Japanese food culture, Food event in Tokyo, Japanese unique ingredients and classes
Sushi rolled in seaweed, we call it Maki-zushi. This is well known as California rolls. Original Japanese rolled sushi doesn't contain raw ingredients. The fillings are mostly egg rolls, cooked shiitake mushrooms, cooked greens, such as spinach and cooked seafood. We make this kind of sushi for special event gathering and for picnic since it doesn't need any culturally when we eat.
Oshi-zushi is pressed sushi in a certain wooden box. Serve layered seasoned rice and ingredients then press and hold to make firm shaped sushi.
This is Inari-zushi. Vinegar seasoned sushi rice stuffed in fried bean curd. We eat this sushi in event and picnic the same occasions as rolled sushi. It doesn't contain any seafood, so vegetarian enjoy this sushi.
My family like sushi, so I often make sushi for dinner, maybe every 2 weeks. Sometime I make chirashi-zushi or buy in super market. My sons never get tired to eat sushi.
