Dreams of Sushi (Class only)
September 17 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm PDT$45
Break out the chopsticks and roll out the sushi! In our Hipcooks Dreams of Sushi Class, you’ll learn to make sushi rice, how to prepare fish, and all the tricks to make gorgeous sushi rolls.
Sushi Class Kit
Our Ingredients Kit makes it easy — just about everything you need for class arrives in a lovingly packed box.
The purchase price includes the kit, shipping costs, and the cost of the class. (If you cannot attend the live class, we’ll send you a recording to watch at your convenience.)
Ingredients you’ll need for Sushi Class
We’re listing ingredients to make enough sushi for 4 people, but feel free to adjust the amounts as necessary. Also, there are optional ingredients for you to pick and choose from: source the ingredients that you like, and leave out the rest! The fun thing about creating sushi rolls is that you can make it according to your own tastes.
2 cups Japanese Sushi rice
1 package Japanese nori sheets (these are the sheets of seaweed used to wrap the sushi)
seasoned rice vinegar
wasabi paste or wasabi powder
togarashi (Japanese chili flakes or you can use Sriracha, chili oil, or other spices)
mayonnaise (or you can use cream cheese instead, or omit entirely)
1 Japanese cucumber (you can also use a Persian or English cucumber)
1 bunch of scallions
1 ripe avocado
(if you have another veggie you’d love to include, feel free to do so.)
Fish of your choice:
It is important that you chose sushi-grade (or sashimi-grade) fish since it will be consumed raw. When in question, please ask the Fishmonger for guidance. Most stores will have either fresh or frozen sushi-grade tuna or salmon. Go for about a quarter pound of fish per person — mix and match! Other fish you can consider is sushi-grade yellowtail, halibut, or scallops.
Veggie rolls are, of course, delicious! But if you’d like a more substantial filling we would suggest thinly sliced shitake mushrooms. You can sautee them in some neutral oil with a little soy sauce at the top of the class, and you can use them instead of fish.
1 sushi rolling mat
a rice cooker or a good-quality pot with a tight-fitting lid
a Y-shaped veggie peeler
assorted small bowls (for ingredients, soy sauce, etc.)
