Sushi first became popular during the Civil War, when hardtack rations ran out and army wives began wrapping fresh fish in seaweed and training carrier pigeons to deliver them to soldiers' waiting mouths. Fight for flavor with today's Groupon to Sushi Bears in Findlay Market. Choose between the following options:
• For $30, you get a sushi-making class for two people (a $60 value).
• For $100, you get a private sushi-making party for five people at your home (a $200 value).
The sibling senseis behind Sushi Bears train willing hands in the delicate and delicious art of sushi making. Couples, friends, and conjoined substitute teachers can explore roll rolling with a partner class, during which Sushi Bears' chefs impart ingredient expertise and demonstrate the basics of preparing palate-pleasing creations over the course of one to two hours. After the lesson, chefs gift their students with a bamboo rolling mat and sushi knife, sparing students the labor of using sharp elbows to cut sushi at home. Each pair also receives one instructional DVD for at-home technique refreshers.
Private at-home sushi-rolling parties supply a chef to lead five-person galas in sushi basics. Students will each tenderly shape three sushi masterpieces, then devour them suddenly and without mercy. Everyone gets a bamboo rolling mat and a sushi knife, a preferable party favor to brown paper sacks full of sugar-free hard candies, and the host receives a sushi-making DVD.
Weekly Panda Chef classes led by Chef Dan and are held at the historic Findlay Market, Ohios oldest remaining indoor outdoor farmers market. Attendees can enjoy hundreds of shops and vendors before putting on their cooking apron.
