Whenever there’s a celebratory meal around here, my first choice is always sushi. I could eat it until I pop!
So I was thrilled to spend this morning in a Sushi Workshop, where I learned how to make it myself.
Cooking wise I’m no gourmet, and we eat out a lot. (Just wanted to make sure your expectations of my cuisine were nice and low.) Also, seems like every time the chef pointed out how NOT to do something, I heard my name.
There were about ten people in the class. We each had individual workstations around a huge kitchen island.
Here’s my station before we got started:
Hand-Pressed Sushi with Shrimp, Smoked Salmon, Tuna and Eel (Nigiri Sushi)
Inside-Out California Rolls (Uramaki Sushi)
Spicy Tuna Rolls and Cucumber Rolls (Hosomaki)
Hand Roll (Temaki)
Here’s my sushi:
It may not be the best looking sushi – but it was DELICIOUS! This class didn’t have grades, but I’m giving myself an A+!
