Sushi is one of the more complicated things to make. Sure, it requires raw fish, which seems like it would be simple enough to handle, but the overall process that goes into making sushi is actually very complicated, and requires a good amount of skill and practice. It’s not like throwing a grilled cheese sandwich on the grill; you will need to put in a little bit of effort to make some quality sushi.
If you want to learn to make sushi, of course, you will need to practice a bit, but the iOS app called Teach Me Sushi will help you take a step in the right direction. It comes with videos, guides, and basic information that will help you get started and turn you into a sushi making pro. Imagine the surprised look on your friends faces when you invite them over for sushi and it ends up being sushi home-made by you. Teach Me Sushi can help make this happen.
Best of all, you can grab Teach Me Sushi from the App Store free for a limited time. If you want to become a sushi master without spending the $4.99 that the app normally costs, you need to download this app quickly.
Using The App
The main screen of the app features all of tutorials and videos for the app. The first one you are going to want to click is “Introduction.” This will take you to a video that shows you the basics of making sushi. If you don’t have any experience, this is the place to start.
The main screen also has videos for preparing your equipment, choosing the fish, cooking the rice, and preparing the vegetables. If you want to get the most out of the app, you should really watch each of these videos, as they will be quite useful as you go forward with making your delicious sushi.
Below the introduction videos are the actual recipes, but we will get to those later. First, you will want to check out the ingredients option on the menu on the bottom of the screen. From here, you will enter how many people you are going to make sushi for, and then you will choose the type of sushi you are making. Once you make these selections, the app will give you a shopping list for exactly what you need to make the sushi you want. The app will even show you where you can buy the recommended ingredients in your area.
The next section of the app will tell you what kind of equipment you need. If you’re an experienced sushi maker, this information is probably elementary, but for people new to the process, knowing what kind of equipment you will need is important. Just like with the ingredients, the app can tell you where there is a store to buy the important equipment.
The app also comes with a rice timer, that will guide you through the process of making rice for your sushi. All you need to do is follow the instructions and click the “Start Timer” button from within the app. If you do what the app says, your rice should come out perfect, and be ready for your sushi.
Earlier I mentioned recipes, and now that you have all the equipment you need, you can go back and check them out. Each of the recipes in the app comes with a video that will show you exactly how to make it. If you prefer to see it in written form, the app has a step by step option that you can follow as you make the sushi. There is also a section called About This Sushi section that will give you a little more information about that particular item.
The app comes with eight recipes out of the box, and you can purchase more via in-app purchase. Each one costs $0.99, so if you want to make a wider variety of sushi, you can take advantage of this section of the app. Of course, you can use the built-in options and never spend another dime, but it’s nice to have the option to expand the app if you should so choose.
If you are looking to become a master of preparing sushi, look no further than Teach Me Sushi. It’s incredibly simple to use, and as long as you follow its directions, you will be ready to start serving delicious sushi to your friends in no time. Don’t wait though, because you can only grab the app free from the App Store for a limited time.
