To make your sushi nice and beautiful and presentable, you always want to make just a bit of a finishing touch and we know how gorgeous the Japanese can make the sushi look. Now it’s not possible for me to make any other carving but I can show you a few shortcuts just to make your sushi platter look utmost beautiful. This one I want to show you is just simple carrot that we sliced thin thin as a possible and we just cut it with a small cookie cutter into little flowers and it will really juice up the ordinary platter. Then the second thing I want to show you is just some lovely cucumber. If we just sliced up as thin as possible and how we basically did this is cut your cucumber into thin slices, remove the first part and then you just basically just stop before you reach the pit because you don’t want the sogginess of the pit and you just keep on slicing it and you’ve got beautiful cucumber that you can use in your rolls or just as a garnish, along the side which is really nice and presentable. Then we’ve got these, they are gorgeous I love them. They are the cucumber pine leaves which is really just something to juice it up and what we’re going to use again, the other half of the cucumber and we’re just going to remove the two sides of the cucumber again and now we’re just going to take our cucumber and just stop at the top. You’re going to make thin incisions in your cucumber basically up to halfway. Pass it through and now what we’re going to do is just stick each little leaf in. It’s very easy to do. Nothing funny done is it. It’s going to make your platter just stand out from the rest. There you go, very easy, add on to that one and then another thing that I would just want to show you, this is quite time consuming so what you do is take your whole cucumber and you have this cutting motion where you get in between the skin of the cucumber basically with your knife and you just remove like a thin layer off the cucumber till you’ve got this whole sheet of cucumber rolled up like this. This is really pretty and we use this in our hand rolls and anything and you basically can just slice it up as thin as possible and again it looks beautiful on your platters and in your rolls even just as you should --. Now the next one I want to show you is how to make the wasabi leaf. Wasabi leaves are bit easy again to make but again, it’s not really time consuming so we’re going to have our wasabi powder here and I’m just going to add two teaspoons of wasabi powder and in the same amount of liquid, water. I’m just going to mix this up. You guys can see this is still runny, I’m just going to add a bit more powder to this one and just keep it moving. You want to get rid of any lumps. I don’t think it will be nice to enjoy your wasabi with a lump in. A bit more and now when it’s like this, it’s nice and movable. So what I’m going to do is I’m going to remove all of this paste and as I said, wasabi is really a beautiful just hint of goodness and you don’t want to overdo it. Don’t kill yourself or show everyone that you’re the bravest one around the table. So the only thing we’re going to do now is just going to shape it a bit in my hand. I’m going to put it on my chopping board and just keep on shaping. There we go and then I’m basically just going to make a nice incision over there. There you go, wasabi leaf.
