Sushi Dolls


Here are another creations from our kitchen: Sushi dolls!

Inspired by lovely miniature Sushi dolls on Hana Sushi book, we tried to make our own Emperor and Empress Sushi dolls using sushi rice for the bodies, quail eggs for the heads, wrapped in elegant kimonos made of ham and omelet for the empress. We used mustard green for the Emperor but actually I'd recommend using lettuce since it's more edible, we just couldn't find any lettuce in the kitchen so we grabbed mustard green instead. Some pieces of carrot and mushroom for the accessories, a bit of red chili and using black sesame seed for the eyes.



I give the credits for my wife for her patience creating these Emperor and Empress Sushi Dolls.


Hana Sushi book, a wonderful Sushi book full of colorful and fun creations of Sushi by chefs Akiko Namiki and Eriko Teranishi.

I don't have the patience for something like that! I'd end up just eating it all before it was done!! ^_^

Golden Zephyr, in Japan some say 'eat with your eyes first before eat with your mouth' :) Thanks!

I think I have patience:) I like to do these for my families or friends,because I love them,but no patience for myself~~

Yes! If I was making them for someone else, I'm sure I could do it... just not for me, haha. And I really should learn to eat with my eyes...

especially sweet things...

Rashai said...

Gulf, at least you are willing to do something for others, I am sure when you're doing something you love you'll have the patience :)

Golden Zephyr, that Hana Sushi book is really full of 'sweet' things for your eyes :) and does encourage me to give it a try!

Lovely dolls! When I looked at the photo, it reminds me, I made sushi dolls with my mother when I was little. :)
