Yutaka Vegetarian Two Course Dinner Date Review: October 2017

Blogging HQ received a batch of lovely Yutaka goodies, that included the sushi kit for 2, silken tofu, wasabi peas, sesame seeds, Japanese style curry kit and some of the lovely Chings champion soybean noodles, to create an authentic Japanese vegetarian two course dinner date meal.

The Super Sushi kit for two includes a recipe booklet, boil in the bag rice, seasoning, nori sheets, ginger, wasabi paste, soya sauce and a rolling mat. Make your date interactive and roll out the fun times with your other half.
