Chirashi sushi(called Chirashi Zushi in Japan and literally means “scattered sushi”), is usually made for celebrations such as Girls Day(3rd March),New year celebrations or Birthday parties as it’s a very colorful and cheerful looking dish.

You can keep with the traditional ingredients, or use a variety of ingredients to make your own original dish! It can also be made as a fish or vegetarian based dish.

I will teach you the traditional style of Chirashi sushi, how to prepare the sushi rice and prepare and make the various toppings. I will demonstrate how we decorate it nicely (especially the carrot flower).

I’ll also show you how to make a green vegetable&sesame paste side dish, as well as home made miso soup(using homemade miso paste).
