If there’s one thing that summer and rising temperatures call for (apart from copious amounts of ice cream and cold drinks), it’s food that isn’t too heavy and above all isn’t hot. Salads are the obvious go-to solution, but they can occasionally look slightly unimpressive despite the endless variations. Sometimes the occasion calls for something a little more refined, a little more elegant. This is where sushi is perfect. Served cold and including a variety of fresh vegetables alongside smoked salmon and prawns, it is at the same time healthy, light and impressive to serve. Of course this isn’t your standard sushi, no, this is the fun new way to serve it: in the shape of a doughnut! How fun is that? It does take a little patience to make these, but is very straight forward and of course you can make more if you’re looking to serve these at a dinner party…
