The difference between California Rolls and Maki-zushi is the way it's rolled. The California Roll has the sushi rice on the outside with the nori on the inside. A Maki roll has the sushi rice on the inside with the nori on the outside. For directions on making the sushi rice see Recipe #383636. This is a combination of recipes found on Food Network. Special equipment need is 2 bamboo sushi rolling mat plus a bowl of water with ice. SUSHI ETIQUETTE: Sushi is meant to be finger food, quick and tasty. It is preferable to eat sushi with ones hands rather than with chopsticks, but both ways are acceptable in America. Eat the whole sushi roll at once. It is not appropriate to eat part of a piece of sushi and place the other piece back on a plate. Once you have picked something up you should eat all of it. Do not dip the California rolls into the Soy sauce as the rice portion of the sushi will become too moist and can cause sushi to fall apart. Maki rolls can be dipped into the Soy because the seaweed (Nori) is on the ouside and will hold it together. Simply dip into the soy sauce before eating.
