Holland America Line Prepares The Largest Sushi Roll At Sea
At the start of making the roll.
In celebration of International Sushi Day (18JUN), Holland America Line, together with Culinary Council Member Andy Matsuda who was sailing aboard Koningsdam in Norway, created the “World Mega Roll,” the largest sushi roll at sea.
Measuring 49’/15m long (pre-roll) and 3.3ft/100cm wide, Matsuda used 150 sheets of Nori seaweed and 70 pounds of rice to create the roll. Once rolled, it was cut in half so guests on board could view the various ingredients, including rice, salmon, tuna, shrimp, crab, tamago (Japanese omelet), tobiko (flying fish roe), cucumber, red onion and radish.
“Having Andy on board Koningsdam in June made it the perfect time to show off his sushi skills and create the Largest Sushi Roll at Sea in honour of International Sushi Day,” said Orlando Ashford, president of Holland America Line. “As the only cruise line with seven Culinary Council members advising our culinary offering, it’s exciting to be able to tap specific expertise like the exceptional skills of Andy to wow our guests with such a fun, unique and memorable experience.”
