After I began working from home, I realized that I had the special opportunity to be able to cook at home every day. While most people were working until later in the afternoon, I had time to go to the grocery store, get what I needed, and make a lovely dinner for my family to enjoy. In addition to helping my kids to enjoy better health, I was also able to hone my cooking skills, which was really fun. Now I can honestly say that I love cooking and preparing food, and I wanted to make a blog that centered around my new passion. Check out this website for great tips on cooking and enjoying foods each and every day.
Sushi is one of the most traditional types of Japanese cuisine. Diners throughout the world have grown to love sushi, and it can provide you with many health benefits in addition to filling you up.
While you might be able to get away with eating sushi any old way at an affordable restaurant, high-end sushi bars require proper etiquette. Learn to eat sushi like a pro with these simple etiquette tips.
1. Don't wear too much perfume or cologne.
A meal at a high-end sushi bar might be cause for celebration, but it's important that you limit the use of perfumes and cologne products. Sushi is an aromatic experience as well as a culinary delight. You will want to be able to inhale the fresh smell of the fish, rice, and other ingredients in your sushi roll to get the full dining experience.
Too much perfume or cologne could limit your ability to fully enjoy your sushi, and it can limit the dining experience of the guests seated around you.
2. Eat sushi in the correct order.
Many novice sushi eaters are surprised to learn that there is actually an order that should be followed when it comes to ordering sushi. Always start off with rolls that feature lighter tasting fish before moving on to the rolls that contain more fatty and oily tuna or eel.
Eating your sushi in this order allows you to enjoy the delicate taste of the lighter fish varieties before your palate becomes polluted with the fats and oils in tuna or eel. Be sure to cleanse your palate with a piece of pickled ginger between each roll so that you can eliminate any cross-contamination of flavors during your meal.
3. Finish all the sushi presented to you.
Sushi is a food item that must be made fresh. A chef can spend years learning to make sushi rolls, and the food is treated as an art form by many native Japanese citizens. If you fail to finish all the sushi presented to you in a high-end sushi bar, the chef may take offense.
Order a few pieces at a time to avoid the embarrassment of leaving uneaten sushi behind on your plate.
Sushi is one of the few foods that is associated with specific actions that show respect and appreciation. Proper sushi etiquette is essential if you want to blend in at a high-end Japanese sushi restaurant.
