Do sushi and sashimi make you salivate? If so, pop down to The Sheraton, which is offering a weekly dining experience dedicated to all things Japanese. Taste of Japan offers the opportunity to try an array of Asian delicacies and watch sushi-making demos while learning all about the country's culinary etiquette – for example, slurping your soup is apparently quite acceptable as it signifies a good appetite. And while you may be familiar with the toast kampai ('cheers'), did you know you mustn't raise your glass before the host does?
