Norimaki 101

Mr. Nioka is great. He has featured in previous posts as "the man with the knife" in The Night of the Tuna and as Yuko's fishing and deep-frying instructor in Aji (鰺). He is a sushi chef by day, but to me he is first and foremost my right-honourable mah jong instructor. Sometimes he comes over to our house to teach Yuko some of the secrets of his trade.

Grace and I have not signed up for cooking class, though, so while mom learns how to make professional quality seaweed rolls in the kitchen, Grace reads in the living room . . . and I play with blocks.
