On the 19th of August, a Year 9 Japanese class went to A3 to make our own sushi. We made sushi because we wanted to experience Japanese authentic culture and food. We split into groups of four, and placed our ingredients on the table which Miss Kojima prepared. We used crabsticks, cucumber and egg on the sushi rice. We rolled it all together with the seaweed on the bamboo sushi mats.
The results varied throughout the different groups, with some successful sushi, and some not so successful sushi. The most common mistake was putting too much rice on the seaweed, making it too wide to roll. However, at the end of the period we all sat down as a class and enjoyed our sushi together, despite the appearance. Over all, it was a great experience and we learnt not only about sushi but also about Japanese eating manner as a whole.
