About SCI


Are you looking for a good Sushi School?

Would you like to receive the highest quality of sushi making education? Would you like to be a master in Japanese
cooking? We are sure to meet your expectations. Sushi Chef Institute is a Sushi School for anyone who wants to
learn Sushi making and traditional Japanese cooking.

The instructor, Chef Andy Matsuda, was the first person authorized to serve as a sushi instructor
in California’s Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education Institution. He has been publicized
in People Magazine, New York Food Magazine, and US newspapers and appeared on local Fox 11 TV. In
addition to teaching students at SCI, he has taught instructors at Le Cordon Bleu (French culinary
school). Chef Andy Matsuda was also chosen as one of the “100 Japanese world respected people” in
the Newsweek Japanese Edition Pop Up (Issue Oct. 17, 07).

On June 6th 2008, SCI became the only sushi school in the U.S. to offer I-20 (for M VISA) to international students.
