A YouTuber from Japan is showcasing his food crafting skills by turning Japanese rice balls into edible works of art.
The Japanese dish, locally called onigiri, is made from steamed rice, often formed into balls (or other shapes) and is usually wrapped with nori (dried seaweed).
Ask Japanese food lovers their favorite dish and sushi almost always gets in the list. While cultural prestige puts Japanese cuisine among the world’s more expensive meals (with the most expensive beef, apparently), it’s no secret that fresh ingredients and simple flavors can do the trick.
This is why Japanese people can do anything they want with rice — a humble staple in the dining table. That includes making delicious balls out of it.
