The Merchant's Table

ARCHIVED EVENT (2019) - Salmon, Nose to Tail with Silla Bjerrum SOLD OUT


  • We are honoured to have chef, consultant and cookbook author, Silla Bjerrum, original founder of Feng Sushi and now working in innovation in the sushi industry, at The Merchant’s Table, where she will perform a demonstration of nose to tail eating with a sustainable salmon. Silla will take a whole salmon and with great skill dissect and prepare sashimi and sushi for us.

    The sashimi and sushi will be paired with either a wine or sake.

    The focus is on the key ingredients and techniques used in Japanese cooking and de-mystifies the making of several types of sushi and sashimi.

    “I have been passionate about fish for as long as I can remember and my healthy addiction to Omega rich fish is only partially preordained by my Danish genes”.

    Salmon sourcing and working with responsible farmed salmon. Salmon usage and how to use more of the salmon part.

    Scale and fillet salmon, showing best techniques

    Silla will prepare the whole salmon from raw, demonstrating preparation, sharing skills, discussing food history, traditionand artisan attitudes to food, all this while Clement of Smashing Wines serves you his well considered wine pairing.
