sushi mania

i never told you about the sushi making class i took in april!

this was, of course, before samantha jones in the "sex and the city" movie made sushi truly, erm, edible.

the class was so much fun! not only did we learn from true sushi chefs, but we also got an etiquette lesson ("never place your chopsticks up and down in a bowl of rice -- it's a symbol of death," among others).

and the best part was that we got to eat our creations.

this was made by one of the chefs right before our eyes from fresh bamboo growing outside the restaurant. none of that fake grass stuff here!
