Sushi Or Not Sushi! A Fun Question For Limoges Collectors
If you are a fan of sushi and Limoges boxes, there are a variety of sushi-related Limoges shapes to highlight your collection with.
Sushi started in Southeast Asia when
people began mixing fish and rice in order to preserve the seafood. Japan began
doing the same around the 8
th century, and a series of creative
experiments with various fish created a cuisine that is now as trendy as it is
delicious. It gradually spread all over
the world, and though it might
take a while to get used to the taste of fish wrapped in vinegar-flavored rice
and seaweed for a first-timer, there is definitely some magic to it.
Japanese food in general is quite healthy, revolving around a diet including rice, seafood and vegetables. The Japanese have always made a living from the sea, and they also are heavy producers of rice – they grow it everywhere. They even carve hillsides to make flat fields for growing it. Japan utilizes their resources together to form a practical and popular melding of flavors for an undeniably unique creation. It makes an excellent choice for the health conscious.

Sushi is very convenient to eat, in its bite sized portions, and tightly wrapped preparation. To eat, the Japanese use two wooden sticks called chopsticks. Using chopsticks can be a tricky business if you don’t know what you are doing, but certainly a fun alternative to the Western fork. Just pop it into your mouth for a tasty explosion of distinct flavors combinations such as tangy rice, rich avocado, sweet mayonnaise, nutty sesame seeds, sweet-and-sour teriyaki sauce, and the fish of your liking (i.e. crab, tuna, yellowtail, eel, …) There are so many varieties, you are bound to find some quick favorites.
