Easy to make even if you are trying it for the first time! This is really popular in Paris! Vegesushi is a sushi that looks a bit like a cake but which is made using vegetables.
It is also safe to eat for children, so try introducing them to some Vegesushi! The rice has been cultivated in a completely non-pesticide and organic farm, and grown alongside ducks.
Aigamo Farmed Rice from the Aigamo family’s Huruno Farm is included in this starter kit, and this rice has been grown in a completely non-pesticide and organic farm where chemical fertilizers and agricultural chemicals are not used, and where ducks are allowed to graze in the rice fields.
If you compare this rice to rice from Tohoku or Hokkaido you will notice it is a hinohikari (variety of rice) which is slightly harder. The grains of this firm rice almost stand up by themselves! Rather than just covering their fields in fertilizer all in one go, this farm gets the ducks to do all the work by eating the weeds and slowly fertilizing the fields with their feces. This rice, when tried in tasting tests, is valued higher than comparable rice cultivated in the same region, and it has gained a reputation for being delicious.
