I received my Lekue Makisu mat in the mail today and had to celebrate the occasion by making maki. I still need to try out my new french food mill...stay tuned.
Glad we have a place around the corner where on a whim I can pick up fresh yellow tail that made the maki worth having. I am a little rusty at rolling but I think by my third roll I was back in the swing of things. Husband took the pictures, fishy hands and all. The mat is great, but not essential. I would say it's not as rigid as a bamboo mat, however allows to get the rolls tight enough.Above: Yellow tail maki with wasabi tobiko, daikon and shiso leaf
