What is Rozy rolls?
I call this roll the “Rozy rolls”. Because it looks like a “Rose” inside of sushi. We call it “Kazarimaki” in Japanese for this type of sushi roll.
“Kazarimaki ” is decoration / fancy sushi. A little bit tricky to make but looks beautiful!
We use to be made “Kazarimaki” for festivals or something special in Japan.
There will be a video of me showing you how to make a Rozy rolls bellow!!!
Japan had an interesting custom of eating sushi rolls in February.
It calls “Setsubun” February 3rd or 4th.
節分 Setsubun refers to the day before the beginning of each season.
The last day of winter/ The day before the beginning of spring.
Setsubun is the Japanese event held to pray for our happy and healthy life.
On that day, we throw away beans by saying “Devils out! Happiness in! This is called “Mamemaki“
And people eat beans as numbers as their age.
And we eat “Ehoumaki” which t is sushi rolls.
What is Ehou maki?
There are a few rules fo eating of Ehomaki
It is regarded as a good thing to eat Ehoumaki（恵方巻） during Setsubun. When we eat it, we must face silently toward the year’s lucky direction with your eyes closed and without speaking.
Each year the lucky direction will change.
In English it’s called – Fortune sushi roll
I would like to introduce the best sushi for your special day!!!
