Gardening like pressed sushi of hors d'oeuvre

Kakinoha-sushi is a kind of pressed sushi and a local special cuisine in Nara prefecture. We put sliced and pickled mackerel (or other fish) over a piece of sushi rice, and then rolled it in a persimmon leaf.

In Nara, we make Kakinoha-sushi as a special meal for summer festivals.

“ Melati Jasmine Cuisine, SangoNara” is one of a cooking class in  Washocook association.

Through this lesson, I can show how to cook an “Arranged Kakinoha-sushi” to the foreign people who are interested in exchanging with local Japanese people.
