Cooking with Zee Bee: How to Make Sushi at Home

This video of how to make sushi at home is the first installment of cooking with Zee Bee--my super kid chef. Even if your kids don't eat sushi they might enjoy learning to make it as it is super fun to squish the rice and roll it up. It is definitely a great activity for tweens and teens who are too old for playdough.

Making sushi at home is actually quite simple when you have an inexpensive bamboo mat and some sticky rice. My ten year old has exactly one month of cooking experience--so it is definitely do able for kids and adults. My daughter has watched them make sushi for years so she definitely knows more about it than the most but in a few weeks she has become proficient enough to teach. You can by the sushi mat on amazon or in NYC at Katagiri, a Japanese grocery store. We also purchased Kokuho sushi rice at Whole Foods. We tested the Kokuho sushi rice with an EZ Gluten Test kit and the results showed that this sushi rice is less than 5 ppm gluten.
