How to make sushi rice and Chirashi sushi

  • 30th April 2016 (Saturday) | 10:30am – 12:30pm
  • $120/person

Among participants at Tokyo Sushi Academy Singapore, many are sushi-lovers who are keen to get their hands on making sushi themselves.

The most often asked question we hear from our participants is: How do I make sushi rice?

It is not an exaggeration to say that the quality of sushi rice is the key factor in determining how delicious a piece of sushi is.

Rice is of supreme importance to sushi.

If the rice does not taste good, the sushi will not taste good even if you pair it up with the freshest and most delicious piece of fish ever.
