Felicia Day & Robin Thorsen Cooking Segment: Mondo Sushi Rollers! – The Flog – Ep 12


[MUSIC PLAYING] FELICIA DAY: Hello everybody. Felicia Day here. It is Flog time. I know what that means,
English people. This week I am cooking again
but first, a reminder. I’m going to be at Vid-Con
next week and I need you guys’ help. I’ve decided to do a Flog show
from there but I want to ask all my fans one question. The question is, what is that
question going to be? Que? Please leave your clever
suggestions in the comments and I will integrate
the winning one into the whole segment. And I’ll send you
something free. Ah! See! Now you’re typing. I understand you
people so well. All right. It’s time for Fave Five. Now. See. I was going to say now. I didn’t say now. No, I just said it
three times. Number one, Russian people know
how to make purses well out of felt. Or at least this Etsy based
Krukru Studios is. For Doctor Who fans, they make
this amazing Dalek purse. But I ordered this reel
to reel purse! How cool is this thing? Look! It’s got pockets. I can put my reel in here. Wacka, wacka. The cool thing was that it came
in this box with a lot of Russian writing around the sides
but I forgot I ordered it so I thought it was some
sort of terrorist thing. But it wasn’t. It was just a purse I
forgot I ordered. Russians aren’t terrorists
anyway, are they? Hmm. I’m stupid. Number two this week was linked
to me by my friend Jason Bergman. It’s a website called Fan
Write Fridays that’s for people who want to learn how
to write comic books. Every week you get
an assignment. You get six days to write six to
eight pages of your comic, and then you post them on the
forums for other people to give feedback on. I think it’s a really awesome
idea to create a safe, creative environment for
people on the internet. On another serious self-help
note, number three is a recipe for unicorn poop. Viewer BeanDemon linked
it to me. See this is why I love you guys
giving me suggestions. Number four is an iOS game that
I really enjoy called Rune Raiders. It’s a turn-based strategy game
where you hire heroes, level them up, and then hope
they’re in the right configuration as you proceed
step by step to defeat your enemies. I have this theory that playing
strategy games helps you improve your work process
by organizing your brain. I justify a lot of video game
playing like this so don’t you dare contradict me
with science. Scientist commenter peoples. Lastly, I decided to clean my
house up after a year of neglect, and having my
priorities straight, I organized my dice collection. Look. I went to the craft store and I
bought little boxes for each color and then I organized
them by color. This is my fire mage, and then
we’ve got my ice, and then we’ve got the warlock
which is purple. Am I missing any? No, don’t tell me because
then I’ll have to buy more little boxes. I’ll have to get more
little boxes. Yes! In our segment this week, me and
Robin try to cook sushi. How’s it go? Not well. Hey we’re back with Robin. ROBIN THORSEN: Hey. FELICIA DAY: Hi. ROBIN THORSEN: Hi. FELICIA DAY: And we’re going
to make sushi today because neither of us have
ever done that. ROBIN THORSEN: Nope. FELICIA DAY: I found this
really cool blog on Marisabaggett.com, and the name
of her blog is In the Kitchen with a Southern
Sushi Chef, which I thought was kind of cool. ROBIN THORSEN: We are making
tuna sushi roll with bacon and apples. We have some nori, some apples,
some scallions, dried apples, sushi rice, bacon,
and our tuna. FELICIA DAY: We need to cut
the tuna into quarter inch wide strips. Whenever you touch the
sushi rice, you need to put your fingers– we should probably wash
our hands, right? Always be sanitary. We’re going to take the rice as
instructed here and we’re going to put it on here. But we got to dip our
hands in here. ROBIN THORSEN: Dip it. Let’s pound. FELICIA DAY: Let’s
try to aspire– ROBIN THORSEN: To be like
the southern sushi chef. FELICIA DAY: We can pat down
anything together. ROBIN THORSEN: All right. FELICIA DAY: Oh, that is handy
to have a rag here. ROBIN THORSEN: Yeah, you’re
welcome for that idea. Flip seaweed over. FELICIA DAY: How is that
going to work? OK. Flip it over. ROBIN THORSEN: One,
two, three. FELICIA DAY: No! Wait! Listen. How is this not going
to stick? Shouldn’t this be
on this thing? ROBIN THORSEN: Not yet. No. FELICIA DAY: OK. So this is this. So let’s just put this
on top of here. Just in case. Because eventually– ROBIN THORSEN: And then you’re
going to flip it? FELICIA DAY: No. I don’t think we
should do this. ROBIN THORSEN: What are
you talking about? So we lift this up. FELICIA DAY: This is
not a good deal. It’s going to stick. How is it not going
to stick on there? ROBIN THORSEN: Hold on. And then just solidify the
fact that we’re doing. FELICIA DAY: Why are you
patting it on there? ROBIN THORSEN: So now what we’re
going to do is place the tuna like this. FELICIA DAY: And that
horizontal in the middle of the nori. And it says to make sure
it extends to both edges of the nori. ROBIN THORSEN: Yeah. Bacon. FELICIA DAY: Bacon. So you can cut it into
little pieces– ROBIN THORSEN: Or
use the strips. FELICIA DAY: But I was like
let’s just use strips. And it says one piece. I want three. ROBIN THORSEN: All right. I think maybe not use
all that apple. That just seems like
a lot of apple. FELICIA DAY: You’re supposed
to taste stuff as you go along, right? I like to just save
it for the end. There’s a lot of vinegar
in that. ROBIN THORSEN: Now
let’s roll it. FELICIA DAY: All right. ROBIN THORSEN: OK. FELICIA DAY: Oh my god. ROBIN THORSEN: Oh, fu– shit. FELICIA DAY: Keep going. Keep going. Just keep going. Shove it. Now wonder sushi chefs have
such small– eh– ROBIN THORSEN: I don’t know. FELICIA DAY: No wonder sushi
chefs have such soft hands. I don’t know what I was
going to say there. ROBIN THORSEN: This
is a mean roll. Look how mondo that is! FELICIA DAY: It’s a burrito. ROBIN THORSEN: It is. It’s a burrito roll. Eh, OK. FELICIA DAY: Now we need to use
the bamboo mat and form this properly. The finishing move. It’s like when you hairspray
your bangs. ROBIN THORSEN: Yeah. OK. I think– FELICIA DAY: I think
that’s good. ROBIN THORSEN: All right. FELICIA DAY: All right. Look at that. What! ROBIN THORSEN: Mondo roll. FELICIA DAY: Mondo roll. ROBIN THORSEN: OK. FELICIA DAY: OK. So we need to cut it
in six pieces. You want some bacon? ROBIN THORSEN: Yeah. Crunchy. FELICIA DAY: Always
make extra bacon. ROBIN THORSEN: She said do
this, and then do this. To knock the water down. I feel confident. FELICIA DAY: OK. Root chug, chug! We need like a finishing
zsa-zsu. ROBIN THORSEN: I’m sorry? No. That’s exactly what she
said not to do. FELICIA DAY: Really? ROBIN THORSEN: Yeah. She said cut it like like
you’re cutting. FELICIA DAY: As far as
ingredients go I want all these in my mouth. ROBIN THORSEN: Yeah. Look at this. FELICIA DAY: I mean, this is
like, two inches tall. This is not how you normally
buy sushi. At the Robin and Felicia sushi
shop you get value. If you make your own, just
post your pictures. ROBIN THORSEN: Let’s see
if you can beat us too. FELICIA DAY: Yeah! Let’s see if you can beat us! First try. First-timers. You want to eat a piece? ROBIN THORSEN: OK. FELICIA DAY: You want
chopsticks? ROBIN THORSEN: Do
you have them? FELICIA DAY: No. See better with the
extra bacon. All right. Look. ROBIN THORSEN: Down the hatch. FELICIA DAY: [INAUDIBLE]. ROBIN THORSEN: It’s actually
pretty good. FELICIA DAY: So thanks to
Marissa Baggett for letting me use her Southern Sushi
Chef recipe. See you later! And check out Geek and Sundry
bonus Thursday this week when we upload an extra video
of me and robin cooking dessert sushi. Don’t get spoiled. It won’t happen often. All right. Our question of note from Lord
Michael who asks, I heard you could freestyle rap. Can you? Dear Lord Michael, I’m not sure
where you heard that. [HIP HOP MUSIC] Yo, yo, yo– I’m Felicia Day and here’s
what I gotta say. I’m in my garden. Here we don’t be cardin’. You come see flowers. This gives you powers. Yo, whatev! Here’s a blueberry
on blueberry. It’s two– I can’t do this. OK. But no, I can’t. Sincerely, Felicia Day. OK Lord Michael, your letter
is on its way. All right. That’s our show this week. And aren’t you glad I didn’t
mention The Flog shirt I’ve been wearing which you can
get on www.jinx.com or geekandsundry.com/shop. Did you get that? Did you write it down? OK. I’ll see you next week. Bye. [MUSIC PLAYING]

  15. Marios Gregoriou says:

  26. Beef Ingot says:

  28. MediaCastleX says:

    T-shirt?? Where can I get a poster of Felicia Day!?!?! <–Do you note my emphatic punctuation to express my intensive inquis-i-tive-ness? yes, she really did look great in that T… =p

  29. Lizziebean says:

    I'm pretty sure you were supposed to flip the rice and nori onto the bamboo mat then use it to help with the rolling. Not just the final shaping. Probably.

  30. MrRolnicek says:

    Didn't go well? I'm salivating furiously here.

  31. Trevor Cline says:

    My god, the rap caught me completely off guard, I can't breathe

  32. GateGeek says:

    Oh man…I REALLY want sushi with bacon in it now.
    Tuna, avo, and bacon. OMM.

  33. ExactLeigh says:

    Wait you dont cook the tuna!? Ew no thank you!

  34. Tyler Nguyencuu says:

    No they do a ceviche kind of style, its cooked by lightly grilling and lemon juice the natural acid cooks it. So for the most part sushi is still raw, but edible where you won't get sick

  35. Darknightingale says:

    Now I want bacon!….And sushi with my plum wine!

  36. sepharic420 says:

    watching Felicia Day eat bacon is kind of a turn on.. not gunna lie

  37. AJillySandwich says:

    Have you never heard of sushi before? the fish is supposed to be raw.

  38. Doug The Moleman says:

    Extra Futo Maki!

  39. Tim Ford says:

    Cowboy Bebop soundtrack! <3

  40. kiwilemonandlime says:

    Oh god honey I think you mean rapping

  41. MsTwte says:

    In all honesty i love most of her shows but in IRL she can be quite the bitch.

  42. MsTwte says:

    I've met her twice both times she's been ill mannered and slightly hostile. Maybe i caught her at a bad time.

  43. fangirl writer says:

    yep

  44. Hjtrne says:

    F___ y__ for having enough money to (pretend to) play dice games!!!!!

  45. Patric Nilsson says:

    Aaah, a geeky girl who isn't a vegitarian! There is so much to love about Felicia Day.

  46. Chewycookies says:

    omg omg omg just went on Wikipedia and the flog is on there!!! OMG so awesome

  47. Cameron Creasy says:

    Not even the Russians like the Russians. "Chey, Chomrade

  48. Ashleigh Sorensen says:

    Wow, because you seem really legit with the false name, lack of profile information, and long list of trolling comments.

  49. 123grit says:

    they didnt make it right, the seaweed is suppose to be on the outside and the main fish is on the rice

  50. ZoeAlleyne says:

    It is called an Inside Out Sushi Roll.

  51. Iwillnever befamous says:

    Your channel is the only one that makes me laugh out loud..like Shane Dawson's channel I just watch and it's the same thing or any other video my face is like ".___." But I can't help but laugh out loud to yours! 😀

  52. Zenzenzel says:

    after watching this… im craving sushi @[email protected]

  53. ToddJ22z says:

    I organize my dice by how many sides not color, but heh I don't judge. 🙂

  54. drunkbygreentea says:

    watching them make that roll hurt me…

  55. Adamantium9001 says:

    1. From my layman's perspective on the topic, a dice collection on a scale anywhere near yours strikes me as a little extreme even for a tabletop RPG player.
    2. Unless the contents of each of those compartments in that organizer box is a palette swap of all the others, you should have sorted them by number of sides, since practicality is, y'know, the point of having stuff organized >_>

  56. Kelly Bratina says:

    Guys… it is their Sushi let therm roll it how they like it!

  57. Mia the Dog says:

    "Let's see if you can beat us."

    I'd like to beat that…

  58. Brian Lara says:

    That rap was too funny

  59. AJillySandwich says:

    Sashimi is just fish/meat. In other types of sushi there are also a lot of raw fish, it's not only in sashimi. (like for example in nigiri and maki.)

  60. Calendhorable says:

    While I agree that sushi is better raw it is not necessary for sushi. Sushi is a reference to sour rice not raw fish.

  61. Rich Aulet says:

    Cook sushi? isn't that an oxymoron?

  62. niiru0815 says:

    You should've used the bamboo mat with a plastic sheet when you start the roll and not too much rice on the nori sheet or it will become really fluffy.

  63. wtfhackszwtf says:

    #got em

  64. Auto TinkerPaw says:

    While I know Felicia will probably not see this, here are some tips for if you remake your roll.
    1. Place a sheet of plastic wrap on the bamboo roller and spread at least half of the amount you used on the nori. Leave at least a one inch strip of nori on one end so it can stick to the other when you roll it.
    2.Use less than what you think your going to need. The more you use the bigger the roll will be in the end.
    3.Cut in half, then half again. That way all the pieces are about the same size

  65. keylala0222 says:

    you can have some that is lightly cooked, but ya.

  66. TLViolynn says:

    please look up what sushi is ..or you know you could know what you are watching before you post like a moron.

  67. TLViolynn says:

    I'm sorry,If you asked me I would have made it right.

  68. TLViolynn says:

    I've also been told that if you're not doing it the California type (rice out,fish in.) that you can wet the nori.

    I like to cheat with mine I wet the nori after it has been rolled and then put it in the freezer for a bit so it's a bit firmer.

  69. TLViolynn says:

    no it's like the california roll,which is rice out, fish in.

  70. Rich Turner says:

    I'm always shocked by the low view count on these videos

  71. ExactLeigh says:

    at the time I didn't realize It was suppose to be raw. Since than I've had many sushi, and love it ^_^

  72. Eric H says:

    Was it just me thinking for a moment Felicia was showcasing her boobs with her final 'goodby'?

  73. Rana Chakrabarti says:

    There needs to be at least 400% more bacon

  74. Swiftsong Radio says:

    6:42 The same banjo music as Sjin's Feed The World Theme Tune!!

  75. One above all says:

    such retarded video.

  76. Tim Burns says:

    It doesn't have to be. I knew a Korean lady who made sushi rolls that didn't even have fish at all, and they were amazing!

  77. Tim Burns says:

    Well, she called it sushi, and she's Korean, so I'm gonna take her word for it.

  78. Tim Burns says:

    Then why did she use the correct names for kimchi and all the other Korean dishes she made? I'm not arguing that something called kimbap doesn't exist, but I think your assertion that kimbap is any sushi-type roll without raw fish in it is erroneous. Why don't you try googling "vegetable sushi?" I guess you could say that any time somebody makes a sushi roll without raw fish, it's actually kimbap and they're just calling it sushi to make it easier for us, but there's no real evidence of that.

  79. Tim Burns says:

    "I don't see why you're trying to make something so trivial into a full blast argument." I kinda felt the same way about you, to be honest. The previous poster made a statement that sushi is supposed to have raw fish, and I was adding my own personal experience of sushi that had ingredients other than raw fish. Just because I'm trying to add further knowledge to the discussion doesn't mean I think I know everything.

  80. Joshua Kline says:

    Reading these comments is interesting… but the difference between Gimbap and Sushi is the way the rice is prepared… so he might actually be correct in saying she was making sushi because of the vinegar mixture of the rice where Gimbap is usually just a steamed rice or the use of sesame oil. Not to mention Sushi is the name for the vinegar mixture rice dish that is added with other things not just raw fish.

  81. James Barrett says:

    People accuse her of putting it on…. She has a dice collection….'Nuff said!

  82. Zach Frazier says:

    Felicia, you look soooooooo good in this episode! 😀

  83. culix26 says:

    That was way better than those japanese guys that made my sushi in front of me. haha

  84. Empathicdreams87 says:

    I love all of you people who for some reason think that sushi means raw fish. Please just look up the definition of sushi… I'll wait.

  85. westempire0 says:

    bahaaha that's the fattest sushi ever!!!

  86. Omaro Chindo says:

    This just cracked me up…

  87. Panda says:

    My sushi-loving heart is crying >_<

  88. Francis a Watcher says:

    Felicia's freestyle better than Iggy's shit music

  89. ASYella says:

    i have pride in sushi rolling since i'am a sushi chef and this was so hard to watch but funny at same time… >.<
    practice makes perfect haha
    tip to u would be dont wet ur hands too much, only dampen ur hands and it'll be fine (a few rice will still stick but bare with it even though it is annoying at times)

  90. William Thompson says:

    bacon on sushi!? heresy!

  91. Gabe Levine says:

    I'm way late to the party, but she totally says meow instead of now at around 5:30

  92. T-Shades says:

    Wish I could find some sushi-grade fish near me. I wouldn't even roll it, I would just eat that sucker

  93. Alicia Phoebe says:

    PROTIP

  94. Rupti says:

    I don't like sushi, but if it has bacon in it I'm willing to give it another chance! That actually looked yummy

  95. CaptonTypo says:

    I miss the Flog.

  96. Trent Leach says:

    that's it three things have now made you talk about poop your obsessed with poop

  97. Trent Leach says:

    you did the sushi so wrong for your first time but it looks so good

  98. Shantiva Deva Gamer says:

    I play video game coz they encourage regrowth of neurones crippled by MS. Seriously. My rl reflexes and like you say, strategic thinking are defo improving XD

  99. Lantern Of Gallifrey says:

    I know it had been awhile but I wish cooking with Robin would come back

  100. Colin Few says:
