So last night I took a super fun Sushi making class with my friend Jennie from work! The Francis Tuttle Vo-Tech offers the best classes at such a reasonable rate, you should check them out! Our instructor was born and lived most of her life in Japan so while she taught us to make sushi she also explained about Japanese customs, special Asian ingredients that she uses and where to find them!!
There were about 10 people in our class which was a good number…..except I will tell you that when it came time to make our own rolls some people got all “grabby” for the “best” stuff. A few people could of had a lesson on sharing!
Here is Jennie & I…….I met Jennie when I first started working at Paradigm, she is a closer at works at the north office!
Look!!! Can you believe it? I did it all by myself! I will tell you that this takes A TON of prep work, no joke! I think if I did make this at home for Matt & I it would take me uh…..hours!
Here I am rolling my sushi in bamboo just like a pro! She also taught us about the different types of fillers they use in Japan so we filled ours with egg, mushrooms, pickled ginger…….
I swear, I made those all by myself! I was very impressed! I have this saved in my fridge for lunch today! A tip she gave us is to “nuke” the rolls in the microwave for just a few seconds to let the rice get softer again!
And here is my California roll, it was alot harder to make with just rice on the outside, no seaweed to hold everything into place! And I even added some Masago! It was so good!
Over all we had a great time at the class and I highly recommend it!!!
