Sushi-Rolling Class at Saku Hoboken
On Tuesday nights through February 1, Saku Hoboken is offering a sushi-rolling class. Over an hour and a half, students will learn to make three types of rolls, as well as rice vinegar for sushi rice. “All you need to bring is yourself and your hunger to learn,” says owner Daniel Grey.
The class is taught by Bridget-San, a CIA graduate and apprentice of head sushi chef Eddie-Sensei. Students will make a tuna roll (seaweed outside); California roll (rice outside); and salmon avocado handroll (rolled without a sushi mat). For an additional cost, students ages 21 and older can order drinks to enjoy while they learn to roll.
Saku Hoboken opened in November 2018. It is known for its innovative sushi, eclectic cocktails and extensive sake, wine and beer list. A popular date night spot for locals, it specializes in new Japanese and Asian fusion cuisine.
Grey notes that sushi is a lean source of nutrition, including omega 3 fatty acids.
“Think of sushi as a supplement, providing these much-needed healthy fats, particularly when the other choices contain fats that don’t support good cardiovascular health,” he says.
Cost: $45 (tickets on Eventbrite). Location: 936 Park Ave., Hoboken, NJ. For more information, visit SakuHoboken.com.
