Advanced nigiri sushi course

Advanced nigiri sushi course is for people who want a deeper knowledge about in different cutting techniques and practice nigiri techniques.

There are some who believe that it is the same cutting techniques that are used for all types of fish.
The participants who attendant in the Advanced sushi course vol. 1 will probably be able to recognize that there are many interesting challenges. There are no two identical fish and therefore you must adjust your cutting technique to the fish. To cut silky fish slices for nigiri takes time to learn it depends on your ability to use a knife.

In 2012 I was introduced to a nigiri technique that takes 20 years to master. It is a technique where you form the individual grains of rice in a way so they melt in your mouth when you take the first bite of a silky but firm nigiri. This technique is not the one the attendee will learn to use. But close.
If you would like to become better at making nigiri it would be a good idea to have your techniques evaluated the ones you were introduced to at Nigiri sushi for beginners. There will also be plenty of time to practice the techniques with fish species that you do not normally find on a menu.

It will be some exciting hours where we go deeper.
