I taught The Art of Sushi class for the customer’s boyfriend’s mom’s birthday & retirement gift. His mom is a vegan so I created special sushi menu for her. It was so windy today that we ended up losing power during cooking class! He prepared candles and flash light. So we are checking the green vegetable color with flash light when boiling. I harvested Turnips, Trefoil and green onion from garden. She wanted to learn how to make sushi roll, so lot’s of preparation for ingredients for sushi roll such as dried mushroom, carrot and trefoil. She really enjoyed making sushi roll and also roasting sesame seeds. They are fun part for today’s class. We had power back towards the end of class and they can enjoy food with the lights.

I taught The Art of Sushi class today. When I get my customer’s place, a big moving track parked in front of the building. When I called my customer, he told me “the movers are loading stuff now, so the door should be open. You can go up stairs.” I went up stairs and met his girl friend and she was moving today! This is the first class I teach on the day who is moving. This is a Xmas gift for the customer’s girl friend and she is moving today during cooking class. So this is very unique setting class, when I ask about something, ” sorry it’s already packed somewhere” But she really wanted to learn how to make sushi and she loves miso soup as well. So she was pretty excited and she really enjoyed class. She felt the difference taste for miso soup from restaurant since I use kelp & dried anchovies for soup stock and use my home made miso. I am so glad she could join my class before she moves.
