For the love of International Sushi Day…

The recipe for a perfect day isn’t hard, it’s just an itinerary of all those seductive ‘S’ words… Sun, sea, sand, secluded desert island, sushi and maybe a bit of sake.

The beautiful Zaya Nurai Island resort is ticking all of those heart-shaped boxes for International Sushi Day, by hosting a sushi-making materclass with executive chef, Mark Abed.

It’s Dhs500 and is being hosted this Friday, June 18 between midday to 2pm at the boutique resort’s Mexican-themed restaurant, Dusk.
