California Roll - DSFDF Challenge
5 X 7 inch oil painting on canvas panel.
S O L D
Created for the DSFDF challenge.
I’ve introduced many people to sushi for the first time. Most of them were very apprehensive about eating it, so I would always start them off with Unagi because it is cooked and sweet. After the first bite most would declare that it was delicious. Soon the plate would be empty then, there would be a pause while the chef prepared the next batch of sushi and my guests would inevitably ask what was in Unagi. When they found out they had just eaten eel and liked it most were game to try more varieties of sushi.
Pictured here is the classic California Roll. If you are a native to this state you’ve probably eaten this as far back as you can remember – I know I have. Sadly, I developed an allergy to avocados and can’t eat the California Roll anymore. Luckily my favorite, Hamachi Sashimi is still totally on the menu!
Do you have a favorite type of sushi or do you avoid it altogether?
