A pair of vinyle gloves for sushi making

Won’t you ever want to make Sushi immaculately? Not necessarily immaculately, but beautifully.
It is said that sushi chefs have to spend many years doing chores at the bottom of a Sushi restaurant. Many apprentices seem not to be given a chance to hold nigiri sushi for a while. I do not know whether this is true or not.
Now this time, I have found a simple and wise way to sort out the difficulty of making Sushi with sticky rice! It is a pair of vinyl gloves. I did not realized a pair of vinyl gloves are Japanese cooking utensils.
This makes the rice easier to handle without sticking to your fingers.

Sushi craftsmen are considered sacred occupations and usually do not use vinyl gloves in Japan. That is partly because Sushi making is sometimes regarded as a sort of “Show” performed in front of guests.

In Japan, where there is still a lot of discrimination against women, Some say women may not be able to get delicious sushi because of their high body temperature. Not really.

I am sure that if you wear vinyl gloves like this, you will be more hygienic and make Sushi better.
No doctor operates with bare hands in modern society. Let’s use Japanese cooking utensils called gloves in order to make Sushi .

「完璧にお寿司をつくりたくありませんか?完璧でなくても、美しく。」
寿司職人になるには何年も下積みが必要で、握り寿司もなかなか握らせてくれないという。しかし私は簡単に握り寿司を作る秘密を知ってしまった。どうするか?簡単!ビニール手袋を使うこと!これでご飯は指につかず、扱いが簡単になる。
日本の寿司職人は神聖な職業とされているので、ビニール手袋は使わない。また、カウンターを前に寿司を握るのはパーフォーマンスとも思われている。
女性が差別されることの多い日本では、女性は体温が高いのでうまい寿司が握れないという人もいる。そんなことないだろうに。偏見と古い因習!
これと同じでビニールの手袋をつけて握れば、より衛生的になり、より美しく寿司を作れると思う。外科医を見ればわかる。素手で手術する医者はいない。素手で寿司を握るのはカウンターの前の職人だけでいい。
