Example text

Representing the training wheels in this admittedly flimsy analogy is the absence of raw fish, which, as stated earlier, is synonymous with sushi in the United States. ) This is perhaps why most self-appointed sushi mavens treat California roll as the bane of their avocation, a fishbone in their throats. Often made in the United States by Korean, Chinese, Filipino, Thai, and at times Mexican, hands, this dubious concoction befits more the all-you-can-eat pavilion of a Chinese buffet just off the interstate than a dignified sushi shop in Osaka, Japan, the sushi pundits say.

Sushi is a rare example—or a raw example, rather—of a foreign dish that has, within the relatively short span of my adult life, undergone a thorough reputation makeover. Initially regarded as dubious, it has now gone mainstream, and, remarkably, it did so while retaining most of its exotic aura. Indeed, considering the hostile reception sushi received during its early years in the United States, who could have predicted this remarkable reversal of fortune? In fact, I can think of no other dish so thoroughly identified with another nation’s gastronomy that shares this backstory of culinary rags to riches.

Unlike sukiyaki or tempura, “sushi is completely Japanese,” writes Sylvia Lovegren, author of Fashionable Foods: Seven Decades of Food Fad, a book chronicling US food crazes from the 1920s to the 1990s. Sukiyaki, the best-known Japanese dish in the United States before World War II, is either Dutch or Portuguese in origin, she asserts, and remained a “foreign” dish in Japan for over a century after having been introduced to the islands in the sixteenth century. ” According to Lovegren, the origin of sushi, by contrast, is strictly insular: “Some say sushi was invented, much like the Occidental sandwich, by Japanese gamblers too busy to tear themselves away from the gaming tables to eat.
