As the “last leg” in her birthday tour, I surprised her with a sushi preparation class at the KC Culinary Center. The class was well-taught and we both had lots of fun. Sushi is one of those foods which require far more preparation ahead of time than in making the actual food. We got to do just the fun stuff, which included rolling and eating. A lot.
When I eat things like sushi, I always reflect back to my extreme pickiness as a child. How did I come this far? Did my palate actually evolve, did I simply start giving “strange” foods a fair shake, or is it something else?
After so many hot dogs and grilled cheese sandwiches as a kid, I’m sure my mom just shakes her head when she hears me say I ate eel.
