Asking a modern human Do you like sushi? is akin to asking, Do you like pleasure? the answer is most likely in the affirmative, although there are some who find it disgusting. If youve experimented with crafting sushi in your own kitchen, you have probably run into snarls: making the rice sticky enough, properly slicing fish for sashimi, rolling it right, and letting this much joy into your life. There are classes for folks like you! Todays sushi class enlightens you on the food preparation as well as providing some history of sushi as well as meal-related rituals and terminology. Fine-tune your skills with uramaki, hosomaki, and futomaki. Prepare an embarrassment of Japanese food with leftovers to take home. The lesson comes with a free beer or soda, and the satisfaction of adding another dimension to your cooking skills that will make you superpopular with yourself and others. And hey, do you like jazz?
