Sushi preparation?.. you may be asking yourself.. (or not, but whatever this is my story!) But you just got this bad ass molecular gastronomy kit last week. Are you bored with that already?!@
The answer, of course, is no. I have plenty left to experiement with. This coming weekend will henseforth known as Spherification Saturday and Reverse Spherification Sunday. Excited. *prance prance prance*
However, that leaves 5 perfectly good week days.. two of which have been wasted already due to my lazy bastardness. No more time wasted though, because I’ve decided that I am going to learn to how to prepare sushi.
Over the weekend, my boyfriend and I were having lunch (omg SUSHI!) and I said, you know.. I bet I could make this.. and then he gave me this look like, ‘Ehhhhhhhhh. I dunno’.. and then proceeded to tell me people less culinarily talented than I have failed at homemade sushi and that he doesn’t think it will go well.
Of course, him lumping me in with his friends previous sushi-related failures only made me give him the stink eye. .. and then it made me go buy a kit with instruction booklet, cute dishes, and instructional DVD.
First stop, Philadelphia Rolls! (none of that pansy ass nigiri for me.)
Even in the face of utter skepticism from my boyfriend (who doubts my abilities even after I have lavished him lovingly with more Nanette Sauce than is healthy for one human being)… I will be kicking sushi-ASS tonight.
Pictures to come! (unless he’s right and it looks totally jenky.. then just forget I posted this)
