Make the Sushi Rice

A critical step is making great sushi rice: seasoning it as Morimoto does, with a mixture of rice vinegars, sugar and salt, then carefully separating and fluffing the grains with a slicing motion. "Use your fingertips to delicately spread the rice," says Morimoto. "You want a little space between the rice grains so that they remain fluffy."
