What kind of sushi is the healthiest?

Futomaki
It depends a bit on how you view sushi. I will talk about sushi which is prepared in Denmark.

If you disregard different kinds of topping and chili mayonnaise, then sushi rolls are the healthiest. Just by eating one sushi roll, the body is boosted with vitamins and minerals. There are several reasons for this.

Sushi is the vegetable in the world that contains the most vitamins and minerals.
Most sushi rolls are composed of a minimum of 2 kinds of vegetables, if not more and a little fish.

In Japan, nigiri and sushi rolls are equally healthy.
Japan topping is not used in the same way as in Denmark and some countries in Europe.
In Japan, nigiri is healthy, less rice is used and more fish is used. The Japanese get to eat large amounts of fish in a single meal.

At the Sushi course for beginners, you will learn how to make tasty rolls that are suitable for everyday life and parties.

Can all types of vegetables be used for sushi?

Sushi chef & sake sommelier Zoë Escher
Not all types of vegetables can be used for sushi.
A vegetable like eggplant is not suitable for sushi at all. There are several reasons why

If you cut an eggplant into slices, then it is not firm in consistency. And once it is cooked on a pan or in the oven, it is very soft and falls apart easily.

Eggplant is also a vegetable that in itself does not have much flavor. It requires the use of some other ingredients that can provide an extra flavor dimension.

Onions are also not a raw material that is optimal to use for sushi.
No matter what type of onion is used, onions have a rather strong taste. Raw onions can also bother the stomach and, not everyone wants to smell of onions the rest of the evening.

At Sushi course for beginners, you learn step by step, to prepare and slice ingredients and make tasty sushi according to the Danish Food Administration’s rules.

Sushi courses are still held in small classes


In the last 1½ years I have held many small open sushi courses with approx. 9 participants, and I will continue to do so. Even if the restrictions are lifted.

I do this because I found the perfect setting for my courses.

Sushi course is a course where several different ingredients are used at once, it requires more table space.
Sushi is also an eating that requires you to have room to move, ie. you can move your arms freely when cooking.

The advantage of the small teams is clearly that Zoë has more time for the individual participants and, the many good questions that arise during the course.

I can see that the attendants are enjoying that there is plenty of space. They relax and can focus on acquiring the skills needed to make tasty sushi at home in their own kitchen.

It is not only sushi courses that are run in small groups. This applies to all courses held by Sushi Chef Zoë Escher.

How to choose the best avocados!

Picking edible avocados is a bit like playing the lottery. Either they are too hard or they are brown.

There are many who tap on avocados to see if they are ripe. There is no reason for that. The only thing you get from it is that you get to buy avocados that have been pressed.

Most supermarkets sell avocados that are packed in pairs in foil. These are avocados that I recommend you buy. It’s harder for people to press the avocados when they are packed that way.

When you buy avocados, choose the avocados that are light brown in the peel. Feel free to buy them a few days before you need to use them. Let them lie and ripen on the kitchen table or window sill.

Then they should very much like to be perfect when they are to be used.
