The One Ingredient in Sushi You've Probably Never Considered

The One Ingredient in Sushi You've Probably Never Considered
From Fine Dining Lovers - October 5, 2017

Sushi chefs fall into a category of chef where knife skills take on a whole new meaning - the cut of a fish, the way the marble is sliced, the art of the act itself all play a huge significance in the culture of sushi and, more importantly, the overall quality of finished product you consume. It's something that people consider when looking at the work of a great sushi chef, they also look at the fish, the rice, the temperature and texture of what is being served. Many will comment on the style of the chef, sometimes the personality and most will, incorrectly in terms of sushi etiquette, boast about how fresh the fish taste. What you wo not hear people comment on is the movement of the chef, the way they stand, pivot, create and deliver the finished product - even though movement is actually considered to be a big part of the sushi craft.

With this in mind we decided to bring you some sushi chef videos where this movement is firmly on display, clips showing some of the worlds best as they explain their art, show off their amazing knife skills and display some of the key movements assosiated with the movement of great sushi chefs.

First up is Chef KoichiMinamishima from the Minamishima restaurant in Richmond, Australia. This chef has some sharp (pun entirely intended) skills but the video focuses more on explaining the importance behind movement when crafting sushi, a part of the art that is often overlooked.

What many people dont know about sushi is the importance of flow, how a sushi chef stand, move and delivers the sushi are integral parts of the ritual.
