Advice from the Chef : How to cook perfect sushi rice ?
- Take 500g of rice
- Put the rice in a salad bowl and cover with cold water. Rinse quickly, turning it with your hands. Empty the water slowly. Repeat 3 times.
- Then, still in the salad bowl but with no water, move and rub the rice energetically for a minute. The objective is to take out as much starch as possible. Rince thoroughly and repeat.
- Rinse 2 more times to obtain clear water and then put the rice in a strainer for 30 minutes,
- Afterwards put the rice in a saucepan and cover it with 60 cl of cold water and leave it to stand for at least 30 minutes
- Heat the saucepan over a moderate heat without covering it.
- As it begins to bubble stir it 3 or 4 times to stop little lumps of rice being formed.
- Cover and cook for 15 minutes over a low heat.
-Remove from the heat and stir gently, cover with a clean cloth then the lid and stand for 15 minutes.
- Pour the rice into a large, flat dish which gives a regular depth of around 7cm of rice,
- In 2 or 3 pourings, put 120 ml of rice vinegar for sushis over the rice,
- Mix without crushing the rice to let it cool slightly, cover with a cloth : the rice is ready to make your favourite sushis!
Made with love and know-how, rice vinegar has no other ambition than adding value to the flavour of food, as subtly as possible. With this philosophy in mind, the Tobaya Suten family business has elaborated products of exceptional quality since 1710 which today travel far and wide to add a sparkle to all culinary styles.
Impossible to divulge the vinegar production secrets held by Tobaya Suten, except to say that nature is very important! At the heart of the traditional craftsmen's know-how is the fermentation, slow and natural, in large earthenware jugs. Mixed with sweet agave syrup – which only flowers once a century! – it has a rich taste, is low in calories, delicious and very healthy. For the rest, hand movements are essential, handed down unfailingly from generation to generation for three hundred years
