Sushi has grown from being a subsection of Japanese cuisine to being perhaps Japan’s most famous global export. It is now a huge business and is sold in outlets ranging from fine dining establishments to convenience stores. Quite a story for a dish that was originally created to preserve fish before refrigeration.
In this episode, our host, Simon Majumdar, follows the path of sushi’s rise from the origins of preservation in the Mekong to its arrival in the West. Oh, and he even looks at the thorny issue of who invented the California Roll.
