SUSHI

Sushi is really easy to make, but it is definitely not easy to master. Traditionally it takes a decade to become a Master Sushi Chef.

Sushi is the Japanese preparation and serving of cooked vinegared rice (鮨飯 sushi-meshi) combined with varied ingredients (ネタ neta), chiefly seafood, vegetables, meat (usually fish), and occasionally tropical fruits. Styles of sushi and its presentation vary widely, but the key ingredient in all cases is the rice, also referred to as shari (しゃり) or sumeshi (酢飯). Sushi can be prepared with either brown or white rice. It is often prepared with raw seafood, but some common varieties of sushi use cooked ingredients, and many other sorts are vegetarian. Sushi is often served with pickled ginger, wasabi, and soy sauce. Daikon radish is popular as a garnish.Sushi is often confused with sashimi, a related Japanese dish consisted of thinly sliced raw meat or fish and an optional serving of rice.

Sushi originates in a Southeast Asian dish, known today as nare-zushi (馴れ寿司, 熟寿司,) - salted fish, stored in fermented rice for possibly months at a time. The lacto-fermentation of the rice prevented the fish from spoiling; the rice would be discarded for consumption. This early type of sushi became an important source of protein for its Japanese consumers. The term sushi comes from an antiquated grammatical form no longer used in other contexts, and literally means "sour-tasting"; the overall dish has a sour and umami or savoury taste. Narezushi is still made in Japan to this day.

BURRITOS

Always remember the salsa

A burrito is a type of Mexican and Tex-Mex food, consisting of a large wheat flour tortilla with a filling, wrapped into a closed-ended cylinder, in contrast to a taco, where the tortilla is simply folded around the filling. The flour tortilla is sometimes lightly grilled or steamed to soften it, make it more pliable and allow it to adhere to itself when wrapped.In Mexico, meat and refried beans are sometimes the only fillings. In the United States, burrito fillings may include a combination of ingredients such as Mexican-style rice or plain rice, beans or refried beans, lettuce, salsa, meat, guacamole, cheese, sour cream and various vegetables. Burrito size varies.

Before the development of the modern burrito, the Mesoamerican peoples of Mexico used corn tortillas to wrap foods, with fillings of chili peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms, squash, and avocados. The Pueblo people of the Southwestern United States also made tortillas with beans and meat sauce fillings prepared much like the modern burrito.

VIETNAMESE SPRING ROLL

Make sure that the prawns are sweet

Gòi cuôn or the Vietnamese spring roll, is a Vietnamese dish traditionally consisting of pork, prawn, vegetables, bún (rice vermicelli), and other ingredients wrapped in Vietnamese bánh tráng (commonly known as rice paper). Some people believe that Vietnamese summer rolls originate from China since they are similar in form to Chinese spring rolls, Chinese biscuit rolls, and Chinese-American egg rolls. Others believe their origins are from Vietnam since the ingredients are different and they are served fresh while others are served fried, like the Vietnamese Cha giò. They are served at room temperature (or cooled) and are not deep fried or cooked on the outside. It is listed at number 30 on World's 50 most delicious foods compiled by CNN Go in 2011. These rolls are considered to be a very popular appetizer with customers in Vietnamese restaurants.

CURRY POCKETS?

I have absolutely no idea what we made is called, it was probably a modeled after curry puffs

Curry puff is a snack of Southeast Asian origin. It is a small pie consisting of curry with chicken and potatoes in a deep-fried or baked pastry shell. The curry is quite thick to prevent it from oozing out of the snack. A common snack in Southeast Asia, the curry puff is one of several "puff" type pastries with different fillings, though now it is by far the most common. Other common varieties include sardines and onions or sweet fillings such as yam.Though differing in the type of pastry used, the shape and structure of the curry puff may suggest that it has its origins in the Cornish pasty. Curry puffs are a very popular snack item in Indian bakeries. Several variations of it are available based on its content, including egg puff, potato puff, chicken puff, veggie puff and Paneer puff. Curry puffs are enjoyed throughout Brunei, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, and India. It also shares many similarities with the empanada, a popular pastry in Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking countries.
