UrbanBeat is hosting a create-your-own sushi event on Thursday night, the kick-off of a new monthly culinary experience featuring celebrity chef Stuart Christoff and mixologist Andrea Valerio.
Tickets are $85 and include a craft cocktail by Valerio, passed appetizers, two hot and cold Japanese- inspired charcuterie displays and pre-made sushi.
Participants will hear a presentation by Christoff on sushi origin and etiquette, as well as a demonstration on choosing ingredients and cooking, cutting and rolling techniques before rolling their own sushi.
Live music from Clique Vocals will cap the evening. Dan and Kelly will perform classic jazz ballads of the 1920s-50s, plus a mix of pop and contemporary.
Christoff, a Grand Rapids native now based in Lansing, is best known for his Asian culinary influence. The chef started out at Maru Sushi in Grand Rapids and has experience cooking at restaurants in Bangkok. He served as the executive chef for Hong Kong Academy International School in Hong Kong until 2020.
