Sushi Night in 3 Steps

Not a trained sushi chef? Not a problem. A superb sushi night, complete with Japanese dining essentials and delightful ambiance, is easier to create than you think!

STEP 1: SET THE TABLE. Setting the scene for a fabulous sushi experience is often a matter of personal taste: for example, do you prefer ceramic sushi sets or traditional wood sushi trays? Go for your favorite, and be sure to have the following essentials on hand: sushi plates, rice bowls, dipping dishes, chopsticks and chopstick rests. Plus, prepare to serve some delicious sake in classic ceramic sake cups.

STEP 2: GET THE FOOD. Sushi-making must-haves include sushi rice (cooked according to the package directions), nori (dry roasted seaweed) and a sushi rolling mat. After the rice is cooked, spread it evenly across the "rough side" of the nori, which you'll position on top of the mat (a layer of plastic wrap between the nori and mat reduces mess). At the bottom of the nori, layer in a single row of your favorite sushi ingredients like cucumber, smoked salmon, or avocado. Then carefully use the mat to roll it all up. A wet, sharp knife will do the trick in slicing the finished roll into 6-8 tasty pieces. Make 1 or 2 more rolls to share - try mixing and matching ingredients. Grab some spicy wasabi, sushi ginger and soy sauce for dipping.

STEP 3: SET THE MOOD. Shop our assortment of affordable Asian-inspired table linens, plus elegant lanterns and candles to create a wonderful, warm ambiance. Pour some delicious sake (or try sampling a flight of 2 or 3 types for fun). Start with an easy-to make appetizer like miso soup or seaweed salad, and then bring on the sushi! Your sushi night is served in sumptuous style, budget-friendly and hassle-free.
