On the Table – Food & Fun at the Library | March Class: Sushi (middle & high school)
On the Table is a series of monthly food and nutrition focused events designed to be an opportunity for us to come together as a community to cook and create, learn about the food we eat, and to have some fun. Each month’s intended audience will rotate, and this month is just for teens. We’ll learn how to create our own signature sushi rolls. We will not use any raw fish in our sushi creations, but some cooked seafood options are available for participants to sample. Registration is required for this FREE event so that we can plan for supplies.
