It’s time to celebrate sushi because today is International Sushi Day! International Sushi Day is marked on the 18th of June each year as an appreciation of the dish.
Sushi is traditionally considered to be a Japanese food, however, it actually originated in China way back between the 5th and 3rd centuries BC. It started out as a way of preserving food, where fermented rice was used to preserve fish products for up to a year. This preservation method reached Japan in the 8th century and it became the food we know and love today somewhere between the 17th and 19th centuries.
Seeing as sushi may not be to the liking of all your Food Technology students, we’re hoping you may like to try this fruit sushi recipe in class today! It’s recommended students work in pairs to bring this recipe to life. They should be able to make one roll each and share the ten pieces between themselves.
