I am wondering if you guys and gals could help me out. I'd like to give sushi making at home a try. In the past I've done yellowfin sashimi and seared tuna dishes as well, but I'm thinking about learning how to make sushi now.
Many times when I'm trying to learn a new dish (or method) I like to start with a decent foundation. Most times I search out a traditional method of what the dish may be...and learn from there. But with sushi I'm not sure I should learn in my usual methods. I suppose I'm a bit intimidated, never having any experience with making rolls and such. So instead of trying to get the traditional methods down, I'm wondering if simply doing an adequate job would be suffice.
What I mean by adequate doesn't necessarily mean sloppy or incompetent. Just adequate. I'd like to develop the skills to put together a decent roll and nigiri. The history and dedication it appears to take to begin to perfect sushi is something I just don't have time to pursue. But I would like to learn the basics.
