I’ve always loved sushi I was introduced into sushi by my mum when I was a child and I loved the way it looked the way it tastes it was very interesting to me as a child as you can imagine a child seeing food made in such a creative way they look like edible little toys to a child. While growing up I wold sometimes go into M&S or Tescos and buy the small packs of sushi as a snack, i’ve always wanted to try fresh sushi on a conveyer belt, i’ve seen them but never ate at them because of the cost and the different type of sushi scared me I wasn’t sure where I would start.
I was Introduced to Oishii Oishii by my dad, I was looking for work in Bournemouth so i could have a part-time job alongside university and I jumped when he said he had a friend that owned her own sushi bar. I went into the sushi bar and introduced myself and handed in my CV, my dad and and her had a friendly chat and we got some complementary sushi, we sat down on the wooden table and ate our sushi, I had to take a photo of the way it was brought out it looked so delicious.
I was told that all of the Oishii Oishii employees were taught how to make sushi I was ecstatic. This is how I came to choosing Japanese culture for my Melting Pot project.
