Thursday afternoon’s activity was the delicious art of sushi making!
We got to work preparing the vegetables and avocado.
Nanaka and Ai helped lead the way with the most important job.. The rice!
We had special short grain sushi rice but the rice cookers were proving to be slightly difficult and stopped working half way through. As a group we decided to finish cooking the rice on the stove.
In the mean time, Mano decided to taste test the wasabi.. he managed to convince Nami and Ai to do the same.. as you can imagine, it wasn’t pleasant.
Then the taste testing then moved on to a sweeter flavor; carrots and nutella chocolate spread… hmm.. Strange combination, but surprisingly, it was quite yummy.
Happy faces all round as the rice is finally cooked to Hongki’s high standards!
Ai and Nanaka helped cool the rice and added the vinegar and sugar to flavor.
Then it was time to roll!
Ai showed us how to make onigiri and the rest of us used the sushi mats to make hand rolls.
Now for the best part.. eating! They looked and tasted amazing! Well done everyone 🙂
