Sushi Making Class | Girls Night Out!
Kenichi is located in Victory Park and is serving up world-class sushi with a modern twist. They have been voted best sushi in Dallas, 3 years in a row, so us girls were super excited to learn the art of sushi from some of the top sushi creators in town!
Upon arriving, we were directed upstairs where they were serving wine, beer and a feature cocktail before the class began. The owner introduced himself and outlined the way the event would flow. He was very nice and it was great hearing about the history of the restaurant, it’s offerings and highly-trained culinary staff.
Next the sushi Chef, Danny Lee, took the stage and walked us through all of the necessary steps. Then, two-by-two, we went up to the stage and made our own rolls with the Chef’s help. He was very energetic and knowledgeable – we loved his take-away tips!
Here are some tips we learned:
- Use only your thumbs when spreading the rice on the nori
- Water is your friend when working with sticky sushi rice
- When pressing and rolling the roll make sure it is slightly arced
- Wet your knife when it comes time to cut the sushi
- Have fun!
