Gary’s Webspace » Blog Archive » Tojo - Inventor of the California and BC Roll?

Wikipedia states that the California roll is invented in LA by Ichiro Mashita in the early 1970s.

...
I believe it's pretty commonly accpted that Ichiro Mashita invented the roll at a restaurant called Tokyo Kaikan. Wikipedia has the decade wrong. I have researched it is being about 1967 or '68. There is another California chef, Horikawa, who has laid claim to the roll, but his restaurant didn't open until the 1970's - so if he invented it he was just serving it at home! I've never heard of a BC chef as the inventor. I will tell you one interesting aspect of my research in this. apparently the roll was created at the urging of a customer named Sheridan. I have tried to track this man down, but so far I've been unsuccessful. this tip came from Mashita's assistant at Tokyo Kaikan, Imaizumi. So strictly speaking you could say that some man named Sheridan invented the roll. Another interesting point is that Mashita never wanted the credit for his invention. He was a traditional sushi maker, so he found the association with the modern American creation embarrassing.

Ichiro Mashita did not molest children or die in prison of aids. Someone is trying to slander him. He is alive and well and serving sushi in los Angeles to this day.

Ichiro Mashita may have reinvented the California Roll as a maki sushi, but it was not his invention.

Many think that Ichiro Mashita, a sushi chef at the Tokyo Kaikan in Los Angeles, invented the dish in the early 70s. Because so many people didn’t necessarily want to see what they were eating on the inside of the roll, Mashita decided to turn it inside out.
