Greetings, and welcome to the third and final installment in this series of sushi making videos. It's finally time to run with the big dogs and face your fears -- raw fish. But don't worry, it's not as difficult as it sounds, and assuming you have access to a reasonably good Asian foods market (or are willing to order frozen products shipped to you in dry ice over the internet) you'll be just fine. (Look at it this way, not only do you get good quality raw fish, but also dry ice to play with. Fun!) Today we learn how to make Temaki, or hand rolls; and Nigiri, or pressed sushi. We also take a brief detour and learn the Way of the Blade -- handling sushi knives.
This is the final video in the Sushi series. Hopefully you've enjoyed it. I'll be returning to audio podcasting after this. But stay tuned until the end of the video, because I'll be talking about the future of Otaku no Podcast and these video podcasts.
Well, I didn't get any angry e-mails or death threats, so I'm assuming that you folks liked our first videocast (or were at the very least willing to tolerate it). So we're back with another. In this, our second installment in the Sushi series, we'll be talking about how to make maki sushi, or rolled sushi. We'll be making two of the most popular examples of this -- kappa maki, or cucumber roll; and the infamous California Roll.
