You Can Roll It Too! – Homemade Sushi Recipes

I LOVE sushi. As you all know sushi is a traditional Japanese food that goes back few centuries. It is usually made of seafood and vegetables, which are considered as two of the healthiest foods on the planet. In Japan many people consider sushi as an art with food. I haven’t had the chance to try sushi made from a sushi “master”, but I’ve tried it in some regular sushi restaurants in my home-town, and I love it. So I thought, why not try to make a sushi at home, it can’t be science right? Well sushi is kind of science, science of flavors that is.
