Top Sushi Chef related questions

Depending on the requirements, a sushi chef can accommodate your needs within the day or the next day. However, do consider that some tasks may need more preparation and should be scheduled in advance. For parties and big batches of cooking, we suggest booking weeks or even a month in advance to make sure that your sushi chef already has that day reserved for you.

Cooking services on Airtasker range from all sorts of cuisines and delicacies to satisfy any craving. A full Japanese spread of sushi, sashimi, tempura, gyoza, ramen and more can please any guest. If you’re in the mood for Korean, Italian, Chinese or Thai, those are possible options, too! Just indicate your requirements and preferences when you put up a task to connect you with the right Tasker for the job.

Yes. You can hire a sushi chef for a party, whether at your home or a nearby venue. There are plenty of sushi chefs on Airtasker capable of catering to your dinner party. Some Taskers can even prepare sushi on the spot as a form of entertainment for your guests. That will elevate the experience as compared to getting sushi takeaway.

A sushi master goes through years of training and practice. In Japan, making sushi is considered an art. The freshness and taste of sushi are not just based on the ingredients but also on the chef’s expertise. Nowadays, sushi preparation has become mainstream, so it’s easier to find a skilled and experienced sushi chef near you.

Yes. When planning the menu for your party or your weekly meals, your sushi chef will ask about your preferences. Chefs can prepare sushi with vegan and pescetarian ingredients without sacrificing the taste. Your Tasker can consider all your dietary requirements, allergies, and intolerances, so it’s highly suggested that you include these details right away when you put up a task.

Taskers are not limited to personal and private jobs. If you run a restaurant and you need help in the kitchen, sushi chef jobs are very much welcome here at Airtasker. It doesn’t even have to be a full-time gig. You can just indicate when you need your Tasker to come in. More experienced head chefs can also put up a task for sushi chef assistant jobs.

Suggested reads about Sushi Chef

What do sushi chef services include?

Sushi has become very accessible nowadays. You can get it from Japanese restaurants and food stalls in your area. Even local grocery stores have pre-packed sushi available. However, these store-bought meals may not be the same quality of sushi prepared by a highly trained professional chef. 

Hiring a sushi master or an Itamae might be worth your buck once you have tasted authentic sushi prepared based on your preferences. Here’s what you can expect when you hire a sushi chef through Airtasker:

Traditional sushi prepared in batches

The secret to delicious sushi is in the rice mixture used and paired with a variety of ingredients. Complementing choices will give a single bite so much texture, and flavour rolled into one sushi piece. Most sushi recipes use fish like tuna (maguro, shiro-maguro), mackerel (saba), yellowtail (hamachi), snapper (kurodai), and salmon (sake). These fish slices can be served raw or torched and then combined with vinegared rice and vegetables like carrots and cucumber. 

Meat slices like wagyu beef and pork liver are great options for those who like red meat more than seafood. Sushi rolls can be prepared in batches and brought to your home by a seasoned chef. This is a reliable way to get top-standard sushi without worrying about ordering Japanese takeaway every night. 

It can even be cheaper than frequenting restaurants in the long run. Just don’t forget that sushi, like any other food, is best consumed right away. Eat them up while they’re still fresh, and ask your Tasker to prepare them accordingly for storage.

Sushi party catering

Sushi is a much-loved menu offering at parties and events. The California Maki with crab sticks, cucumbers and mango slices is a regular option and is usually liked by those trying sushi for the first time. A toro roll with a fattier and rarer variety of tuna can delight those who love more traditional and straightforward recipes. 

Meanwhile, a dragon roll made with shrimp tempura, rice, and black sesame seeds is popular among the younger crowd. You can even hire a chef specialising in Japanese cuisine and request a full catering spread with DIY donburi bowl stations, freshly sliced sashimi being prepared on-site, and platters of tempura deep-fried to perfection.  

While you’re at it, make the party planning even easier by getting Taskers to organise and coordinate for you. A performer can also make the event livelier and more entertaining!

Healthier sushi substitutes

Hiring a sushi chef also allows you to enjoy this crowd-favourite dish without cheating on your diet or sacrificing taste. Plant-based sushi options use thin slices of fresh shitake mushrooms instead of fish or meat. The white sticky rice can be replaced with low-carb substitutes. 

Don’t hesitate to ask your Tasker to customise the menu based on your lifestyle or remove allergens from the ingredients list. If you’re counting calories, you can also opt not to have cream-based sauces and seasonings. This can be replaced with jalapeños, scallions, or fruits! Your Tasker may even be able to help you get sugar-free or vegan pastries for dessert.
