Cooking classes return to Tsunami

by Elizabeth Rose

Learn to roll with the pros. Tsunami is opening up its kitchen again so everyday eaters can learn the tricks for making professional-grade sushi.

The class, priced at $50 per person, includes hands-on instruction of building, rolling, cutting and eating rolls - yes, there is more to it than dunking each piece in soy sauce. The class centers around a meal that includes a California roll, which you will make yourself, plus one other regular roll of your choice. With it comes edmamame, miso soup and a drink (non-alcoholic, unfortunately).

But you won't walk away with a full stomach and empty hands. Goodie bags include a Tsunami koozie, a sushi rolling mat and an instructional booklet that outlines the skills taught in class.

Reserve your spot by emailing [email protected], but they're offering the class at the Baton Rouge location, as well, so make sure to denote whether you'll be attending in Lafayette (LAF) or in Baton Rouge (BR) in the subject line.
