How to become a Sushi Chef?

Japanese Chef Miya learned the art of making sushi over 30 years ago in Japan, therefore he can teach you the art of making the best sushi and the key to success:

"The challenge is not to fill the stomach, but rather to appeal to the eye and then to the palate with the taste sensation of sushi. The successful sushi chef wants to please his customer physically, mentally and psychologically."
