Sushi is such a beautiful foodstuff – the vibrant pinks, yellows and greens, the pristine white rice, the shiny roe. Now, food lovers in Japan are upping the aesthetic stakes with elegant mosaic sushi.
Mosaic sushi is the food trend sweeping Japan that almost looks too good to eat. People have begun cutting their sushi into squares and arranging them in wildly colourful sushi mosaics that sit beautifully at the crossroads of art and food.
