Briarpatch Co-op Cooking Classes: HOW WE ROLL: VEGAN SHUSHI FUSION FUN




With John of Heartical Foods

Ever wonder what makes a Nori roll become Sushi?  Let’s push the boundaries! …But also let us build bridges to time honored flavor combinations and ancient traditions.  In this class, we will tenderly fan our sushi rice after it has begun to cool as we sprinkle it in savory rice vinegar.  We will carefully rinse our sharp knife in between all our slices.  But we will also add any interesting ingredient we can imagine, so long as the combination is tasty!  Why be limited?  We can assemble a huge platter of diverse ingredients carefully grated, chopped, or fried to crispy perfection, all ready to be rolled up in the combination of your choice.  Mushrooms, seaweed, hemp and sesame seeds, caramelized onions, roasted garlic, sweet potato fries, heart of palm, sweet and sour tempeh…   Savory, salty, sweet, bitter, crunchy, chewy, the possibilities are endless.  We will even make a special desert roll using Thai Sticky Rice, Coconut Sugar and your choice of shredded coconut, plump soaked raisins, mango slices, dates, etc.  These Sushi Rolls can be prepared in advance or assembled all together to each person’s unique specifications. Perfect for parties!  It’s just how we roll…
