Vegetarian Sushi--Roll Your Own

Aside from its pleasing balance of flavors, textures and fresh ingredients, good sushi impresses us as a marvel of construction and presentation. Here's your opportunity to learn to make it at home. With Mamie's guidance, you will make inside-out rolls, Inari-zushi and hand rolls using fresh vegetables and other authentic Japanese ingredients such as gourd (Japanese dried winter melon), shiso leaf, pickled plums, and dried shiitake mushrooms. As a special bonus, Mamie will divulge her knowledge of the private language or code sushi restaurant chefs and wait staff share to communicate and calculate the price of your meal. (Vegan; some sake and optional organic eggs will be used.)
