Great news: Master sushi chef Oz has come to Arenal. In the U.S., Oz was a sushi chef to the stars, summoned to movie sets and private galas to prepare his unique specialties for Hollywood’s elite. His career has included five-star restaurants in Japan, Paris, Luxembourg, Barcelona and now Costa Rica, where he plans to settle permanently in the Arenal area.
Oz says the necessary ingredients for sushi are available locally; anything more than three days old should never be used for sushi, which is why he will offer it Thursday to Saturday only, at Mavericks restaurant.
The chef says he loves teaching the art of sushi making to people so they can enjoy creating sushi in their own kitchens. His classes consist of two sessions of four hours each, and participants may invite a guest to help eat the sushi made during class. For more information, contact Oz at 2694-4670.
English-speaking Alcoholics Anonymous meetings are starting in Nuevo Arenal, Mondays at 7 p.m. at the little yellow church (annex building) at the intersection of the Guatuso and lake roads.
