Sushi is a Japanese food consisting of cold cooked rice, dressed with vinegar, which is then combined with other ingredients including raw fish or seafood.
When we use the term sushi, most people automatically think of Nigiri (sushi made with a small clump of rice).
There are, however, various different types of sushi such as Chirashi, Oshi-zushi, Maki-zushi and more.
In the past, sushi was considered to be an expensive, festive food. These days, people eat sushi on a regular basis.
