"Amazing experience. Hardest part now is finding another excuse to do it again! Arnaud was charming, charismatic and the food was excellent to top it all off."
The only French inspired Omakase in Australia.
I strive to elaborate a unique menu for each event. A menu that will fit to your taste and most important that will surprise you and your guests. By mixing my sushi training with my experience as a French chef it results in a unique fine dining experience in your home comfort.
Only the best ingredients are used: from the premium sushi rice Koshihikari from Niigata (Japan) seasoned with a secret recipe of sushi vinegar to the highest quality of seafood from local fishermen, Tasmania, New Zealand and Japan.
About me: from France to Melbourne
I am Arnaud and I have two passions in life: the ocean and cooking.
I grew up in a small town on the coast of Normandy, where I used to spend my free time either at the sea or cooking. At 19 years old, after six months at university I realized that engineering would not be my career and so I took a life changing decision: to integrate the Paul Bocuse Institute and study Culinary Arts and Restaurant Management.
After improving my cooking techniques in a Michelin starred restaurant, I moved to Bordeaux, where I joined a traditional Omakase style sushi restaurant. I worked close to the Chef, Yugo Ishikawa from Tokyo, who taught me all about the art of sushi. A new world opened to me and even though it was a different culture and skills, I found an incredible respect for the products and traditions as in my education. I knew that I will eventually become a sushi chef.
I created Uminono to offer you a unique experience with a different sushi omakase and teach you the essential sushi skills during the Japanese cooking classes at your place in Melbourne.
