Today, I am working on recipe printouts for the Teddy bento class I am having on August 4th with guests from France.
The teddies are made of inarizushi. Inarizushi, or "o-inari-san" if you want to call it with a bit more of endearment, is a type of sushi we make at home from time to time. So this is the homey version of sushi unlike nigirizushi, a small rice ball topped with sashimi. One of my British friend once asked me how many times a week I cook nigirizushi and I can't forget the shocking look on her face when I said "Never !". Nigiri is basically something we eat out or take out and we barely cook it at home, well, at least I don't.
Other versions of homey sushi are makizushi (rolled sushi), chirashizushi (scattered sushi) and temakizushi. Temaki is a DIY sushi so to speak. Nori sheets, rice and toppings are served separately and you make your own sushi as you eat. This is so much fun and I can't wait to teach temaki in my class. Your kids will love this.
These homey sushi will soon be our regular menu ! Please wait for further updates !!
