Sushi Fusion’s story began in Los Angeles in the 1970s. Sushi was still new and not very popular in the United States. Chefs combined it with another cuisine, particularly Peruvian, to develop something new.
Sushi chefs struggled, but this pushed them to get creative and experiment with native ingredients, the result: the California roll, the first fusion-style sushi.
Later it moved to South Florida, where it has taken on a particularly Latin flavor.
Our project explores the mix of cultures between the Japanese tradition and the rich cultural diversity in South Florida and how these interact to create sushi with a twist.
