Watch Nobu Teach Jimmy Fallon How to Make Sushi

Renowned Japanese chef Nobu Matsuhisa stopped by the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night to celebrate the 20th anniversary of his restaurant Nobu New York. Matsuhisa teaches host Jimmy Fallon and musician Questlove how to make proper sushi. First, however, they do sake shots because that's how all sushi making sessions should start. Fallon struggles intensely to craft a perfect piece of sushi — due, in part, to the large band-aid on his finger — but that doesn't stop him from challenging Matsuhisa to a sushi making contest. Matsuhisa jovially accepts, but quips, "You [do] know who I am?" Trash talking ensues. Go, watch to see who wins:
