Members of SUNY Corning Community College’s Japanese Club hosted a make-your-own sushi rolling event, open to members of the campus community.
It was described by Eriko Heise, the club’s co-advisor, as a “..an interactive way to learn about and enjoy Japanese culture,”
To create their rolls, students chose from cucumbers, carrots, avocados, corn, pickled daikon radish, shiso (Japanese basil), shiitake mushroom, tuna, and imitation crab meat. To begin, students placed a bit of sweetened vinegared rice on “nori” (dried seaweed), then put their choice of ingredients on the rice, and rolled. Iced green tea and barley tea, Japanese summer time favorites, completed the menu.
