Any good cooking class ends with a lavish meal, but Kaz Matsune of Breakthrough Sushi is taking it a step further. During his 2.5-hour tutorial, you'll not only get lessons in making sake cocktails and sushi rolling but also a chance to create innovative rolls during an Iron Chef-like challenge ($110). Appetizers and drinks are included in the events, which are on select Saturdays and Wednesdays starting May 2.

At the modern Kvänum kitchens across from the Transamerica Building, your class will start with an Momokawa organic-sake mojito and an assortment of appetizers, including pressed sushi with smoked salmon and a temari sushi "ball" with fish and vegetables. After a brief sake-cocktail lesson, Kaz will lead an hour-long demonstration on basic sushi-rolling techniques; you'll learn about making sushi rice, how to handle a sushi knife, and how to cut vegetables and fish. Then, in a small group, you'll make a cucumber salad, California roll, hand roll, and nigiri. Your team will show off its skills during an Iron Chef-style competition: Kaz will provide you with a set of ingredients—past classes have seen amberjack and sockeye salmon—to transform into a creative concoction. Kaz again becomes the focus as he presents traditional and new styles of sushi-making, using organic and sustainable fish whenever possible.

You'll take home a gift bag with a sushi kit, new knife skills, and the ability to conceive a dish under pressure—just like an Iron Chef.

"Kaz has a talent for getting his students engaged and enthusiastic. Besides, the results were delicious."
