Probably Japan’s best-known gastronomic export, sushi is broadly speaking the combined use of vinegar-flavoured rice and a selection of raw and cooked fish and vegetables.

Varieties include maki sushi – little rolls of rice and filling wrapped in seaweed (nori) – and nigiri sushi which are clumps of rice typically topped with a thin slice of fish.

Don’t confuse with sashimi, which is confined to fish and a few garnishes.
