Me toooo! I spent my restaurant life bouncing between izakaya and sushi bars. Many of my friends ask me for sushi parties (and they have no idea what they’re asking for). As others have mentioned, cooking in a commercial kitchen is an entirely different beast than a home kitchen. I almost always say no when I’m asked to make sushi for friends at their house parties.If I cook for friends I spend way more.on ingredients than if I were to take them out to a restaurant...
For example, for last tailgate party (dolphins vs patriots game) i spent over $100 just for burgers.. I didn't even eat one as I was completey wasted from shotgunning beers and chugging vodka cocktails..
The last time I did was as a favor for a recently married couple and I dropped $700 just on ingredients. It would have been waaaaay cheaper and easier just to get some party platters from a local sushi joint, but they wanted experience of somebody making it in their home.
