You Know How We Roll | Sushi & Sake 101

An intimate group gathered on Saturday, Jan. 22, for Sushi & Sake 101, RA Sushi's interactive, educational (and tasty!) crash course in sushi and sake.

Hosted at RA Sushi's Pembroke Pines location in The Shops at Pembroke Gardens, Sushi & Sake 101 included a sushi and sake history lesson, sushi rolling lessons, sake flight pairings, a non-alcoholic beverage, edamame, miso soup, and a pre-stamped lunch card good toward future lunch visits.

As attendees created their own rolls, RA’s expert sushi chefs lead the sushi portion came around to everyone’s station for one-on-one attention, answering questions and lending a hand for the tricky parts.

So, what was on the menu? California Roll, Shrimp "Ebi" Nigiri Sushi, and Tootsy Maki, one of RA’s most popular rolls, made with kani kama crab mix, shrimp and cucmber rolled and topped with crunchy tempura bits, and drizzled with a sweet eel sauce.

Guests sampled a wide variety of sake from RA’s extensive sake selection, led by Bar Manager Evan. The class finished strong with a sake bomb with the guest’s choice of sake and Kirin Light, and a Japanese countdown.
