You might never take up cross fit, or zumba, or have that pottery class like the one in Ghost, but you've gotta try a sushi making class - and bring wine and friends.
I don't eat fish or avocado, and had no reason other than a friend's Groupon voucher to be at Dave's home in Edenvale where we got
to work in a cosy lapa, so relief set in when I spotted the smoked chicken and variety of other ingredients.
We made maki and clumsy California rolls, attempted a salmon negiri with swigs of rosé in between and a bit of competition for best presentation. While some friends showed their Martha Stewart side, I showed my mayo-loving side.
With patience and not taking it too seriously, rolling and shaping the sushi is therapeutic and worth making a habit of. Dave and his family host dessert sushi courses too so I'll be back for a sugar rush.
You get to eat what you make and finish your wine while being tempted into buying a sushi making pack for home - I caved in for R100 including the rice but still wonder who's going to cook that tricky stuff.
At R240 a class, round up some friends, whether they like sushi or not, and try something different.
