Video #0003 - The Sushi Experiment 2.0: Rolled Sushi

Well, I didn’t get any angry e-mails or death threats, so I’m assuming that you folks liked our first videocast (or were at the very least willing to tolerate it).  So we’re back with another.  In this, our second installment in the Sushi series, we’ll be talking about how to make maki sushi, or rolled sushi.  We’ll be making two of the most popular examples of this – kappa maki, or cucumber roll; and the infamous California Roll.

  • […] about Japanese food before, as have our friends over at TJX.  In fact I’ve even made a video or three on the subject. (In all fairness, the TJX crew did this as well.) But there’s something […]
