For much of its history, Japanese cuisine was heavily influenced by Buddhist and Shinto teachings that forbid killing and the consumption of meat. The general public did not eat meat until after the Meiji Restoration - latter part of the 19th century. Yamazushi is recreating a very traditional, very elegant form of Japanese cuisine rarely seen in the US, much less in North Carolina, and it's very exciting.
Great post, Mr. Yeoman. Thank you.
