So, the other day I experienced a 'Game Changer'. I learned how to make my own sushi. HUGE NEWS.
|Can you believe it? This was made with my own two hands...YUM|
Over the last year I have developed quite an appetite for sushi. Now this isn't to say I didn't loveee sushi before (because I did) but it's sort of turned in to a full blown addiction. Like-need-it-three-times-a-week-at-least- kind of thing. And I know for a fact I am not alone in this. Actually, I would say that most of my friends also suffer from said addiction.
My friend Stephanie found about about these little cooking/ drinking classes they have at the LCBO and immediately signed us up. It was such a fun experience and I would really recommend it to anyone and EVERYONE. We learned how to make sushi from the sushi master himself (chef David Chung of Akasaka), we sampled a variety of booze, and we laughed a ton. Really a win-win-win.

|Almost everything we needed to prepare our sushi|
|First things first: Grilled Spicy Salmon Hand Roll. So amazing and the seaweed had such a nice crunch to it!|
|The Sake, White Wine and Sparkling Wine we sampled throughout the class. We also got to taste some lovely Japanese beer. My one complaint: the portion sizes should have been bigger...|
|Miss Stephanie with her completed sushi!|
|Look how beautiful the California roll is! If I do say so myself...|
|Smoked Salmon and Avocado Hand roll... I love me the Hand Rolls|
