My cousin Ramona, introduced me to the wonders of sushi making, and as a California native she makes the most lovely vegetarian [2] rolls! This past Friday we spent the night, rolling sushi and drinking sake, it was so fun and my friend Mike said it was the best Sushi he has had ever, and he has been to Japan!
