For our usual International Dinner, we had Japanese dinner! 🤩
Facts about Japanese food:
- Narezushi, Japan’s original sushi, traces its origins to China. When it was introduced to Japan in the 8th century, it consisted of fermented rice and salted fish. It was mixed with rice vinegar and sake, and laid under a large stone to prevent the growth of bacteria and microorganisms and to keep it fresh longer.
- One of the most mind-blowing Japanese food facts is meat being a relatively new thing in Japan. Japanese cuisine was heavily influenced by Buddhist traditions. Because the Buddhists forbid the killing of animals for meat, eating meat aside from seafood was almost unheard of.
Thank you very much to our kitchen staff! 🙌
