Sushi Rolling Workshop with Red's Best


Sushi Rolling Workshop with Red's Best


Presented by The Trustees


Join us in The KITCHEN at the Boston Public Market for a culinary exploration that celebrates New England fishermen and the fresh seafood they pull daily from cold Massachusetts waters. This hands-on sushi workshop is hosted in partnership with Red's Best and will be paired with wine tastings from the Massachusetts Wine Shop.


Students will learn about the traditions of sushi and working with raw fish using the freshest local and sustainably-caught tuna and salmon from Red’s Best. Participants will learn techniques and tips while creating two different sushi rolls along with a traditional Japanese salad to round out the meal.


Guided by Chef Jen, who assisted with the sushi program at Legal Harborside, attendees will learn about local seafood and the proper techniques for rolling sushi, along with how to shop for the right ingredients. Participants will leave with their own sushi rolling mat, ready to roll their own sushi at home.


In addition to learning a new cooking style, you'll enjoy tastes of three local New England wines that pair perfectly with recipes we’ll be making, courtesy of The Massachusetts Wine Shop.

Our hands-on cooking classes are structured as a group learning experience; you’ll work with other students to create a seasonal meal led by our professional chef instructors. We focus on learning new cooking styles and techniques to increase your confidence and enjoyment in your own kitchen. Here are a few things to know before booking a class with us:



  • Each class is centered on the local, seasonal farmers and artisans of the Boston Public Market, so menus may change slightly based on what’s available the day of the event.

  • During each class, you’ll learn 2 or 3 recipes, you’ll work with between 2 and 4 other students to create each one, and you’ll enjoy a plentiful taste of each.

  • Classes are usually between 2 and 2.5 hours long, unless otherwise noted.

  • Please be prepared to be on your feet, standing at a table, and cooking for the duration of class.

  • We recommend comfortable, non-slip, and closed-toe shoes.
