- May 31 - King Library Opens at 1:00 PM
I am from the Midwest where sushi wasn't something I had heard of before I was in college. I worked at the Missouri Botanical Garden where they hosted a week-long Japanese Festival. It was there, that I first tasted sushi. And it was love at first bite!
I learned to roll my own sushi using books from the library. It isn't hard and you don't need raw fish to be a successful sushi chef. Good news in a land-locked state. One of the first rolls I made was Korean Sushi - which features grilled beef. I call it "gateway sushi" because people who think sushi is just raw fish usually really like it!
You can do it too - just check out one of these books and get rolling!
