Chef Osamu “Fuji” Fujita, Master Sushi Chef of Loews Hotels will head up a brand-new “SushiSKool” for kids at Loews Lake Las Vegas Resort. Held on Saturdays throughout the summer, the one-hour class is designed to teach the next generation of sushi lovers (ages 5 through teens) the basics of ordering, using chopsticks, eating different types of sushi and sushi etiquette.
Priced at $20 per child, the SushiSKool classes will be held at the Sushi Bar at Marssa restaurant, Saturdays from Memorial Day through Labor Day. For accompanying moms, Chef Fuji’s “Mommy Maki” add-on includes wine and an assortment of maki rolls (priced at $25 per person with a child in the class).
A third generation sushi chef whose father was the personal chef for the Emperor of Japan, Chef Fuji began his career as an apprentice to one of only three master chefs in Tokyo. He is the only sushi chef in the US to earn the Japanese Chefs Association’s recognition of achievement in 2006-2007. Visit www.loewshotels.com.
