The Frustrating Search for A Mentor+ Fun With Salmon

Week two and three have gone bye already! What! These last couple weeks have been very hectic for me. I had many extracurricular and social events, but I managed to ask many times for potential mentors. So far none have succeeded. I have asked from experienced kitchen chefs to professionals with their own restaurants, but all have had things that conflicted with helping me. One is renovating his restaurant; others are too busy with the rest of their lives. And still there are others, who don’t trust their knowledge but know many people. I have employed said people as agents, keeping their ears to the ground and telling me if they know of anyone who can help. In the meantime, bored of waiting and anxious to start, I got out a book from my local library, bought some ingredients, and cooked a Japanese meal with my mom. She made all the side dishes and such and I made the main course: salmon “hat” style sushi. The result was a surprising success, for a first time. The rice and sashimi were half decent, and the thing was not overpowered by vinegar. I was very proud of the result, considering I had no formal experience and limited knowledge. Pictures will follow, as soon as I upload them. Keep in mind; I made what is essentially the easiest sushi there is to make. The skill and difficulty will increase, I promise you. That’s all for now, I’m sorry this was late; I will make it up in the future. If you have any questions or comments, please leave them in the comments section, along with any suggestions for what I should try to make next. See you next time,
Christopher Adams
