Eating good sushi in Mumbai is still sadly a rare treat. So you can imagine our excitement last week when we dropped by Fenix at the Oberoi, Mumbai to not only indulge our cravings but also step behind the counter for a special sushi-making lesson with Chef Augusto Cabrera. Chef Augusto, on loan for just one week from Threesixty restaurant at the Oberoi, New Delhi, is a trained sushi expert who started his career in his native Philippines, before stints through the Middle East and now India. Learn how to make your very own expert sushi at home by watching our step-by-step videos. Pictures inside!
