Who says food can't be art? This stunning nori is cut by lasers to create lovely lacy patterns that each carry a deeper meaning:
Each pattern is meant to symbolize good fortune, happiness, and longevity, etc. and the result is a delicate, unexpected reinvention of the classic Japanese food with a modern twist. The patterns are crisp, and when incorporated into the rolls, they create a sharp contrast between the dark seaweed and the white grains of rice within.
I would think these might just be too pretty to eat, but I'm a sushi fiend, so I know I'd still gobble these up.
