Sushi is a traditional Japanese food that has found its way into the hearts and stomachs of people all over the world. As a now famous and hugely popular food, whether it be a fine restaurant meal or a quick takeaway lunch, sushi is well and truly in the mainstream and now forms a regular part of many Westerners’ diets.
The components sound simple. Some seaweed, some rice, and some fish. It can’t be that hard, right? Wrong. What many people don’t realise is that it can take upwards of 10 years of training to be an expert sushi chef, which happens to be an extremely prestigious title.
Our vector illustration depicts an Itamae – better known as the head sushi chef – in all his glory. Wielding knives in both his hands and with platters of sushi in front of him, presumably prepared by him to perfection, the illustration has an unmistakable Japanese quality to it which makes it instantly attractive.
