Today is my 4th Sushi lesson in Jul. The participants came from UK and Australia. The lady from UK is an enthusiast for learning maki-zushi, and she brought newly met her friend to the class. Both ladies are lovely and I had great time with them.
Rolling sushi seems difficult that students in my class say before practice. However, everyone makes beautiful rolls once they get some tips.
People often asks me if sushi roll is made for daily family meal? It is depend on the each family but I answer sushi roll is mainly made for occasional meal, such as celebrating birthday, festivals and ceremonies. Also sushi is convenient for outside meal since you can eat with fingers, without chopsticks. Making Maki-zushi is not a daily meal, too much tasks.
Embarrassingly, I haven’t made sushi roll before I began to teach Japanese cooking for tourists since my culinary background is French cooking….poor excuse! However, once I get to make rolls it is easier than I expected. I failed time to time then I got how to make visually nice rolls. I did same experience with the students in my class, so I understand what is difficult points for the first tries.
I’ m always happy to see the students made great rolls!
