Last Saturday I was invited to a dinner party that was not only entertaining but also educational and interactive. The host taught the guests to make sushi and as he fluttered around socializing, sushi virgins created what we would later eat for dinner. Since I have made lots of sushi (and I am a doer and slight control freak) you would have thought I would have been more of a help but instead I sat on the sidelines (of the bar) and watched my new friend Adam go from timid to (Sushi) tyrant. In one hour he created our meal, developed a new skill and provided lots of entertainment.
Sushi Making in Through the Eyes of a Novice
Once the rice was down, it was as simple as adding my ingredients of choice and rolling the sushi. My favorite combination was a more standard salmon, avocado and red pepper mix, but I was introduced to a tasty avocado, apple and pear combo that was a hit with my vegetarian friends.
