The Art of Sushi
Come explore the world of sushi as you create this Japanese delicacy yourself. We'll begin by preparing the coveted sushi rice then you'll learn the art of "nigiri-sushi"(hand molded rice) topped with shrimp, unagi, and ahi tuna. You'll then learn how to prepare "maki-sushi" using a bamboo mat to roll rice with various fillings in and around Nori (seaweed sheets). Options and accompaniments will include surimi, cucumber, avocado, cream cheese, teriyaki chicken, tempura onions, spicy mayo, eel sauce, wasabi, pickled ginger and soy sauce. This class is mostly demonstration.
