Join us in The KITCHEN at the Boston Public Market for a culinary exploration that celebrates New England fishermen and the fresh seafood they pull daily from cold Massachusetts waters. This hands-on workshop is hosted in partnership with Red's Best and will be paired with wine tastings from the Massachusetts Wine Shop.
The Sushi Rolling Class will teach participants to prepare and roll their own raw seafood sushi rolls using the freshest, local and sustainably-caught tuna and salmon. Our expert sushi chef will guide participants through the techniques and tricks to crafting the perfect sushi roll. Participants will create and eat two different sushi rolls using Red’s Best seafood and produce from the Boston Public Market + will create a traditional Japanese salad to round out the meal.
Guided by Chef Jen - the former sushi chef at Legal Harborside - you’ll learn about local seafood and the proper techniques for rolling sushi, along with how to shop for the right ingredients to replicate these techniques at home. Every attendee will take home their sushi rolling mat to reuse at home.
In addition to learning a new cooking style, you'll enjoy tastes of three local New England wines that pair perfectly with recipes we’ll be making, courtesy of The Massachusetts Wine Shop.
