Temari sushi are colorful, bite-sized sushi balls that offer a unique twist on the traditional sushi experience. Learn how to make these spherical sensations at a cooking class in Asakusa, a historic neighborhood in Tokyo! The word ‘temari’ can be broken down into two parts–hand (te) and ball (mari). Temari were traditional Japanese children's toys dating back to the 7th century, typically crafted by wrapping scraps of fabric around wads of wadded silk or rice straw. What’s this got to do with your cooking class? Well, temari sushi–the star of today’s menu–was named as such because it adopts the same spherical shape of these playful handballs. Unleash your creativity and let the temari sushi-making experience begin. Your expert instructors will guide you through forming the perfect sushi rice balls and delicately arranging the toppings. Balls at the ready, you’ll move on to miso soup–a famed Japanese superfood ingredient. Once you’ve completed the temari sushi and miso soup-making experience, sit back and enjoy your handmade meal. These colorful, ball-shaped morsels feature perfectly seasoned sushi rice topped with fresh fish, succulent seafood, vibrant vegetables, and delicate garnishes. Each bite offers a harmonious explosion of flavors that dance on your palate.
