Where to buy black sesame seeds?

Sushi chef & sake sommerlier Zoë Escher
There are more and more people who have noticed black sesame seeds when ordering sushi rolls.

Abroad, black sesame seeds are very common. Several of the Danish sushi restaurants also use black sesame seeds and light sesame seeds mixed together and sprinkled over the sushi rolls.

There is not the big secret behind black sesame seeds. This is not a new variety. It is light sesame seeds that have been colored. Unfortunately, I do not know how they have been colored. Or what has been used to color the sesame seeds.
The taste is the same whether you use light or black sesame seeds.

The reason why some sushi restaurants use a mixture of light and black sesame seeds is because it is decorative and looks great on sushi rolls.

Sushi courses are still held in small classes


In the last 1½ years I have held many small open sushi courses with approx. 9 participants, and I will continue to do so. Even if the restrictions are lifted.

I do this because I found the perfect setting for my courses.

Sushi course is a course where several different ingredients are used at once, it requires more table space.
Sushi is also an eating that requires you to have room to move, ie. you can move your arms freely when cooking.

The advantage of the small teams is clearly that Zoë has more time for the individual participants and, the many good questions that arise during the course.

I can see that the attendants are enjoying that there is plenty of space. They relax and can focus on acquiring the skills needed to make tasty sushi at home in their own kitchen.

It is not only sushi courses that are run in small groups. This applies to all courses held by Sushi Chef Zoë Escher.
