We recently did a Yo Sushi! sushi-making workshop for 2 at the St Paul's branch. It was a really fun way to spend an evening, and a very memorable hands-on experience. The class began at 6, and we were guided to the back of the restaurant where there were a few booths with the sushi mats, gloves and ingredients already laid out. We were chosen it would be better to be seated facing the chef - and this was a really appreciated handy tip otherwise you constantly have to twist and turn your head to see what the chef's doing. It was a small class of about 12/14 - which was the perfect number, and we made far more than I expected (at least 2 or 3 meals worth!) so I think it's definitelyvalue for money. Our sushi chef was great. She really explained out the tips, techniques and methods for each style. Sometimes telling us what they meant in Japanese - and why things were done in a certain way. She even came round to help and guide us after each demonstration. There was a 15 minute break in the middle, so people could stretch their legs, use the bathroom, try some of their sushi - this was well-needed as the class was quite fast paced. Participants were allowed free Green Tea or Miso Soup also which was given to us during the break, so that was really nice. And we all had glasses at our table so could keep drinking from the handy table taps Yo Sushi! restaurants provide. At the end of the class our chef offered to cut our sushi up for us, and she arranged it really nicely on our container plates - which came with lids. As the lids were loose- I'd definitely ask for some extra tape to secure the lid to the plate! The whole class was seated - which I really appreciated, as it was comfortable. It got slightly restrictive at times due to the booths - but it was also a fun opportunity to talk to the pair opposite as we only came as a party of 2. I'd definitely recommend this workshop to sushi lovers, or those looking to find new creative ways of easy cooking-  as you can buy most of the ingredients in their ready state (just needs to be chopped) it's more about learning assembly techniques. Really enjoyable evening, and the St Paul's location is a stone's throw from the station.
