Sushi is an allegory for childhood: the pure rice symbolizing innocence, spicy wasabi embodying a tendency to cry, and the seaweed representing tight, constricting onesies. Relive your youth one roll at a time with today's Groupon: for $45, you get a sushi-making class at Kyoko Japanese Restaurant in Fayetteville (an $89 value). With experience creating a host of eye-catching and appetizing rice-wrapped morsels on the restaurant's regular menu, Kyoko's master chef Yusuke Honda imparts skills and wisdom to nori novices in an enlightening two-hour class. The session opens with a brief history of the grain-laden luxury followed by an overview of the sushi-making process, including rice preparation, nigiri- and maki-making techniques, and how to track down the mythical wasabi-elk. Sushi gurus provide all necessary materials, and trainees complete their epicurean enlightenment by dining on their newly developed delicacies. The two-hour classes take place Saturdays from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. throughout February and March.
- The food is excellent. The Sashimi is always fresh. The rolls are as tasty as any I have ever had. – eperriello, TripAdvisor
- The owner-sushi chef is friendly and accommodating. If you ask him to use his imagination, he will present a creative assortment of sushi. The biggest problem is that I tend to eat too much of it--and I still want more! – cofarb, Citysearch
