Join ACES Naturalist Ali Hager for sushi making, a skill that was passed down to her from her Japanese grandfather. Sushi making skipped a generation in Ali’s family, as her grandfather (“Oji”) feared passing Japanese culture to his children would cause them to face the same discrimination he endured during and after World War II. Together we will learn about Japanese-American involvement in the war, traditional Japanese customs and table manners, and discuss basic ingredients, utensils, and techniques to make primarily vegetarian sushi rolls.
Participants must RSVP below; program will be capped at 10 people.
This is a free workshop, donations welcome.
ACES and the Toklat family are excited to offer several new community programs in the coming months. The programs will take place every Sunday, 5-8 pm, at the Catto Center at Toklat. Each member of Toklat will focus on getting back to our roots, both as individuals formed by the culture of our childhoods and as a species interacting with our environment. And what better place to do so than a cabin named Toklat, named for the headwaters, the origins, of a glacially carved valley? Join us at the headwaters of the Castle Creek Valley as we get back to our roots through the following programs.
5PM - 8PM
