Auburn University’s Tiger Dining will be hosting a free cooking class on how to make sushi this Wednesday, October 14th at 6 p.m. in Terrell Hall, on the hill.
The class will be teaching participants how to make several different types of sushi which include a California Roll and a basic Crab Roll. Anyone in the Auburn area is welcome to attend. You do not have to be a student or faculty of the university.
“We mostly do have students but we do have some faculty and staff that come,” said Gina Groome, marketing manager for Tiger Dining. “Sometimes the wives will even sign up for the class and bring their husbands and make them watch while they practice learning how to make it.”
All materials are provided including seaweed paper and a rolling mat. Cooking skills are not required to attend the class.
The executive sushi chef on campus, Chef Chris, will be teaching the class. He makes all of the sushi sold at Outtakes, in the Student Union, and at Cub Stop, in the Village.
Each month Tiger Dining presents a new cooking class for the community, faculty and students. The idea came from other universities that offer free cooking classes in kitchens on their campus. Auburn took this idea and created its own cooking events.
“We try to never repeat the same class,” said Groome. “We want the chef to get involved and be creative when coming up with a class to teach. The classes are chosen by the different chef’s on campus each month.”
Tiger Dining’s previous cooking classes include classes on how to make truffles and bruschetta. The have also had an oil and vinegar class where participants could learn about the different types of products. The most recent class taught was on how to make guacamole in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month.
For most of the cooking classes offered it is not necessary to sign up. For the sushi class, however, it is necessary because of limited supplies. To sign up go to http://www.auburn.edu/dining
