The Road to Becoming a Sushi Chef: Japan Vs. L.A.

The Road to Becoming a Sushi Chef: Japan Vs. L.A. | Chef | Scoop.it
In Japan, it takes years of work to earn the title of Sushi Chef. In L.A.? Not so much.
Jay Ver's insight:

Training to become a sushi chef in LA will only last 12 weeks. However, the training in Japan is going to last a decade. In Japan, you wont be touching any seafood after your first year of training. For your first year, you'll only be mopping floors and washing dishes. For your second year, you'll learn to fillet small seafood. You will then be promoted to shikomi wich means food prepper during your third or fourth year of training. Then during your fifth year, you'll start dealing with sushi rice. The year after, you'll have the opportunity to work behind the bar, where you get to create rolls for takeout only. Then in a year or 2, you have the permission to speak to customers. After a decade of training, you're a full-fledged sushi chef.
