Japanese Culinary Studio NYC’s owner Misako Sassa teaches students to craft traditional, healthy sushi and cooked Japanese fare, customizing her culinary curricula to their interests. In each three-hour class, Misako elucidates cooking techniques before leading her students onward to tame rebellious ingredients and forge a six-course meal. Protégés build appetizer dishes of spinach ohitashi flecked with sesame seeds, followed by daikon radish simmered with red miso sauce, dressing up both to delight eyes like a job as Waldo’s bodyguard. Students stir tofu and seasonal vegetables into miso soup, and roll makimono sushi’s rice sheets around spicy tuna, pickled plum, and shiso leaf. Mold rice into smooth mounds to lure raw tuna, salmon, and sea urchin, or shrimp, eel, and egg onto nigiri sushi. For the final course, pupils balance out savory notes with tofu panna cotta or green-tea-soaked truffles.

Students take notes and mold raw fare around a communal table in the private classroom and chatter over the kitchen stove during demonstrations, sipping green tea or sparkling plum wine all the while. Class sizes are limited to four, giving Misako time for individual instruction and students time to whittle their own chopsticks. Misako can accommodate many food allergies and preferences by altering some recipes as needed.
