Parent-Child Sushi Bento Class

One fine Saturday morning, Evan & I found ourselves at The Cooking House.... again for yet another round of parent-child class. It's the school break and it's the Agong's birthday too - hooray for holidays!

All the ingredients were already prepared - including the sushi rice.  We watched a demo on how to roll makis and how to pack a simple bento lunchbox.

We used lots of bento tools e.g. cutters and moulds to decorate the bento. Evan had fun decorating the lunchbox while eating some leftover seaweed.

Ta-daaaa! Our completed bento boxes filled with cucumbers, carrots, tomatoes, sushi rolls (maki), hard-boiled eggs, cheese, pasta salad and potato salad.

The instructor should have shown us how to make sushi rice and the salads. Anyway, it was a simple but fun class to attend.

Sushi rice is not hard. You just need some glutinous rice for sushi and some japanese sushi vinegar (Can get them at supermarket i think).

The simplest way ist just to cook the rice normally (maybe a little bit more water) and when it is done add some vinegar, salt and sugar =)

well of course there are different kinds of preparing methods. Mine is the laziest and the fastest way. hahaha!!
