Obwohl ich weiss, dass  durch den weltweiten Sushi-Boom der Thunfish zum begehrten Produkt geworden ist und  heute sogar vom  Aussterben bedroht ist, habe ich hier eine kleine Uebung mit Hot Potatoes  zu diesem Thema vorbereitet. Warum diese Speise früher in erster Linie  zubereitet wurde, finde es nämlich ziemlich interessant und ausserdem ist Sushi natürlich sehr gesund, wenn richtig zubereitet!

Despite the fact that it seems to take about ten years to become a good Sushi cook and that the now very precious tuna fish, which was considered almost worthless in the past and therefore fed to the animals, risks now to get extinct if all over the world people remain mad about Sushi, I ask you to watch the following Sushi recipe video which shows you how healthy it is. By the way, it has also been said that women are not capapable of preparing a good Sushi because the temperature of their hands is to high. Nowadays, however, there are people who confirm that women’s hand temperature is lower than that of men!
