Sushi for Kids

No cooking camp would be complete without a sushi lesson, right? I asked the talented and generous Marissa Baggett if she'd come to the school and do a demo. She happily agreed and even suggested we use vegetables from the school's garden. (Warren and I supplemented with a few things from our Whitton Farms CSA.)

Warren and I both went to watch and help out. It was so awesome to see the kids SO interested in what Marissa had to say. They were really excited about making sushi. Throughout the demo there were lots of questions, hands in the air, and clapping!

No one was more excited than Satchel.

When it was the kids' turn to make their own sushi, I was really impressed with how well they did. Even more impressive was watching them eat what they made!

Miss Emma supplemented the meal with some edamame and leftover fruit salad. Marissa brought green tea mochi ice cream for dessert--one of our favorites--but a new flavor/texture for many. It was great to see them discovering new things.
