What You’ll Do

Sushi chefs are like artists, sculpting aesthetically-pleasing meals with sticky rice, nori, and fish. You will find those and other fresh ingredients waiting for you when you arrive in Chef Bibi Kasrai’s kitchen at Harvard Cookin’ Girl. Over the course of a 90-minute, hands-on class, she teaches you and your fellow students techniques to craft your own edible art.

  • Learn the Art of Sushi
    With expert instruction, you’ll learn the fundamentals of miso soup, roll and cut California rolls and prepare green tea ice cream.

    After preparing your meal, enjoy the results while chatting with your fellow students.

    Feel free to bring your favorite wine—there’s no corkage fee.

  • In the Neighborhood

 Bibi Karasi Bibi Kasrai
Owner, Harvard Cookin’ Girl

For Bibi Kasrai, trading her corporate career for a career in cooking was an easy decision, especially considering the pivotal role food has always played in her life. She details her relationship with cooking in her memoir-slash-cookbook The Spice Whisperer, as well as in a feature in The Guardian. Californians can receive culinary instruction from Bibi herself, who founded Harvard Cookin’ Girl to teach visitors how to prepare the cuisines of Japan, Ethiopia, France, Italy, Spain, and myriad other regions.
