Chef Garrin is an international Chef & Global Ambassador in Nova Scotia who has been offering virtual cooking classes since the pandemic hit last year. He originally offered in-person cooking classes and dinner parties at his home in Eastern Passage but has since modified his offerings to provide at-home date nights to guests all over the world via Zoom.

We have been long-time fans of Chef Garrin’s cooking classes and have attended various events from his Italian Pasta class to a Seafood Chowder class and my personal favourite, a “Mi Amore” Valentine’s Cooking class consisting of a 3-course meal. Yesterday we had the opportunity to participate in Chef Garrin’s Virtual Sushi Roll class and I had so much fun! We made Kappaki and Uramaki Dragon Rolls which were pretty amazing if I do say so myself. We also learned various culinary skills including how to properly season sushi rice, how to plate our dishes and knife techniques. The recipes were beginner-friendly but we felt like pro Chefs following along and making this beautiful dishes ourselves.
