VCS alumna Oona Tempest was featured last week on Mashable, in a short video in which she talks about her career as a sushi chef here in Manhattan at Sushi by Bae in the Jue Lan Club (49 W. 20th St.), right around the corner from the VCS Department. Among the topics covered are some of her experiences while she was learning to create sushi, the rarity of female chefs in the industry and the frustrating reasons women have traditionally been excluded, and the practice of making omakase-style sushi, in which the chef determines the selection of nigiri that will be served to the customer. You can watch the video here.
