Do you ever sit down to feast on your delicious sushi home delivery from one of our London kitchens and think “Gosh, I wish I could make sushi like this”? Perhaps you have a sushi fanatic in your family and you’re looking for the perfect gift for them? Sushi making kits can be found all over the web. To help give you a head start, we’ve compiled 5 of our favourites for everyone, from complete beginners to aspiring itamae!
- Best for…getting started – Japanese Kitchen starter kit
Sushi rice, nori, a bamboo mat and some sushi vinegar are really all you need to get started on your home made sushi rolling adventure. This very comprehensive starter kit from Japanese Kitchen gives you enough to try your hand, without overwhelming you! The kit is topped off with soy, pickled ginger, wasabi, sesame seeds and chopsticks to add a few finishing touches.
- Best for…sushi cheats – Sushi Magic Sushi Maker
If you find rolling flawless maki and moulding perfect nigiri tricky, this kit could be the solution to your misshapen sushi woes! In the YouMeSushi kitchens, you won’t find any of this malarky going on (our sushi chefs are proud of their artful, traditional handrolling technique and every single mouthful in our London sushi deliveries has been made by hand!).
But perfect sushi isn’t easy! Our itamae have spent years honing their craft. If you don’t have the time, but love home-made sushi, the Sushi Magic Sushi Making Kit will help you roll and press beautiful sushi, without the wobbly edges and collapsing piles of rice!
3. Best for…the basics – Joyce Chen sushi kit
Sometimes, however, it’s more fun and more authentic to keep things simple. If you already have your ingredients ready, a simple bamboo mat, a bamboo paddle and some great instructions may be all you need to start creating real home made sushi for your friends and family. We rather like this elegant and very simple Joyce Chen set.
