International Sushi Day was celebrated in 2009 for the first time to encourage the world to eat and love more sushi. A fun fact about this dish is that ‘Southeast Asians developed the original type of sushi, which consisted of fish wrapped in souring, fermenting rice. The dish, then spread to southern China before reaching Japan.’  But, how did it originate? Wrapping it with salted and fermented rice was a method of storing and preserving h for later consumption. The rice was thrown away when it was ready to eat, and only the fish was consumed. Sushi moved from a way to preserve fish to a new form of cuisine. The way it is eaten today originated from the Japanese culture.

Today, create your own sushi with your favorite ingredients. Call a loved one to your favorite sushi point or to your place. Sushi, as a dish, is loved by all because of its taste and variety and also its health benefits.
