Last weekend my Austrian friends Michael and Anja asked me to teach them how to make sushi. They especially love Maki sushi and really wanted to know how to make it.

I always remember my first job in a hotel was working in cold kitchen for a buffet restaurant and we always had to make lots of different kinds of sushi. There are lots of people in Taiwan who absolutely love Japanese food and especially sushi. We’ve been influenced by Japanese culture and fashion in many different ways and Taiwan was under Japanese rule for fifty years, so sushi is not that unfamiliar a dish for all Taiwanese people.

Michael and Anja learnt to make sushi for the very first time and and I’m so proud of their sushi. It is a wonderful experience for me to practice teaching cooking. We went to our local Chinese supermarket together where I showed them what ingredients are necessary then we went to their home where we made the sushi.

So, here are the photos we took on the day and I hope you enjoy them.
