Sean Evans Learns How to Make Sushi | Sean in the Wild

  • Published on Oct 10, 2017
  • Culinary neophyte Sean Evans has learned how to scramble an egg and sear a steak, but now he's up against his toughest challenge yet. Does he have what it takes to make it as a sushi chef? In the hopes of learning this highly skilled trade, Sean enrolls at the Sushi Chef Institute-an intensive, two-month course led by chef Andy Matsuda. From scaling a fish to molding nigiri, Sean learns the sushi-making basics from a real master. Will Sean make the grade or flunk his midterm? Find out on an all new episode of Sean in the Wild.

    I know there are hours cut down to minutes but every time i see vids like this (not FWF or Sean in general) i wonder if the pros ever feel like they are getting mocked by the comments the people make.

    Seeeaaan you should have taken off that watch, im a little concerned that the chef here said nothing of this. When handling raw and easily spoiling produce take off EVERYTHING from close proximity of the food product.

    Sean, this would be much better if you showed respect and deference to the chef and the food, When you put your mind to it, you can be really good, and when you are good and attentive, you can be more entertaining and more communicative.
