What you'll do
I invite you to a winery lounge nestled in the charming wine region of Kenwood. Only 20 min drive from downtown Sonoma or a 15 min drive from Santa Rosa. We specially chose this location for the wines and food pairing. Séamus tasting lounge is where we will teach our class in the winter months. We will demonstrate some of the dishes I have perfected on my restaurant's menu. I will demo step by step how to create unique sushi with fresh high quality tuna, salmon , Hamachi and other species of fish. We will pair each bite with wine to complement the meal's flavors. Along the way, I will teach about different types of Tuna species and why Blue-fin, Big-eye and yellowfin tuna is distinctively different from all other fish on the market. I will include recipes and methods for you to continue practicing yourself at home. It's how I was able to learn and I hope to share my love with the rest of the world.
I've been a chef and restaurateur for the last 27 years. I specialized in sushi under the training of Japanese and Hawaiian chefs. I have worked in kitchens through out the world. After owning and operating a sushi/Asian restaurant in the town of Sonoma for 12 years, it was time to pursue my passion of teaching. My take on sushi is heavily influenced by Hawaiian comfort food and the meticulous presentation of sushi as an art form. We will focus on sushi basic techniques and a general education on fish species, farming, how to source and where to source.

Where you'll be
Winter months we will host our classes at www.seamuswines.com in Kenwood. Kenwood is one of my favorite spots as a chef and wine drinker. Its the main reason the Italians migrated here in the yearly 1900 as its climate and topography are just like Tuscany. Summer months, Cornerstone Sonoma http://www.cornerstonesonoma.com/. Most classes will be moved to the Sunset Outdoor kitchen.
