2018/08/18 The Art of Sushi Class

I taught The Art of Sushi class to who love real food from scratch. Fortunately I harvested all vegetables from garden this morning such as shiso, Japanese cucumber, turnips, fudansou, green onion, they are super fresh.

They are young couple and husband grew up home made healthy foods, so he knows real foods taste.

Hand wrap sushi

Especially they enjoyed fresh sashimi & Japanese cucumber which is crunchy & tasty.

He asked me “what you are eating everyday?”, then I think about what I am eating and answered “Most likely I am eating vegetables from my garden everyday, because I grew so many vegetables in my garden.”
