It turns out that early sushi was not about rice. And it originated from the Mekong, not Japan.

This was a fun episode about sushi. Learned so many interesting things about one of my favourite dishes. For example, did you know that sushi didn't originate from Japan? 🍣

Fascinating to hear the evolution of sushi and to learn about why the California roll looks so different.
