On Tuesday P7 made Sushi. They watched a tutorial and took notes. After they made the sushi they got to try it. They could choose from fish, cucumber, pepper and avocado. They cut it in to smaller bits to eat it. Lots of people liked it but others didn’t. Then they all wrote a recipe on how to make sushi using their notes. They wrote down the method,the ingredients and equipment. One of the challenging things was when you were rolling up the sushi in tinfoil because it would come out and spill everywhere. Some people thought it tasted a lot better when you added soy sauce but others thought it was disgusting.They enjoyed making it and here is what some people thought of it.
Lucy and Skye said they liked it.
Immy said she loved it.
Anna said she liked it but would prefer it without sea weed.
