The very best way to team tempura up with sushi. You’ll appreciate the crunch and sweetness of shrimp tempura with every bite of the vinegary sushi rice. This is excellence!
So much fun to make! Colorful avocados make a striped pattern that looks like a caterpillar, but we promise—no insect ingredients in this one. A classic American roll.
Sushi Rice Bowl Tub
This traditional sushi rice tub is made of Sawara cypress wood, which absorbs unwanted moisture from the rice, so that adding vinegar doesn’t affect the moisture level.
Sushi Rolling Mat
The classic rolling mat used to make sushi rolls, baked egg rolls, or sometimes used as placemats on the dining table. A very specialized and unique Japanese cooking tool.
Basically a hand fan, this is used to fan hot sushi rice and cool it down to prep it to the perfect sushi temperature. It also helps to get rid of excess moisture in the rice.

This month we featured a couple of classic rolls that you can find in almost any sushi restaurant here in America (although probably not in Japan). If you think about it, a sushi roll is probably the best way to get several ingredients to work together with rice in perfect harmony. The combinations are endless, and we’ve done a great job of expanding the sushi possibilities. Here are some of the most popular sushi rolls, made in the USA and loved by all.
It’s hard to believe anybody not knowing what a California Roll is at this day and age, but what’s amazing is how mainstream it’s become. Score one for imitation crab, too.
Well known for being one of the most photo-worthy of all the rolls, this is basically a California Roll decorated with all kinds of colorful fish—like yellowtail, tuna, salmon and eel.
Named this way because of the Philly cream cheese inside, other ingredients are salmon and avocado. Sounds hearty? That’s because it is—delicious but eat in moderation.
Another scary named sushi? Don’t worry, no spiders inside this one—the main ingredient is soft shelled crab, and for a dramatic effect the crab legs sticking out look like a spider’s.
