The are few cons about sushi, but the two most common annoyances about the Japanese delicacy is its expense and the scarcity of great quality sushi readily available in the capital. Looking to kill two birds with one stone, UNI — a Japanese and Peruvian Nikkei-style restaurant in Belgravia — has introduced a series of sushi making classes for west Londoners who’d literally rather take things into their own hands. The two hour-long monthly workshops, which start 14th March and continue through to August, will see UNI’s experienced chefs guide students through rice cooking, techniques, equipment and ingredient advice. With green tea served throughout, each attendant will have the opportunity to make their own nigiri, maki and sashimi, which they’ll take home along with a sushi-making mat. A recipe booklet including tips, tricks, plus a list of ingredients used will be sent as a follow-up via email. Each class is priced at £35; not bad when you consider a couple pieces of sushi at Nobu will probably set you back the same.
