What is best to drink to sushi?

What is best to drink for sushi depends on where in the world you are.

Denmark is a country where wonderful wines are enjoyed all year round. Wines that go well with heavier dishes with meat or fish and seafood dishes that is lighter.

On a warm summer evening, I would suggest that you drink cold white wine that goes well with seafood. There are several different white wines and, I would recommend that you look past a wine merchant, they will be able to make the perfect match.

Champagne is also a very delicious wine to drink for sushi. The fine bubbles go really well with sushi. In Denmark, bubbles are most often drunk at special events. White wine and/or champagne are good choices for sushi.

In Japan, sushi restaurants most often serve cold beer for sushi. At the exclusive restaurants such as Michelin restaurants, you as a guest are offered sake. Sake is not just sake. Of course, it is important to sake wine that goes well with sushi.

When it comes to sushi, the selection of drinks is huge.

Can fish from the supermarket be used for sushi?

No, fish from the supermarket should not be used for sushi.
Sushi is a dish where the fish is eaten raw. It is very important that fish is as fresh as possible to prevent you from getting sick.

The problem with fish from a supermarket is that they have to meet a number of criteria before they can be used for sushi.

You do not know where in the world the fish have been caught.
You also do not know if the fish meets the criteria required for it to be used for sushi.
You also do not know when the fish was caught.
You also do not know how long the fish has been on its way to a supermarket.
You also do not know how long fish has been stored at a supermarket before it is filleted.
Fish from a supermarket is packed in such a way that it is only suitable to be prepared for a warm meal.

How to transport take-away sushi on a hot summer day!

Sushi is a nice eating especially in the summer.
It is healthy and nutritious and it’s not very heavy in your stomach. In the summer, you should pay extra attention to how to transport sushi home. Sushi should not stay very long in a warm paper bag before the temperature raise and shelf life will be shorter.

The best way to transport take-away sushi during these hot summer days is to bring a freezer to the restaurant. In the restaurant you should make sure that the sushi box is placed on the freezer and you are ready to transport the food without compromising its durability.

What is the benefit of eating sushi rolls?

Sushi roll futomaki with prawns, web: http://chefzoeescher.com
One of the biggest advantages of sushi rolls is the unique taste experience they offer.
Each sushi roll is like a small work of art with a harmonious combination of taste and texture.
From the fresh fish to the carefully prepared rice and crisp vegetables, every bite gives you an exciting experience.

Sushi rolls are not only a delicious meal, but they can also be a healthy part of your diet. Fish used in sushi rolls such as salmon and tuna are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are beneficial for the body.

Another advantage of sushi rolls is the endless variety and possibility of customization. From classic rolls such as California Roll and Sushi roll with salmon to more experimental combinations, sushi rolls can be adapted to suit every taste.

Whether you are vegetarian, vegan or have specific dietary requirements, there is always a sushi roll that suits you.

Is it a must to buy a rice cooker for cooking sushi rice?

You do not a must to buy a rice cooker to cook sushi rice.

Rice cooker is a great tool for cooking all types of rice. However, it is not a “must” to go out and buy a rice cooker if sushi rice is only to be cooked for 2-4 people. You can cook tasty sushi rice by only using an ordinary pot. However, you need to keep a little more eye on a pot than a rice cooker.

The disadvantage of a rice cooker is that the rice can burn and the pot in the rice cooker can be difficult to clean.

Where a rice cooker is a must is in a sushi restaurant. Most sushi restaurants in Denmark cook approx. 10 kilos of rice a day. When cooking such large amounts of rice, it is important that the rice is cooked in a pot, where the heat is evenly distributed throughout the pot. A rice cooker really comes into its own.

Therefore, Japanese sushi seaweed is so healthy!

Most people have heard that eating seaweeds are healthy. And that’s it.
There are more and more companies that sells seaweed to consumers.

However, I am a little skeptical.
It does matter where the seaweed are picked. There are areas that are contaminated.

Therefore, I continue to eat seaweed Nori for sushi.
Seaweed for sushi is grown as oats grow on a Danish soil. That’s why I know that the quality is okay.

In addition, sushi seaweed is the vegetable in the world that contains most minerals and vitamins.

At Sushi course for beginners I talk a lot more about seaweed.
