  1. 1. SUSHI: CALIFORNIA ROLLS. Nathaly Piña C.I: 17.840.510
  2. 2. <ul><li>Sushi. History. </li></ul><ul><li>Sushi was born somewhere around china and was very different from what it is now. There was no raw fish and not even seaweed. The prototype sushi was actually a pressed block of rice with some kind of flavorful ingredients inside, usually something like the Korean Kim chi. The pressed rice sushi contained different meats, fish and vegetables and was slightly dried in the sun so the outside had a crunchy texture and the inside was soft and tasty. At this point from about 300 b.c, sushi was utilitarian way to preserver food and make it portable. The trend caught on as rice cultivation spread over the sea and northward from southeast Asia, and different cultures made unique additions to the basic recipe; Such as the Japanese culture which perfection it in 3rd century during the dynasty making sushi disappear from Chinese gastronomy. The sushi that we eat today was actually developed in Japan not China that’s why sushi is considered to be Japanese cuisine.! </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>California rolls in one the most popular rolls in the world. Since typical sushi rolls are rolled in dried many people who aren’t used to eat dried seaweed tend to have hard time to bite sushi rolls. This is one reason that California rolls are made inside-out, so it’s easy to bite. </li></ul><ul><li>Equipment Needed: 1. Bamboo sushi-roll mat 2.Clean cutting board 3.Sushi knife or very sharp knife 4.A pack of roasted-seaweed (Nori) 5.Wood spoon or wood or plastic rice paddle for spreading rice Plastic wrap </li></ul>

  5. 5. <ul><li>Suggestion </li></ul><ul><li>1. Only use Japanese rice in sushi making. It is a medium-grained rice and gets sticky when it is cooked. Long-grained American rice will not work because it is drier and doesn't stick together. </li></ul><ul><li>  2. Sheets of thin seaweed which is pressed and dried.

Continue rolling the sushi and pulling back the rolling mat and plastic wrap, as necessary, until you have approximately 1 to 2 inches of the top of the nori showing. Rub a small amount of cold water on the edge of the nori and bring the nori around so that it completes the sushi roll. </li></ul><ul><li>3. Gently squeeze the rolling mat around the sushi roll until it is firm and forms an even roll (be carefully not to squeeze too hard, as you may crush the ingredients or squeezed them out). </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul>
