Edible sushi art | In honor of the Pride in Amsterdam
SUSHISAMBA’s master sushi chef John Um worked closely with each publication to create one of a kind edible art using sushi as his medium and tapping the restaurant’s signature flare, fresh, ingredients and artful presentation with style and fun. “At SUSHISAMBA we are proud to partner with these iconic brands” says John Um, SUSHISAMBA Corporate Chef.“I wanted to create dishes that reflected the concept of sexual ambiguity; these dishes are neither masculine nor feminine and can be an artful reflection of one’s beliefs.”
