The knack: How to eat sushi, by Caroline Bennett
Saturday 23 January 1999
There's a lot of etiquette involved. Sushi connoisseurs test the skills of the chef by ordering a "grilled egg" (like an omelette). If this is good, they go on to the sashimi (strips of raw fish). If this meets with their approval they will order nigiri sushi (fish with rice underneath) and then maki (pieces wrapped in seaweed). This is for sushi snobs, however, and there are plenty of others who dive straight in, which is fine."
