On Friday, I went to the Hilton in Sandton for “sushi school”. Now I’m not a huge fan of sushi but the whole experience was such fun, and I ate and enjoyed everything I made. I think that after this class, I’ve actually become a sushi convert! It’s fresh, light and refreshing.
There were about 10 of us in total. Myself and hubby and a group of 8 other older ladies. They were so hilarious and we had tons of laughs (mostly at my bad attempts at making sushi)
|Our kit- rice, water, avo, cucumber and a really sharp knife!|
|My weapon of choice|
Our teacher, Sharon
So, before I get into the details of the class, I should make it clear that I am not the best cook. I try, and I do enjoy cooking and baking but my precision and attention to detail are lacking. My hubby, on the other hand, is a whizz in the kitchen. He’s also really neat and precise so obviously his sushi would come out better than mine! The other ladies in the class, and the waiter and waitress were killing themselves laughing at my attempts.
I loved that we had 2 waiters with us all the time so anytime you needed a drink, or anything really, they were able to assist us right away.
We started off cutting cucumber into tiny strips, ready for maki rolls.
|Yes, THAT’s how fast she was cutting|
|Completed california roll|
|I’ve graduated from sushi school!
