asking questions and engaging in meaningful conversations. Her cooking classes will feature recipes from her family that will require students to purchase their own ingredients in advance. A shopping list will be provided to assist participants in preparing for class, and the needed items can typically be found at most local grocery stores.
