International Sushi Day is celebrated on June 18 of every year. Sushi is a dish made with cooked, vinegared rice mixed with other ingredients. These “Ingredients” included raw fish or other seafood. But not always. Sushi has nothing to do with raw fish. It suggests the vinegar-seasoned rice used in making what we refer to as sushi. There are many types of this dish that are regularly wrongly called International Sushi Day. Sashimi is just a slice of raw fish. Nigiri is made by producing a handful of rice into a mound and a piece of seafood placed over the top. Maki rolls are made from protecting sushi rice and various fillings inside a seaweed wrapper. The California roll was born, and the USA was available for its sushi revolution.
History of International Sushi Day
International Sushi Day was first celebrated in 2009 and created for one simple reason, to encourage people around the world to eat more sushi. Sushi took a while to spread far from Japan, almost a century and a half, in fact. Lastly, in the early 1970s, a Japanese chef in Los Angeles decided to see if something happen if you put a bit of baked crab, a bit of avocado, and some mayo under a roll of sushi rice and encased it in seaweed.
It wasn’t until the 90s that British chefs started to try sushi in America and ponder whether it would work for soft Brits, fresh to the taste and texture of raw fish. Finally, at the end of the last century, with a bit of help from the worlds of style and showbiz, sushi went mainstream, and now there’s somewhere to grab and go all across London and in an accumulating number of towns and cities across the UK.
