The different types of sushi.
Makizushi – often shortened to maki – is the all-encompassing term for sushi rolls. Maki is rolled into long cylinders using a bamboo mat, then sliced into discs, though plenty of shops will sell them whole.
There are four different types of maki: hosomaki, futomaki, uramaki and temaki. With the exception of uramaki, most of these sushi rolls are wrapped in nori seaweed, although soy wrappers, omelette and translucent slices of cucumber are sometimes used too.
