Raw fish, like a pair of dice and an office chair, is exponentially more fun in rolled form. Harness this vital skill with today's Groupon: for $450, you get a private, in-home sushi lesson for two people from Teach Me Sushi (a $900 value).
Teach Me Sushi's experienced seaweed senseis instruct couples in the fine art of sushi preparation and presentation. Geared toward rookie rollers, this 3.5-hour, in-home tutorial starts with fundamentals such as cooking rice and cutting vegetables, as well as how to skin, grade, and juggle fish. Sushi styles on the syllabus include sashimi, which showcases the natural flavor and texture of raw sliced seafood, and nigiri, which presses one lucky ingredient onto a comfortable cushion of rice. Stuffed with a single filling, each slender maki roll yields six nori-wrapped niblets, and a peek through the kaleidoscopic cross sections of the packed futomaki roll reveal multiple ingredients and mosaics of John Candy. Pupils can also conquer the classic california roll, and each instructor will demonstrate how to elegantly display each edible achievement. Unlike so many macaroni art projects, the masterpieces created during this class serve as a delicious dinner for two.
