On Tuesday, Feb. 9, SushiSamba Rio will host SUSHI + SAKE101, a two hour interactive teaching and tasting event where you can learn what it takes to become a “master sushi chef." Well, maybe not a master - that would require years of washing rice, sharpening knives and studying fish. But they’ll at least show you some basic differences between types of sushi, and will outfit you with the building blocks of assembling your own maki and nigiri at home.

Sake and snacks - including sushi, tempura, edamame and sushi rolls will also be served.

Class starts at 6:30 p.m. and costs $75 per person.
