I'm a japanese food fiend. People that know me can attest to this. So do many of the pictures on this site. After going out enough times to eat a certain kind of food, you start to get the inclination to want to make it at home. Because it looks really easy to make. And feeding (haha) that kind of habit can start to get expensive.
In the past I've constructed Miso Soup, though there is no adventure for that, being that it involves 2 steps, heating broth, and stirring in Miso paste.
Now, I've branched out into another cool japanese food item, Sushi! In particular, Kappa Maki (cucumber rolls) and California Rolls. These are the two kinds of sushi that I eat most often. And so, I gathered together a crack team of 1 person who'd done the job before, a plethora of ingredients, and set out to construct sushi.
