Who Invented Sushi?

We kicked off an exciting week here at FDL with an interesting question: who invented sushi? Writer Noah Charney took us on a journey to discover intriguing facts about everyone's favorite Japanese takeout item.

It's interesting to note that sushi is a product of food preservation, something chef David Chang is a big fan of. Learn all about sushi here and if you get hungry check out these amazing sushi recipes.
