To Do: Trevor Corson Presents All Things Sushi

This Saturday, Oct. 17, join sushi expert Trevor Corson at CulinAerie for a hands-on sushi class. Corson, aka "the sushi concierge," is the author of "The Story of Sushi: An Unlikely Saga of Raw Fish and Rice," a guest on Iron Chef America and a leading sushi expert.

The class starts at 6:30 p.m. and will cover:

• How to be a star at the sushi bar: Tips for participating in the culture of a sushi experience, just as a Japanese connoisseur would do, including how to get the sushi chef on your side, how to get him to serve you, and what to ask for.

• Discussion of traditional and regional sushi: nigiri, maki, te-maki, battleship and inside out rolls; miso soup with dashi; nikiri sauce (the sauce that really goes with sushi)

• Overview of sake and other beverages in the culture of Japanese cuisine

• How to make sushi. The class will participate in a sushi-making exercise, then enjoy the fruits of their labors.

The class is $145 per person and includes a signed copy of "The Story of Sushi," along with a variety of sushi, sake, Japanese beer and green tea.
