School is back in session at RA Sushi. The restaurant is bringing back its Sushi 101 Classes to two East Valley locations.

On August 18, the Mesa location will host a Sushi 101 Class, and on August 25 the Tempe location will be hosting a Sushi and Sake 101 Class, giving guests the option of adding a sake pairing flight. In both classes, students will learn a brief history of sushi, practice techniques for creating maki and nigiri sushi, and eat their own creations.

The Sushi 101 Class is $35 and includes a non-alcoholic beverage, miso soup, edamame, two rolls, two pieces of nigiri, a sushi rolling mat, and a voucher good for a complimentary lunch on a return visit. The Sushi and Sake 101 Class costs $40 and includes all of the items offered for the Sushi 101 Class, plus a sake flight.

Space is limited, and advance registration is required. Reach RA Sushi in Mesa at 1652 S. Val Vista Dr., Suite 101, or (480) 632-9500. RA Sushi in Tempe is at 411 S. Mill Ave., Suite 103, or call (480) 303-9800. Additional information is at
