Default Sushi Party at Home

For my next birthday I get to pick the party theme.

Wife said my nekkid showgirls plan is out so I was thinking about the next best thing - an in home sushi party complete with chef. Maybe have 30 people for some tuna rolls, saki, sapporo etc.

Has anyone ever had a sushi chef in their home mixin up rolls? Did it work out? Should I stick with BBQ?

Problem is with the BBQ I'm usually the guy doing all the work. You know the rule, nobody makes BBQ as good as the owner of the grill it's made upon.

I'm thinkin the sushi idea might fly. But, a big bin of smoked ribs could work too!

My mother in law owned a couple of sushi restaurants until she retired a few years back. Needless to say, every major holiday we have California rolls, crab sticks, spicy tuna rolls, dynamite rolls, etc. Definite plus to the traditional ham/turkey, especially since there are so many Asian people there.
I say go for it.

Well it would be work, maybe more than BBQ, but you could be the Sushi chef yourself. I eat it once a week so my mom and wife got together and got me a "Sushi set". It included book, rooling mats, cool bowls and nice stained chop sticks. I've done it a couple of times and it's not that hard. Hardest part for me was making the rice. Problem is I don't have many friends that like it so it's not worth all the effort to make it just for me.

I've dabbled in the art of Sushi. If I were to prepare a meal for 30 in their home I would need one day to shop and gather fresh ingredients. I would need to arrive about 6 hours prior to serving time and need complete control of the kitchen and table and counter space. Serving food would occur over a 3 to 5 hour period depending on requirements of the host.

I can't imagine what a professional would charge.... I would do it for the dancing girls... no wait.. you said no dancers.

One viable option is a well thought out carry out experience. That would be the most cost effective.

Find your favorite sushi restaurant/take out place. Ask the owner about catering the party, or possibly hiring one of their sushi chef's for the evening. If they can not do it, they will know who can, and you can ask for referrences.

Always go that way with catered parties- that way you know the quailty. The restaurant owner should also realize the benefit of a providing a quality stuff to future customers.

Wiley,
I've made sushi several times at home and it is a lot of work. I can't imagine making enough rolls for 30 people as they go fast. I think having a chef come to the house would be awesome! Maybe have him make up a couple of trays of "entry sushi", california/cucumber rolls to handle the crowd, and then make specialty stuff.

I saw a show one time where they ate sushi off of a naked girl- Tell your wife it's art!

Happy upcoming Birthday

Wiley,

If you do go for the sushi party tell your wife you want Nyotaimori . Do a google search on it or "naked sushi". That's the way I'd go if I were looking for a sushi party....
