Sushi Demo {provided by Ichiban}


What do you serve when you want students to learn about fish, high in protein, low in calories? I wanted to expose them to sushi. So, Mrs. Brown took a field trip to Ichiban in Asheville and met the owner Richard. He and his staff were incredibly nice and welcomed me to learn this art.

And now I am ready to teach my class.

Darrion likes it his first time ever.

IMG_0133He claims it tastes just as good!

IMG_0136Eli, on the other hand, is quite the expert. In fact, we borrowed his personal mat.

IMG_0137Now you see why.

IMG_0138Yarah did a great job on her first try.

IMG_0139She eats sushi regularly and knows what it should look like.

IMG_0120I was impressed that nearly 100% of the kiddos tried it.

IMG_0119We had fresh ginger and sriracha and wasabi sauce, sweet rice, nori, chopsticks and the works.

IMG_0135No matter what the sushi looked like, the kids had a great experience learning and remembering that fish is high in protein and low in calories, don’t you think?


Sushi, it’s what’s for snack, in foods lab.
