Following the tribute to Masumi Jackson the meeting activities proceeded as planned on the theme of Japanese Day. Our guest presenter was the chef Mr Sam Ito, who gave a demonstration of making Sushi.
Mr Ito explained many correct techniques including how to slice fish...
The granddaughter of one of our members was the first 'volunteer' to practise this skill.
Subsequently members made the sushi rolls, shown in the photo above, that were enjoyed for our lunch. In keeping with this theme, members made ikebana using tableware in lieu of vases, that can be seen on the following link, Ikebana for the table.
