A Sushi History – Exploring the Origins of an International Culinary Favourite

It’s remarkable how head over heels the world has fallen in love with sushi. Much like the hamburger, the sushi is no longer a Japanese food, but a concept that is utilised throughout the world.

 

Narezushi

This is one of the earliest recorded incarnations of sushi and was invented within the settlements that thrived along the Mekong River. It was prepared by lacto-fermenting fish along with rice and salt.

 

Dictionary Appearance

Sushi appeared within the Chinese vocabulary sometime during the 2nd century AD and emerged during a time when the Han people were expanding southwards of the Mekong River and were discovering new culinary concepts.

 

Japanese Sushi

Namanare was a food popular in Japan and involved partially raw fish that has been wrapped with rice and eaten almost immediately. It is this concept that led to the development of the most popular, maki or roll, type of sushi that you can in anywhere in the world, from California to a Japanese restaurant in Maldives the likes of Anantara Dhigu Maldives Resort.

 

The Rise of the Nigiri

This design, which consists of a fish-slice draped over a mound of rice, was invented quite recently, during the 1820s in fact, by famous chef Hanaya Yohei.
