What You'll Get
The carefully rolled nature of sushi makes it ideal for starting snowballs, which is why it's commonly known as "snowman heart." Learn to build a snow pal with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a sushi-making class at Tokyo Japanese Restaurant in Montclair (an $80 value). Classes are held on Saturday from noon to 2 p.m.
Versed in rolling extensive sushi variations, the chefs at Tokyo Japanese Restaurant impart their culinary acumen during the beginners sushi-making class. Participants each complete a sushi roll from supplied ingredients including seafood, sauces, and rice before giving their creation a delicious-sounding name such as Phoenix or My First Rice Sandwich. Tokyo Japanese Restaurant also loans students all necessary tools, giving pupils hands-on experience in operating the implements of cyclindrical edibles. Each class limits participation to 20 students so aspiring chefs have enough room to set up a live webfeed of their work and show their disciples how giant chopsticks can be used as stilts. Those with ignited appetites can run home to set up a sushi station or return when the restaurant opens at 4:30 p.m. (no dining value included in today's deal).
