New Sushi Hand Roll Boxes at Nobu (Plus Pro Tips From The Master)

The only thing more fun than eating sushi is making sushi - and now you can do it Nobu-style in the comfort of your own home. The venerable Japanese-Peruvian chain just launched a new hand roll box that comes with all of the fixin's you need for truly great sushi, for those who want to spice up their next dinner party with a little rolling action (and not like that - we mean food!).

The box includes several varieties of fish (tuna, yellowtail, salmon, shrimp, king crab), as well as salmon roe, tamago, shiso, scallion, avocado, asparagus, cucumber, spicy sauce, wasabi, ginger, soy sauce, sushi rice and nori. It serves approximately 10-12 people and costs $550, which really isn't too pricey when you consider how much sushi you're getting.

Last night, we got a chance to check out the box at Nobu 57 and were pleasantly surprised to find that master chef Nobu Matsuhisa himself was on hand to offer amateur sushi-making tips. His No. 1 rule? "Clean hands!" he said, laughing. On a more serious note, he told us that practice makes perfect when it comes to making sushi. "The second time [trying your hand at sushi] is always better than the first. You have to keep trying."

To order the box, contact Nobu's special events department at 212-757-3063. The box will soon be available in all cities where there are Nobu locations.
