I tried making sushi by youtube video instructions alone. Sure there are master classes out there which you could try if you are really interested, but these videos were most informative for a novice like me. Click here for nigiri sushi (slices of raw fish on a bed of rice) video and here for maki sushi (rice and filling wrapped in seaweed sheet) video.
I made the several different sushi using just a few core items. Other than that, a very sharp knife and a bamboo mat for rolling your maki will come handy too.
short grain/Japanese sushi rice
nori (seaweed sheets)
Have fun trying!
