The world’s great composers come to life in rice form, thanks to Japanese onigiri and one classical-loving cook.
Fancy some Schubert with your sushi? You’re closer than you think.
Making Japanese Onigiri, or rice balls, is an intricate art that provides keen cooks with the opportunity to get creative.
Instagram creator onigirigekijo is clearly a music lover who was keen to make a testament to some favourite classical composers, in sushi form.
With grain-by-grain precision, and intricately placed nori and miniature garnishes, these incredibly clever, edible creations take shape. From Chopin and Schubert, to Beethoven and Bach, we’re in mouth-watering awe.
And punctuated through the canon of western music, there is – of course – a cute cat or two. It is social media after all.
And if this all puts you in the mood for some starchy symphonies, do make sure that you subscribe to their channel.
