This is way the weather affects cooking of the rice?

RiceThe weather does always affect food preparation. Cooking sushi rice is precision work and therefore I give more attention to the small details such as the how the weather affects the boiling of sushi rice.

You use significantly less water when cooking sushi rice compared to ordinary rice that is reason why the smallest details becomes visible. Depending on whether it snow, rains heavily or if it is a hot summer it will affect also the amount of water to be used.

You may find that you need to adjust the amount of water during cooking that is one of the reasons why it can be a challenge to cook sushi rice.

How the Japanese fish monger keeps fish in Tokyo

The Japanese have some strict rules for handling fish. On the cooking class I teach I follow the Japanese rules which are more strictly than the Danish rules. I do this for the health of the students.

It does matter how fish are stored.
All fish species have their own bacteria and to prevent the different bacteria from being transferred to each other it is best to keep fish separate.

In Japan, it is not enough that the different fish are kept separate. They are also wrapped in tightly closed films so that the fish do not dry out.
It is also important keep the fish cold all the time unless they are used in the preparation of sushi.

At Sushi course for beginners I talk more about handling fish for sushi.

What is the biggest challenge when making sushi?

Zoë EscherThe biggest challenge is to cook sushi rice to perfection.

Sushi rice are more delicate to cook than other types of rice. The weather can influence the cooking of sushi rice.

In Denmark we do not have extreme weather fluctuations which you can be experienced in the US or in Japan.
If you cook sushi rice on a regular basis all year you will notice how the weather affects the sushi rice.

The cooking time and the amount of water can slightly vary from the weather. You must just stay on your toes and constantly keep track of how the rice is cooked.
