Sushi is food in its purest state; bringing out its flavors requires help from these two indispensable condiments: wasabi and soy sauce.

The wasabi lends a burst of heat (a pungent flavor not too far from that of mustard) that’s meant to highlight the flavor of the raw fish, while the soy sauce acts as a flavor enhancer. (Think of salt and pepper on a porterhouse steak.)

For that reason, these master chefs, like the one depicted by rumblingclay, are well respected.
