How often do Japanese people eat sushi rolls?


Like so many others, the Japanese live a busy life. They work 10-15 hours a day. They often eat food on the way home from work or they buy take-away food on the road.

In Japan, sushi rolls are often ordered as take-away food on the way home from work. In Japan, you can buy sushi rolls in several different sizes.

Japanese sushi rolls taste different than those that can be bought in Europe. Local Japanese ingredients are used to make sushi rolls.

When making sushi rolls in Japan, no topping or mayonnaise is used, the Japanese customers prefer the taste of fresh ingredients.

In the Sushi course for beginners, you learn step by step how to make tasty sushi rolls, as they are made at sushi restaurants in Tokyo.

How strict are Japanese sushi chefs in their handling of food?

Japanese sushi chefs are stricter when it comes to handling raw materials to sushi.

There are several reasons for this.

Japanese sushi chefs have a completely different view of sushi and, the ingredients used for sushi. Sushi is a dish that you do not fry or cook as we know from dishes such as lasagna.

Sushi is a dish that is cooked as little as possible, which means that it places greater demands on the way in which food is prepared. This applies right from the purchase of fish and vegetables, storage, freezing, preparation of raw materials and preparing the food.

Japanese sushi chefs have a more in-depth knowledge of the different fish species for sushi because it takes longer to be trained for sushi.

At Sushi course for beginners you will learn how to handle raw materials and make sushi like Japanese sushi chefs in Japan.

Can you keep sushi for the next day?

Fisk
On Sunday I held the course Sushi for Beginners it was nice as always.
On the course I was asked if it is okay to keep sushi ro the next day. Unfortunately you are not allowed to keep sushi in the fridge until next day, since sushi is made with raw fish. Sushi has to be eaten the same day as it was made.

How big is the selection of fish for sushi in Europe?

Denmark is a small country with about 5 mio citizens compared to Japan where only 20 million citizens in Tokyo.

Since Denmark is a small country the demand for fish is small too.

In Japan it is very normal that there are approximately 20 different high quality  fish on the menu in a Japanese sushi restaurant. In Denmark most people know of tuna, whitefish, salmon and prawns for sushi.

Denmark do have national high quality fish which are not used for sushi. I do not know why. But the Danish people will miss out unique flavors because they can never try different types of fish during a meal.

At Sushi course for beginners I will speak more about fish for sushi.

The reason why the weather affects the sushi rice cooking?

NigiriMost people are not aware of that the weather does always affect cooking process.
Cooking sushi rice is detail oriented work. Just a small change in the weather will have a direct influence on the quality of the cooked sushi rice.

When you cook sushi rice you will notice these small changes sinces you use significantly less water for cooking sushi rice compared to ordinary rice. Depending on whether it snows/rains heavily or it is a hot summer day it will affect the amount of water to be used.

Japanese cooking class is also relevant to those who does not like cooking

We live in a time where more and more raw materials are polluted.  I am thinking of how agriculture sprays their fields and animal welfare.
Lakes, rivers and seas are also exposed to pollution and as a consumer you need to pay more attention to what you put in the shopping cart.

Although a raw materiale produced in Denmark is of very high quality if you buy organic raw materials. At the course “Sushi course for Beginners” I speak more about the quality raw materials such as fish.

California Sushi CademyHave you ever tasted a Japanese omelet also known as Tamago?

The perfect Tamago is silky, juicy, without air holes and quite spongy. The Tamago is also cooked to perfection it has not been given too little or too much heat.

It is very hard to make the perfect Tamago. When I went to California Sushi Academy we were also tested how good we have to make Tamago. During the sushi chef and sake sommelier education I managed to make a lot of Tamago.

If you get the chance you should to try to eat Tamago.
