  • Hi mate, how are you doing?

  • I'm doing alright. How about you?

  • It could be worse. Yourself?

  • I've been trying to up my Sushi game recently

  • but I keep failing when I make stuff

  • I can do better

  • You need both, mate

  • You wouldn't happen to anyone or anywhere

  • who could bring our Sushi coronary effort to the next level, would you?

  • I know just the place, actually

  • You for a little train journey?

  • That I am

  • Done, let's go

  • Are you cool if we go tomorrow? -Why not?

  • Alright, let's go

  • The place we had in mind?

  • None other than Umemori-san's Sushi cooking school in Nara

  • We managed to get an invite on their way to make a special kind of Sushi

  • They have the Ume. How nice

  • Sushi school welcome out here today

  • Konnichiwa!

  • Welcome

  • nice to meet you

  • I'm the Sushi master Yasu

  • Okami Setsuko

  • Let's do it

  • We are famous for making Temari-Sushi

  • Temari are wrapped in Wasabi leaves

  • As Temari are quite unique, once you open it, people are surprised

  • temari sushi are really cute and the girls love it

  • After that lovely greeting, we would put on some clothes suitable to making sushi

  • It's got a summer feeling. It's like Yukata or Jimbei

  • Ok very nice

  • Oh enjoying the wear

  • So handsome looking

  • Hair sticking out

  • So cool looking

  • So this is a Happi, you see them worn during festivals

  • wearing over normal clothes

  • Today we're wearing one for Sushi because they look cool

  • That is the character for Matsuri

  • or the "festival" on the back

  • So the idea is to have fun while making sushi, like in a festival

  • Before we make the sushi, let's mix rice and vineger

  • The rice we use today is called Ashimai, which we use at our school

  • The top notch rice in Japan

  • This is quite a rare type of rice

  • People here often eat "Koshihikari", but this one is the original

  • The amount is low, but it's a really high class rice fitted for Sushi

  • I am left handed

  • Hard to mix Sushi

  • There we go

  • So Dave had all the fun so I'm going to do it

  • Something is quite not right

  • The angle is wrong

  • The master is showing

  • Try again

  • The rice is too wet now

  • Now it's getting better

  • We've done our preparation now

  • The ingredients, mainly the rice is very very simple

  • It's vinegar, salt and sugar

  • I'm going to give a test now how the flavor is like

  • This is from preparation

  • Be careful you don't throw it in

  • Next step, with our Gas Sun

  • you know it's powerful

  • Okami-san will lead us to the various steps to making this type of Sushi

  • measuring out the grammage for example

  • You don't want too much, you don't want too little. You want that goldilocks zone

  • Just right

  • Then wrapping the Sushi and

  • twisting it in a particular way

  • which gives it that signature circular shape

  • So this is called Kinome

  • also known as "Sansho"

  • We're going to give it a slap, which will give it the flavor

  • Already a flavor to it. It's really good

  • We're arranging the Sushi now on the plate,

  • It's interesting to know the artistic details

  • We have the gold flake

  • also symmetry

  • As you place each item on the plate,

  • You want everything to align

  • Have that symmetry as you would have a piece of art

  • Now I'm going to challenge myself to their signature dish

  • which is the flower arrangement sushi, which is really hard to do

  • And I'm not really good at it so let's see how it turns out

  • no pressure

  • There we go

  • Looking good

  • Where do I lay it at the end?

  • Anywhere is ok

  • Finally, open up the petals without destroying it

  • Excellent. Well made

  • I've surprised myself

  • So that's what the professional's look like

  • wonderful

  • So it begins

  • You should know, what we're using is a little unorthodox,

  • and that's on purpose

  • It's to have fun

  • Because making Sushi is fun

  • There is a lot of traditional stuff,

  • enjoy that, and educate yourself on it,

  • but whatever it gets you involved and have intrest in this work of art,

  • is allowed

  • So enjoy yourself when doing it

  • Sea urchin

  • Japanese pepper

  • Cream cheese

  • Tomato in many colors

  • And what is this? -Mozarella cheese

  • Mozarella and...salmon roe

  • And?

  • Bacon!

  • We added a bit of salt and pepper on this bacon

  • And jamon serrano

  • And sliced cucumber

  • For this, we cut it in a unique way

  • It's long

  • And this is....spare rib

  • Finally, steak

  • It's actually flavored in steak sauce

  • And?

  • Olive oil

  • Onion chip

  • mustard

  • You can use this in parties as well

  • Bacon, first level. Level 1

  • Tomato

  • It may not be traditional, but I think it 's going to be delicious

  • Finally after our hard work, we got to sit down and enjoy that delicious Sushi

  • Who am I kidding? It wasn't hard work at all

  • It was so fun learning how to do it

  • with great hosts

  • And to top it all off, Umemori-san was willing to answer a few questions we have for him

  • Big final thanks to Umemori-san

  • and their whole staff for the wonderful experience
