Making sushi at home
Ms. Kuniko Kikuchi, a food advisor of healthy food featuring ingredients such as soybeans, will show you how to cook sushi. She has a rich experience abroad and a good command of English. (In case she is not available, one of her students will instruct you.)
You will make three kinds of sushi, Maki sushi (roll sushi), Gunkan-maki (a small clump of sushi rice wrapped with a strip of nori and topped with soft ingredients), and nigiri sushi (a clump of sushi rice topped with a slice of raw fish). You can make them easily by using special utensils. You will be surprised to see good shapes of sushi you made. After making sushi and arranging them on the plates beautifully, it’s time for a sushi party!
