Since this is a guide for business students and sushi is omnipresent in business, we will take a look at some of the basic definitions. Once you dive into the world of sushi, you will never leave. Sushi is delicious but can get pricey. Increasingly though, you can find lower priced alternatives.
Sushi is indeed an acquired taste, but once you catch on, it will become a good friend at business settings – from cocktails to lunches – and dates or parties. No amount of text can do justice to sushi, but for the sake of this guide, sushi is the term that encompasses sashimi, sushi and maki.
Sashimi is raw slices of fish – no rice, no vegetables. These pieces may be served alone, or with ginger, wasabe and soya sauce.
Sushi is the most traditional and accessible form: slices of raw fish over vinegared rice.
Finally, makis rolls are stuffed with fish, vegetables, seaweed, rice as well as tempura.
The most worthwhile piece of advice is to try sushi with an open mind – and mouth.
