It’s popular all over the world. It’s the quintessential Japanese food and could be considered the earliest “fast food” in Japan. It’s a dish that consists of raw fish, vinegar-rice, and a smear of wasabi. If you haven’t guessed it already, it’s SUSHI! But what is this thing that many people so readily gulp down at the drop of a hat and how did it come to be?

Surprise, surprise, the original form of sushi actually came from SE Asia, eventually making its way to the shores of Japan and accidentally becoming the sushi we know today. During ancient times, sushi was not a kind of food, but a way of preserving fish for fermentation, a verb instead of the noun we know today. This was called nare-zushi.

Fish was preserved in fermented rice and when it was ready for consumption, the rice was discarded and only the fermented fish was eaten. Consuming the fermented rice along with partially raw fish/partially fermented fish became popular during the Muromachi period, called sesei-zushi. This is where sushi began to be known not as a way of preserving food, but an actual dish. It wasn’t until the Edo period, at the beginning of the 19th century, that sushi became what it is today. Because of the popularity of food stalls in Tokyo or Edo, as it was called back then, sushi was made to be eaten easily and informally and this is the sushi we know today, called nigiri-zushi.

As a result of the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923, many nigiri-zushi chefs lost their jobs, packed up their things, and set out for somewhere else to settle and practice their trade, eventually spreading the popularity of nigiri-zushi from Edo to the rest of Japan.

Interestingly enough, we can still try nare-zushi today, near Lake Biwa in Shiga prefecture, about an hour from Osaka, Japan. Carp from the lake are caught, scaled and gutted, and then packed with salt and stored for a year before being repacked annually in rice for up to four years. That’s a long time people! So if you go to Japan, forget about your goal to try fugu, (poisonous blowfish) and make a resolution to try nare-zushi!

Sushi is famous and local food of Japan and its also famous in the whole world. Many restaurants offer this delicious dish but it is also a trick to make this delicious dish. Once I also try to make it but fail because it's hard to get the same taste.

School life is very charming and very glowing life for everyone. Most students take school life easily and they didn't know that this is the base for them. If the base is weak then they are not able to get good grades in higher studies and they are not in the line of competition.

Thanks for sharing your ideas here. The other point is that when a problem occurs with a personal computer motherboard, individuals should not take the risk of repairing this themselves for if it is not done properly it can lead to irreparable damage to an entire laptop. It will always be safe just to approach any dealer of the laptop for the repair of the motherboard. They have got technicians who definitely have an expertise in dealing with laptop motherboard complications and can have the right prognosis and carry out repairs.
