Chef Apple, who has spent years preparing dishes for various celebrities and diplomats, doles out sage cooking advice in her kitchen classroom, teaching apprentices how to roll seafood during two-hour sushi-making classes on Saturdays and Sundays. After doling out bamboo sushi mats, mounds of rice, compliments on shiny hair, and an assortment of fillings such as avocado, crab, and tuna, Chef Apple guides students through the sushi-making process. Novices slice fish and vegetables, gingerly spread rice across delicate seaweed sheets, and convert the combined ingredients into a convenient tubular form. At the end of the class, students depart with bellies full of food, a full suite of sushi-making equipment, and a bottle of sake to enliven culinary gatherings or tea parties.
