I have two new videos up at icFlorida.com, produced by the pros at WFTV. One of the videos might be considered Sushi 101, a primer of sorts on how and what to order at a sushi restaurant and how to eat it. My thanks to the folks at Nagoya Sushi for their help (and for all the wonderful sushi they provided during the shoot!).
The other video is about how to use chopsticks. I’m a firm believer that some foods should be eaten with chopsticks, and I’m always a little disappointed when I visit an Asian restaurant and find Western eating utensils on the table. And even more disappointed with my dining companions who request a fork when dining with me at, say, a new Chinese or Japanese restaurant. Yes, I know that using chopsticks intimidates a lot of people, but that’s because they’re using them all wrong. In this video I’ll show you the secret to mastering their use. I promise that if you follow these instructions you’ll be able to pick up a single pea and pop it into your mouth. And you can try out your new chopsticking skills this weekend for Lunar New Year. More about that tomorrow.
