Most of us have been there; that invite to hit a sushi joint that you turn down because of a lack of chopstick skill experience.  Well, now is the opportunity to change the game.  Simply make one (or all) of the recipes below, whip out  your chopsticks and practice away.  You’ll be a pro in no-time, we believe in you.

We have all been there, but don’t let those nervous jitters get to you.  These meals are beginner-approved.  Tofu and eggplant are chopped into larger pieces which makes grasping with chopsticks an easier process.  Before you get started, remember, practice makes perfect.
