What do you serve a group of mathematicians on International Pi Day? Serve them this sushi in the round, where Pi and Pie make there appearance in many different ways, from the molded Pi wasabi to the circumference of the pie. 

Sushi Pi Pie:  

Ingredients: 

2 Cups Sushi Rice

Sushi Vinegar

Wasabi Powder

Pi Ice Cube Mold

Nori Sheets

Sesame Seeds ( black & sesame)

Masago

Pi Ice Cube Mold

Assorted Sushi Rolls

Ginger

SoySauce

Pie Pan

Recipe:

To make the Sushi Pi Pie, cook the sushi rice. I used a pressure cooker. Once the rice is cooked, add 4-6  tbsp sushi vinegar to the rice and place it on a baking sheet to cool. Add a cool damp cloth or towel on top of the rice to prevent the rice from drying out. 

Next, make the wasabi pi. I didn't get specific measurements for the wasabi. Use a couple of tbsp of powder and add water until you get the right consistency. You can keep adding more powder and water as needed. Spoon the wasabi paste into the pi mold and use your index finger to smooth the paste into the mold. Place the mold into the freezer for at least 1 hour. 

To make the pie crust, have a bowl of water next to you before you start. Gently press a small layer of cooled sushi rice into the bottom of the pie pan. Dip your hands into the bowl of water as needed to prevent the rice from sticking. Next, layer the sushi rolls onto the bottom of the rice crust. Use the remaining rice to make the top layer of crust. Layer the rice over the sushi rolls.

Decorate the top of the pie with sesame seeds, masago and nori confetti. To make the nori confetti, cut a sheet of  nori in half and then cut it into small strips. Use scissors to cut the strips into really thin pieces. 

Remove the wasabi pi from the freezer. Gently run the bottom of the mold under hot water for a few seconds. The wasabi pi should come right out. Place it on top of the pie. Serve each slice with soy sauce and ginger. 

enjoy!
Good luck! Again, beautiful work.
