A yummy deep fried roll or some yellowtail over a bed of seaweed and rice every is nothing short of a treat now and then. But before we get to the food, let’s take a look at what skills must California Restaurateurs look for in potential sushi chefs!
Sushi isn’t your normal food. It’s seafood plated as a work of art.
Being trained in kitchenware to slice and dice, preparing raw fish and working with expensive ingredients is no ordinary person’s game. Look for a certified sushi chef who has knowledge of the material he will be working with.
Sushi isn’t just raw fish anymore – and neither is it everyone’s favorite.
With deep fried tempura rolls and crispy maki offered on the menu, your sushi chef must know how to make something traditional into an absolute delight. It’ll appeal to customers and draw in seafood lovers!
3. Work Ethic
A sushi chef takes their work very seriously, if not passionately. Look for passion and motivation when you’re interviewing your next sushi chef – it’ll reflect in the food he puts out!
Working with raw fish is a serious task. A great sushi chef will not compromise on food and personal hygiene when preparing their dish, and will always maintain a sanitized work station.
5. Hands On
A great sushi chef will pick out the best ingredients for their meal prep, and will possibly have connections with vendors who will provide them with the freshest catch of the day.
