My friend and I were thrilled to step into Globus Chashitsu KeiSui-An yesterday. Globus Washitsu had another fabulous event. “Sushi demonstration with chef Andy Matsuda & Tea Ceremony with Tea Master Souheki“. Master Sushi Chef Matsuda has worked in the finest sushi restaurants in major US cities. In 2002, he established the Sushi Chef Institute which is located in Los Angeles. He has taught the art of sushi for beginners to professional all over the globe. It was pleasure to watch his work and participate in conversation at the Tea Ceremony. Before he started the demo, he explained the history of sushi and sushi culture in modern times. It was interesting to hear how it has integrated into American culture. He also talked about using fresh local produce, which is essential in sushi making. He said it is his responsibility in passing  over 100 years historic Japanese sushi culture to the next generation. It is the same that he learned by having it passed to him through older generations of great Sushi Chefs. He announces: “I am the messenger!”
