URI Friends of Oceanography course teaches
traditional art of sushi

Narragansett, RI -- September 18, 2001 -- Nowadays sushi is commonly known as raw fish on a piece of rice. But actually sushi means vinegared rice that is rolled with vegetables, fish or pickles, then wrapped in nori, and sliced into rounds.

To help people learn more about the art of designing beautiful and delicious sushi, Friends of Oceanography at the URI Graduate School of Oceanography is offering a short course on Sushi for Joy. The course will be held on Thursday, October 18, from 6-9 p.m. in the Hazard Rooms of the Coastal Institute Building on the URI Narragansett Bay Campus.

The course will be led by Kiyoko, who has practiced the art of designing sushi for most of her life. Participants will learn traditional and creative approaches to making a variety of sushi, including maki (rolled), chirashi (scattered on top of the rice), and nigiri (hand-shaped). They will then taste their creations accompanied by traditional Japanese tea.

The cost for the course is $30 per person for members of Friends of Oceanography and $40 for non-members. Due to limited seating, preregistration is required. For information or registration, call 874-6602.

Established in 1985 to support and promote the URI Graduate School of Oceanography, Friends of Oceanography informs and educates the membership and the general public about the scientific, technological, and environmental research that takes place at GSO. The organization sponsors public lectures, open houses, marine-related mini-courses, science cruises on Narragansett Bay, and an annual auction. The Friends office is located in the Coastal Institute building on URI's Narragansett Bay Campus. For information about Friends of Oceanography, call 874-6602.
