What to Expect
The day begins with a brief introduction to life at Billingsgate, followed by an escorted market visit learning how to identify quality and the many species of seafood - but in this case - specifically fish suitable for sashimi or popular in Japanese cuisine. Breakfast is served in the school kitchens when you can ask further questions.This is a fun and informative day where we aim to cover as many aspects of sushi and sashimi preparation as possible.
After breakfast we give a short introduction to the day and covering the techniques and recipes to be cooked.During a hands-on practical session you are guided through the preparation of sushi and sashimi. Advice is given on how to cook sushi rice to perfection and then with Silla's innovative style - there is an opportunity to create a selection of sushi and sashimi. Some of this is enjoyed for lunch the rest is packed away for you to take home.
