2020/01/11 The Art of Sushi Class

I taught The Art of Sushi class in San Francisco. The class is a X’mas gift from customer to her friend. I harvested Turnips, Trefoil, Green onion from vegetable garden. They are very good team and work together very well. For my surprise, they liked Japanese pickled plum so much. I am so glad they liked it because it is super healthy alkaline food and keep body pH balanced. They love miso soup too which made of home made miso fermented for two years.
