Forget DIY and be prepared to RIY: roll it yourself. Izumi is hosting an Interactive Maki Making Dinner on Monday, July 21st at 7:00 p.m. The event will be a night of drinking, eating, learning and then more eating.
To start off, chef Corey Baver (ex of Morimoto, Buddakan and Pod) will be giving guests a complimentary glass of Sake Sangria and hors d’oeuvres to enjoy. But if one drink won’t cut it for you, you’re welcome to bring your own.
Guests will then get hands-on instructions from Baver & Co. regarding proper techniques and proportions to make the rolled sushi. And the best part of the night? You get to nom on your creation later. It's like eating your homework, but tastier (hopefully).
Baver spoke about the event, saying, "I wanted to host a special night dedicated to guests by giving them a truly interactive and intimate culinary experience. It's a great way to have some fun and learn how to make superior maki while having a few laughs."
The event is $50 per person and limited to 20 guests. Reservations can be made by calling 215-271-1222.
