A Japanese proverb has it that women’s hands are too warm to make sushi. Hence, there are only male sushi chefs. This is of course complete nonsense. But it is true that the sushi chef needs an abundance of cold, clean water. Preparation of sushi also requires patience and a certain amount of practice in cutting up fish and shellfish, in cooking rice, and in designing and shaping the different types of sushi.
