“Rollin with your homies takes on a totally new meaning with the help of Taichi Kitamura, executive chef at one of our favorite Seattle sushi destinations, Sushi Kappo Tamura. Taichi walks us through the steps of making three different types of maki: futomaki, uramaki, and hosomaki. All of them are easy and fun to make, with endless opportunities for creativity, and theyll wow your raw-fish-loving friends any day of the week.
One of the best things about sushi-making is that once youve mastered the technique, you can use as many new flavor combinations as you can dream up for your homemade sushi. An Americanized sushi-house favorite like spicy tuna? Sure! A Northwest-inspired salmon-and-kale roll? Sounds delightful and daring! The freshest, most local piece of fish youve ever bought and some crunchy cucumber? Go for it. Your new best friend Taichi is serving up the inside scoop on how to roll your own creations, so take advantage, and dont be afraid to get creative when it comes to rolling on your own.”
