How To Make Sushi Rolls
The Japanese are known for several things (like being awesome!) and one of them is their artistry and skill in creating beautiful, balanced and flavorful foods. From Bento Boxes to sushi rolls, Japanese chefs, home cooks and foodies put a lot of care and attention into their food by making sure every ingredient's flavor is well represented and balanced, and that the finished product looks like a work of art.
