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.
