If mint and citrus and a warm spice like clove had a baby, that’s what shiso tastes like. Here's why you shiso in your life and how to use it.
Enjoying sushi at home has become a special occasion for many. Sushi takes time and care to prepare, and eating sushi in a more traditional style can bring even more enjoyment. For some of us, that means using chopsticks, sushi platters, and soy sauce dishes. Yet, others are happy to have a solid, utility platter that can be used versatilely. The sushi dinnerware we’ve selected is commonly made of porcelain or stoneware designed to add elegance and style to the table. Take a few moments to browse four of the best sushi plates to use at home or as a tasteful gift.
Protein-rich quinoa replaces rice in this homemade sushi that will keep you going all day long with energy to spare. Our miso dipping sauce is to die for – you’ll want to make extra to use as a dip or to drizzle over chicken, tofu or your favorite grain bowls.

This sushi salad unrolls all of the quintessential flavors of your favorite sushi platter. Crisp strips of nori softened with chewy brown rice, crunchy vegetables and plump pieces of crab. Silky avocado and a peppy wasabi vinaigrette top the deconstructed California roll on a bed of baby spinach.
