The last meal in my kitchen before redecorating for Christmas dinner. Wife loves all the fancy setup and decor, but I'm happy with the simple and understated setup. I like letting my food be the decor. Bright colors and the attractive display of our sushi party (2 guests, wife and I). Overkill, nah, we enjoy every minute! What's life if you don't live it.

Kuramoto oysters on the half, wasabi greens and unfiltered sake as an appetizer.

Wow does that look good!!! My daughter and her husband just took a tripe to Japan(supposedly to watch a couple rugby games) but the only photos we got were of food. 99.9% sushi.

Point for sure

Absolutely scrumptious, S-met. That mouthwatering layout brings back wonderful memories of a former SMF member.

Wow! Really nice. Slices of Sashimi look perfect. Why didn't you show the centers of at least half of each roll. I bet they are pretty too...JJ

Beautiful plates! Did you pickle your own ginger?
No. Its so cheap and available at local shops. Same for the octopus, squid and seaweed salads.

Frozen actually works better and is usually more "fresh." Easier to slice thinly too.

Great idea, maybe next time. But they probably look better whole. My rolling skills are lacking.

Unbelievable spread there, that’s impressively executed and I’ll bet the cost of that was nothing to scoff at. If someone invited me to dinner and laid that out in front of me I’d be speechless.

Did you make the salads and cut radish etc. or buy some of that stuff pre made?

Cost was nothing to scoff at for sure. But sometimes you just need splurge.

Squid, octopus, seaweed and pickled ginger was pre-made. There are several great Asian markets about 45 min from me. Oto's market in particular has a great fish counter. They checked each oyster before bagging for sale.

We shredded the daikon ourselves, used one of the wavy y-peeler (https://www.templeofthai.com/cookware/cutters-peelers-graters/papaya-salad-peeler-kiwi)
