Sushi Chef Job Description

Sushi chefs are Japanese workers who prepare and serve sushi and sashimi.

Sushi chefs are employed by restaurants, grocery stores, hotels, and other types of establishments to prepare and serve sushi and sashimi.

Sushi chefs work carefully, as sushi is a delicate food that must always be served fresh.

Sushi chefs also prepare and serve other types of Japanese food, such as yakitori (Japanese-style grilled skewer), sukiyaki (a pot stew of meat and fish), and gyoza (Japanese-style dumplings).
