Nobu Matsuhisa introduced serving sushi in sake guinomi cups in his sushi cookbook. It’s a quick, easy, and fun way to serve sushi for parties. While we’re not hosting friends in our home we sometimes use this colorful method for ourselves.
Simply put vinegared sushi rice in guinomi sake cups and top with sashimi, roe, kanikama imitation crab meat, and other sushi toppings.
I had the great pleasure of being a member of a team translating Nobu the Sushi Book from Japanese to English. There are many great recipes in the book. Other favorites include a tomato miso soup and a vegetarian pressed sushi made with shiso and myoga ginger bud.
Until it’s safer to dine out, consider having a sushi party at home.
