First ieat Sushi Appreciation Workshop

Report and photos by Joao

Meet and Eat Session
Recently some readers got a crash course in sushi at the ieatishootipost Sushi Appreciation Workshop. Sushi and sushi-know-how were dished out in equal measure by chef Thomas Kok of Hokkaido Sushi Restaurant. Throughout the course of the afternoon

  • We learnt the difference between left-facing sole fish and right-facing sole fish
  • We learnt the difference between maguro, chutoro, and otoro
  • We ate all three
  • We watched chef Thomas cut up a range of fish (with running commentary)
  • We ate said fish that chef Thomas broke down
  • We were warned to never order eel sushi and egg at the start of a sushi meal
  • We ate some eel sushi
  • We ate some egg
  • We had some myths about Japanese wagyu dispelled
  • We ate some Japanese wagyu
  • We ate some more
Astute readers will notice a trend.

In spite of all the eating that went on, I’d like to think that we managed to get a bit of an education. Even more importantly, in partnership with MHC Asia we were able to raise over $4,000 for charity through this session. Hey, anything for a good cause, right?
