Sushi Showdown!
It's the 2nd Annual California State Sushi Competition! Enjoy an exciting and elegant evening honoring the deep traditions and of sushi and the amazing ingenuity and creativity that chefs are bringing to modern sushi restaurants. Join our emcees Narsai David, famed KCBS-AM Food Critic, Randall Selland of The Kitchen Restaurant in Sacramento and Tim Johnson of the California Rice Commission for this action-packed evening!

Tickets are $50 and include admission to the live sushi-rolling competition among eight of California's top sushi chefs, amazing sushi, culinary dishes featuring California rice, a wine and beer bar (two drink tickets per admission), sake-tasting and taiko drumming. Roving cameras will project all the action on the floor onto a huge screen over the stage and Taro Arai from Sacramento's Mikuni Japanese Restaurant and Sushi Bar will guest-host an amateur 'mini sushi competition.'

Come and support Sacramento's own Sushi Chef Watanabe of Taka's Sushi and Kru!
