Persimmon-leaf Sushi

The chefs of Otowasan Kannonji Temple teach us how to make a Nara Prefecture specialty, persimmon-leaf sushi. This fall recipe is packed with delicious ingredients, including sweet and savory simmered shiitake mushrooms, turnips in kan-koji and smoked pickled radish. As a final touch, the rolls are wrapped in beautiful orange and brown persimmon leaves to accentuate the autumn flavors.
