The Japanese are eating more meat than seafood, according to a new report from the government.
Figures show that in 2006, for the first time, the Japanese preferred meat over sushi. And in 2007 their appetite for meat increased even further.
The study said that changing lifestyles were responsible, with parents finding meat dishes quicker to prepare.
The government suggests supermarkets hold fish cookery demonstrations to help protect the seafood industry.
Despite these recent trends, people in Japan still eat more fish than those in any other major industrialised nation. …
I first watched this video a couple of years ago and it was absolutely off the mark, but informative. At first I thought all the customs were real, but after watching it again today (thanks to Digg), I’m pretty sure there are some inaccuracies depicted.
I remember when Whole Foods first came out with brown rice sushi. I applauded their efforts for providing consumers with a healthier alternative to white rice, but the hard texture and the nutty flavor of the brown rice didn’t pair well with the other ingredients.
I was hungry after the Coffee and Tea festival and dropped by a Whole Foods for some quick eats. I walked over to the sushi section and noticed a giant poster board advertisement. It was for their new Multi-Grain Sushi. Instead of …
Sushi is “in” these days. As amateur sushi chefs and home cooks are handling more and more sushi on a daily basis, it is drawing concern from the international sushi committee that there isn’t enough communication or awareness on how to properly handle and prepare raw fish.

My parents took me out to dinner on Saturday for my promotion. I of course requested that we go stuff our faces with sushi and sashimi. We went to our favorite Japanese restaurant called Mikado in South Jersey. The food is good, the ambience is nice, and the prices are fair.

First Course: Hamachi Hama – Grilled Yellow-Tail Neck (Should’ve ordered two of these!)
Second Course: …

There’s something about making sushi rolls that I find relaxing. It’s not something to be rushed, so you will have to expect that it takes patience and time in preparation.

The only raw item in this dish is the red pepper.

Genius idea! These pillows are great. I had a chance to check them out last year at an event and not only are they well made, but they look like the real thing! Check out their website, theoriginalsushipillow.com for a catalog of nigiri, sushi roll, and appetizer pillows. At least they didn’t make the pillows smell like sushi…that would be disgusting.
