We 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.
“Wow!!! From the very start Ed was great with communicating and explaining all the ins and outs of the sushi experience. He had a really upbeat personality that made the two hour class highly enjoyable. We came ready to learn and eat and we were full halfway through the class lol but still so eager to learn more and taste more. Ed Did an amazing job at following CDC guidelines and making sure that we felt safe given the pandemic. The entire area was sanitized and cleaned to perfection upon our arrival and he continuously cleaned throughout making sure that he had a mask and we had gloves if we wanted to use them. My boyfriend and I highly recommend this experience! It was worth every penny!!!"

"We had a wonderful experience with Ed and Keo, would highly recommend! They set up a live sushi bar at a private residence (Airbnb) and made everything seamless and easy. Their food is incredibly fresh and beautifully presented. They served 10 of us and there was more than enough food and leftovers."
"We learned, we laughed, and we enjoyed yummy sushi. Ed is very knowledgeable, patient and kind. Pairing his culinary talent with an onsite wine expert made the experience that much more enjoyable. We made great memories. Thanks, Ed!"

"So much fun first-time sushi rock & rolling! There are so many ways to experience Wine Country, this was one of my best favorite highlights. From traditional roll making and poke to non-traditional omakase, you’ll discover the unique techniques of Japanese cooking. Executive Chef Ed ensured there was never a dull moment from learning and laughs to libations poured from Jim, friendly owner of Seamus Wines. Bring your appetite for learning and don’t be afraid to ask questions. Even as a farmer and avid home chef, I gained so much more knowledge from this. Great for first dates, groups or team learning. Highly recommend - learning is living!"

"This experience surpassed even our highest expectations. What a treat! Ed and Keo were fantastic hosts, and had everything flawlessly prepared. We did this experience as a team building exercise, and everyone LOVED it. The food was delicious and making it was so much fun. I would recommend this experience to anyone looking to learn how to make incredible sushi + poke, and have a great time doing it. Ed was also so accommodating and professional. So many thanks to both Ed and Keo - this was the highlight of our offsite."

"I absolutely enjoyed the experience and hospitality from Chef Ed - this is unlikely any culinary courses I have taken. Very intimate and personable. One of the highlights was we went to Chef Ed's garden and picked out ingredients for the class - unique and rare experience, Chef Ed took time to explain the garden and get us to taste a variety of vegetables so you really get a sense of what the ingredients taste like, and what you can do with it. We got a chance to learn about tuna and various - poke, nigiri, rolls etc - along the way we got to learn about Chef Ed's culinary and life stories, and how that affected his cooking style. It was wonderful to learn about his thinking process when creating various dishes and how he play with flavors. The demonstration and hands-on preparation along with the Chef is great. We learned a lot! I highly recommend this experience. It was fantastic"
