It was more than 7 years ago, when a good Japanese friend, Mr. Tanaka, who very kindly showed me his recipe for preparing Sushi. Unfortunately Tanaka passed away, today I want to share here as a posthumous tribute that recipe that on so many occasions has brought happiness to my family.

There are many times between families and friends we have shared creative sushi tables, accompanied by gatherings and smiles.

Each roll that I have prepared has always been to the taste, creativity and preferences of my diners, but always full of great taste and love when preparing it.
