Join Camila on Zoom for an incredibly unique class: learn to make a type of regional sushi using tinned mackerel! Most sushi-lovers in the US are familiar with maki or nigiri, but Camila is here to teach you the art of barazushi - aka scattered sushi. Barazushi comes from the Tango region of Kyoto, where Camila learned the technique from Eiko-san, a lovely, humble, fun, energetic and senior (close to 80 years young!) cooking instructor.

Barazushi is great for the home cook - tinned fish is more affordable, there’s no working with raw fish, and no rolling required! The mackerel will get deliciously caramelized, and will pair with an array of seasonal vegetables. Chef Camila will also teach you the recipes to cook all the components of a delicious barazushi so you are ready to impress your loved ones with a beautiful meal on a moment’s notice!

Besides delicious food, here's what you can expect from an online class with Camila: Chef Camila has a broadcast-quality multi-camera setup with professional microphone and lighting, creating top notch video quality. Some visuals and graphics are included for clarity and visual aid. The class is fully interactive; Camila can see your home setup and respond to questions in real time on substitutions, cookware, technique, and the recipe. Classes are paced so that you can cook along in real time, or, if you prefer, sit back, watch, enjoy, and learn. Registrants will have access to the class video to rewatch as many times as your heart desires! Click here to see a sample video of what to expect in class.
