I’m afraid I can’t take full credit for the idea of sushi burritos, that honor goes to one of my chef idols, David Chang of Momofuku fame in New York. I will however try and take a little credit for transforming them into a heliski picnic lunch or afternoon tea snack after a big day in the deep stuff. When out there in the Boondocks served with a hot thermos of Jenmai Miso, with silken tofu and kombu strips, it is a pure energy brick. Scale it up for a great dinner party dish by providing saki bombs and plum wine!

The idea is to have some fun with the contents.

1. Start with a quality pesto wrap, smother it in guacamole, then lay a sheet of nori on top.

2. Begin layering the sushi rice with pickled ginger, wasabi, and mayonnaise.

3. Top with white crab meat, sockeye salmon, tuna and caviar along with cucumber strips, grated carrot, and mizuna before wrapping tightly and cutting on the bias.

Enjoy experimenting!

How to Be a Ski Bum

Everyone loves to talk about dream jobs, but in skiing, the real best job is often avoiding one. But if you really must be employed, combining skiing with work leads to one enviable business endeavor. We caught up with David ‘Gomez’ Johnson, owner/lead guide for Casa Tours in Chile and Argentina, about how he found himself the ultimate ski bum job: taking people on the most memorable ski runs of their lives, skiing powder all summer in South America, and giving clients a taste of the ski bum dream.
