Sushi 101 @ Roy’s Restaurant on Saturday, June 24, 11:30 am

In Japanese culture, sushi is much more than food – it’s a great art. Roy’s chefs have been honing their culinary craft for years, and now they’re ready to share their sushi secrets in an exclusive cooking class and private luncheon. Through hands-on experience and expert demonstrations, participants will craft a variety of sushi rolls featuring the light, fresh flavors of tuna, salmon, crab and lobster, along with seasonal vegetables and spices. Plus, participants will receive their own sushi kit to help re-create the experience at home and impress their friends. Space is extremely limited, so call now to make your reservation. (626) 356-4066
