Simon Feil is a chef/educator living in NYC and the creator of Sushi By Simon, an events company specializing in private sushi lessons. A chef by osmosis his entire life, his sushi skills began to blossom while he was studying in London in 1999. He taught his first class while working at Columbia University and the overwhelming response convinced him to bring the experience to a wider audience. Since then, he has taught groups of 2-200 all over the tri-state area and has been a recurring guest on Martha Stewart Living Radio. His other food work includes a humane meat co-op, which was featured in the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal and performances in a biblio-food educational program. In his other life, Simon is also an actor and has hosted events for Guinness, Hasbro and Suntory, as well as the 2005 Hormel "National Chili Cook-Off" with Shane Cash of Shellys NY and Ceci Carmichael, host of "Good `Food Fast"
Kara became an instructor with Sushi by Simon in 2009. She brings to our team a strong background in teaching, years of cooking experience, and first-hand knowledge of Japan and Japanese cuisine. For seven years, while living in Kyoto, Kara practiced the art of Japanese cooking. She learned recipes, techniques and secrets from some of the best cooks she could find--the women in her neighborhood. When not at sushi events, Kara spends her time making hand-pinched, Japanese-inspired pottery. Here at Sushi by Simon we are fortunate to offer Kara's sushiware! You can also find more of her collection at karanote.com.
