Like sushi? You’ve been eating it all wrong!

Well, ‘tis far from California rolls and sashimi we were raised, but sushi has really gotten a foothold in Irish food culture in recent years.

You’ll be shocked to hear though that you’ve been eating it wrong all this time! While we’ve been struggling to look some way confident with a pair of chopsticks, turns out over in Japan they’ve just been picking sushi up with – GASP – their hands!

In this video, sushi master Naomichi Yasuda explains how sushi rolls (the ones covered in seaweed) should just be eaten with the fingers. Sushi with only fish on top like nigiri should still be eaten with chopsticks though – so those intensive lessons were worth something at least!
