|04:08 pm - Sushi class (finished now, I think)|
Hoppie and I did a sushi making class in Boston this weekend at Sea To You in Brookline. We bought coupons for the class @ Groupon when they did a half off special. So instead of 60$/class, it was 30.
The class was set up this way:
The first half, he gave us general information about various techniques and ingredients.
Then he demonstrated what we'd be making. Then we made it. (More on results as appropriate)
We had a great time, but I will clearly be needing practice, particularly with the inside-out rolls.
For clarity, I'm going to combine my general notes from both classes, rather than repeat them repeatedly.
( Making steamed rice for sushiCollapse )
( Sushi vinegar - making the sushi ricerCollapse )
( Other ingredientsCollapse )
( Rolling makiCollapse )
( Hand rollsCollapse )
( Cutting, negiri, and sashimiCollapse )
And that was sushi school. We still have to go for the third class.
They haven't posted our pictures (that I've seen yet), but if i see them on facebook, I'll take them.
