UCO ASIAN-AMERICAN STUDENT ASSOCIATION OFFERS LESSONS IN SUSHI MAKING

The University of Central Oklahoma’s Asian-American Student Association (AASA), in partnership with Passport UCO’s “Passport to Japan,” will host its annual UCO AASA Sushi Rolling Night from 6-8 p.m. Nov. 20 in Ballrooms B and C of the Nigh University Center. It is free and open to the public.           

Attendees will learn about the popular Japanese dish and how to make a California roll, an American variety of rolled sushi, and a tempura shrimp roll, a sushi that includes deep-fried shrimp.

“Sushi is stereotypically thought of as having raw fish in it, when there is a variety of sushi available,” said Jeff Ma, president of Central’s AASA. “We want to educate the campus and community about what amazing food this culture has to offer.”           

Initiated in 2004, the Passport UCO program selects a country or region to celebrate during the fall semester. Its mission is to inspire unity and understanding through events that are both educational and entertaining for students and the surrounding community.
