2017/06/24 The Art of Sushi Class

I taught The Art of Sushi Class on June 24th at their place. One of them has vegetable texture issue and had request to change menu from green vegetable with sesame to something else. I thought if he does like leafy vegetable texture I could change to Japanese pumpkin dish. So I substitute Japanese Pumpkin dish and he liked it! It was challenge for me, but I am glad it worked out well. I brought Japanese cucumber & Turnip & Green Onion from my garden. I just picked, they are super fresh.

2017/03/04 The Art of Sushi Class

I taught The Art of Sushi Class at student’s house. They are pretty healthy diet conscious and very knowledgeable for healthy eating. So I shared my healthy diet concept and vegetable garden pictures.

I am so glad that they understood Japanese healthy cooking concept, and Japanese home style cooking is pretty simple and easy too.

I also shared my experience when I traveled to Germany since his mom is a German. It was very fun class and I really enjoyed teaching them healthy diet and healthy life style.
