The best way to learn how to make great sushi is by actually doing it. That’s why Chef Devaux will keep the focus on the practical work. Still, next to skills there will be know-how involved. If only because it’s good to know how to do things. But mostly it’s better if you also know why to do things in a certain way.

Don’t worry. This is not going to be like school. You’re not going to get homework. Not really J As long as you follow the instructions and regularly practice – and why shouldn’t you, considering you get to eat the delicious results –  we’re sure you too can become a Sushi Master!
