Sushi chef Timo Könnecke presents a step-by-step guide on how to prepare sushi at home. With just a few simple steps, fresh ingredients and the new Shin knife series from Kyocera, you can easily make the Japanese specialty dish in your own kitchen.

Kyoto/Neuss − Sushi is famous for many things. It is said, for example, that the traditional Japanese dish increases your life expectancy if you incorporate it into your regular diet, prevents lung cancer, and even increases your chances of impressing your date. What we can say for absolute certain is that sushi has been one of our favourite foods for a very long time. What’s more, children are increasingly developing a taste for nigiri and maki: A recent study found that 43 per cent of children today eat sushi on a regular basis[1]. The extremely healthy dish comes in many different forms and variations and is increasingly finding its way into the kitchens of British families. The possibilities are endless, and with the right tools from Kyocera, preparing exquisite sushi dishes is not as difficult as some people may think.
