I think that sushi counter practice was very special because we had to prepare almost all of the fishes we had been doing for the past month and put them all together for display and to make sushi on the spot.
Even though this class was just practice, but every fishes needed to be prepared properly and sometimes you just get under-pressure and just blanked out.
My classmates suddenly asked “Can I have tuna, kappa-maki, hamachi and Tamago?”, all at once, and that was pressure. On top of that, they were looking at how I would make sushi and made comments on the details as well.
It was very different from normal lessons where you would do 1 fish at a time. I was very excited to be doing the counter practice.
