Sushi Class

Friday night, Chip and I went to a sushi class led by the talented Marisa Baggett. Because really- if you want to know how to make sushi, you've got to ask an African-American woman from Mississippi.

Marisa is enthusiastic, funny, and knowledgable, and she didn't make fun of any of my ugly rolls. Plus she's adorable. And that's really all you can ask for in a teacher!

For $40 a person, we were provided a couple of fabulous appetizers while she got us ready, and then we were taught to make four different types of sushi rolls. She came with all the food already prepped and all the materials we would need- including sharp knives and an industrial-sized blow torch.

It was a fun night that got me over the hump on making sushi at home- I can't wait to start doing it on a regular basis! A big thank you to Aimee Lewis for hosting us, and to Marisa for being so awesome. I strongly encourage you to contact Marisa about hosting your own sushi night. You won't be disappointed.

how fun! But I'd need her to come to my house with everything prepped every time I want to make it.
