EVERY CLOUD HAS A SILVER LINING
That day I remember as it was today. It was typical Danish Monday in November. Rainy, dark, faded and I was on my way to work. Not a fancy situation, right?
At that time, I was working in a sushi restaurant. Some might think that it is not so bad position to be a ‘’sushi chef’’ preparing luxury looking food for wealthy people but the problem is, that I was dishwasher, which pretty much means – scum for everything.
In that rainy Monday I was hungry, waiting for my train, thinking about the food that I am going to buy before work. I was already late so I had to choose fast-food, but at that time I was quite in a ‘’good shape’’ (still am :D) and I didn’t want to eat a junk food. On the other hand I knew, that only apple or banana won’t full me enough. Then the dots in my head got connected: (on my way to work) Sushi – (I was already late) Fast – (Good shape) Healthy = FRUIT SUSHI.
At that moment, I forgot about hungriness and started google some information about this hybrid idea. I found a video with some Japanese granny rolling fruit to the rice but not any other mark about it. I said that to my friend Jiri and he actually liked it. Our first attempts didn’t look so fancy as you can see, but we didn’t loose the enthusiasm and kept going. Currently we are cruising around Copenhagen with our food bike, making frushi for different kinds of parties, events, graduations and attending start-up events because our long-term goal is to open a chain of frushi ‘’fast-food’’ restaurants. Nowadays I am not working at the sushi restaurant anymore but without this experience, I would have never even think about sushi in connection with fruit.
Every cloud has a silver lining.
