In case you didn’t know it, Japanese food is awesome, and Vancouver has a pretty fantastic sushi scene. But how many of us make it for ourselves at home?

Uhhhh…yeah. Sushi is a pretty serious art and science, but according to some important folks coming in from Japan, it’s perhaps easier than we think.

Japan’s Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF) has chosen Vancouver as the only Canadian city on their global tour of Shoku-Iku (food education) events, and they’re offering a free hands-on sushi-making class on November 8.

The event is called “Anyone Can Make Sushi” and the course will be led by Chef Takayuki Omi, Raw Bar Chef from Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel (who happens to make some stunning sushi). The 90-minute class will go over the basics of Japanese cuisine, then move into the sushi-making. There will be two sessions offered (11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 to 3 p.m.).

Space is limited to 25 people per session, and interested participants must reserve a spot via e-mail (to [email protected]), and indicate which session they’d like.

Anyone Can Make Sushi

When: Sunday, November 8 (11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 to 3 p.m.)
Where: Nikkei Centre, 6688 Southoaks Crescent, Burnaby
Cost: FREE

UPDATE NOV. 4: We’ve heard from the organizers that both classes are booked to capacity and the waiting lists are quite full, as well.
