Sushi Class

MAFB Sushi Class_120424_0011

This week I had the pleasure of teaching a class at our nearby USAF base, Malmstrom.   The housing activities director, Amber Gardner arranges for fun activities all through out the month every month , she helps the families settle into the community.

There were 12  wonderful students.

They learned about four basic types of Sushi, eating etiquette and that it’s very easy to over stuff you futomaki (California Roll). They also learned that sushi rice is very sticky.

And they learned that it is art.

Mostly they learned that that it’s not as hard to do as they thought and that it was a lot of fun.

Thank you Amber for taking care of our military community, for making friends and fun out of strangers.  We appreciate all you do for our service men and woman who sacrifice for us every day.

I’ll be back next week to teach an easy Cinco de Mayo party menu (and yes Tequila will be involved).

    How fun! Haha, I remember the first time I made sushi it was a disaster, I learned pretty quick to not overstuff the rolls. Luckily I could eat the evidence.

    Yours looks great!

      I think that over stuffing the rolls is one of the very first thing everyone learns when they make them. When I taught the class, I mentioned that the ends and mess up’s all get consumed by the chef…darn the luck!

      Sushi isn’t for everyone, which is a good thing because it leave more for me 😉

    You’re torturing me! One of my biggest pregnancy cravings.

      Ugh, that’s right, you can’t indulge..yet. You’ll just have to make up for lost time later.

    Oh my gosh, Rhonda! I am so impressed! I wish I could have been a student in that class. I am a fairly new sushi eater….but I don’t think I’m ready to attempt making it! Your sushi looks beautiful! : )

    Have never made it and have never eaten it. So, what would you suggest should be our first foray into a tasting? California roll? I’m paranoid about the freshness of the raw seafood here in our land-locked state. 🙂

    Great post and what a great place to teach a class.

    Loved the class, learned so much and had fun, (my husband was impressed with my roll too)! See you at your next one 🙂

      Thanks, I’m so excited that you’ll be at the next one! It might get wild, it involves tequila 😉

    Sushi is my favorite food and it’s so healthy too. Lean protein and with all the good omega-3 fatty acids, it is one of the healthiest foods you can eat. is where I get mine and is also where I even learned how to make it at home. Sashimi is also a great option for people who want to avoid all the carbs in rice. I think it’s the perfect meal.
