Make Iron Chef quality sushiJapan

Japan have given us many gifts, especially in the world of food, and there's probably no gift bigger than the gloriously delicious gift of sushi. And legendary Japanese chef Morimoto, of Iron Chef TV show fame, knows a thing or two about making sushi.

While many people would assume sushi to be the national dish of Japan, that title goes to Japanese Curry. In fact, Japan didn't actually even invent sushi, with the dish originating in Southeast Asia.

Despite this, over the centuries they managed to absolutely perfect it...or so they thought, until Morimoto came along, who perfected it even more.

He recently caught up with VICE's food show Munchies to teach Westerners how to make Japan's epic dish.

Find out how - if you can't get to Tokyo right now, this is the next best thing.
