    Ok so basically the clue's in the title, I'm trying to make my soy-allergy-suffering boyfriend soy free sushi for his birthday. Only trouble is, we live in different counties so it'd have to travel.
    Everything I've read says that freezing/chilling sushi is a bad idea but I was wondering if there was any way I could take it on 2 trains and a tube without ruining it?

    Doesn't sound like the greatest idea but I'm no expert. Can you not make it at his, and teach him how as well, like a sushi masterclass?

    Put it in tupperware, keep it upright and it'll be fine - I've done it myself with no ill effects, even transporting some soy sauce in a water bottle!

    And yes - freezing sushi is a spectacularly bad idea (the grandparents did this once - and defrosted it in the microwave afterwards!)

    Depends. If it contains raw fish then I wouldn't try. Raw meat and fish spoil extremely quickly especially if it's warm, like in your bag. Food poisoning is NOT fun.

    Well, that very much depends on what would constitute 'survival': if you mean, "Will it spoil?" Then my answer would be, "Yes, quite possibly"; if you mean, "Can I repatriate it to the briny depths?" Then alas, I fear that particular ship may already have sailed.

    Quite impressed with the start of your blog. I've also put it off for ages but your macarons look awesome and you know what you're talking about.

    it'll be fine, ive taken sushi on a school trip to france for lunch once

    if you're really worried about it, freeze some juice boxes and use them to keep the sushi cool in transit, and you'll also have a cold drink when you get there

    I'd like to second that.

    That's so nice of you! I had an obsession with making macarons during the peak of my dissertation writeup, for obvious reasons. Having made them so many times, however, I must say those french confectioneries are really temperamental (totally live up to their notorious reputation) even small factors like the weather can change the outcome.

    Have you got a baking blog as well that I can pay a visit to?

    Learned that the hard way. I've got IBS so my bowels are hyper-sensitive to anything and everything.

    Well, how long is the "2 trains and a tube"? That could mean anything! And when are you going? A hot day would be bad. But if you're going to put it in a cool bag with some ice blocks for a short time and be careful not to shake it up it may be ok.

    No, I'm quite lazy.

    I will get one sorted eventually as I have pics lying around from various attempts at things!

    I haven't made macarons yet but for you to have mastered them shows real skill.

    It does take a lot of effort to start a blog but it's even more difficult to get people to read it! But then it's always nice to have someone giving kind comments like you. Macarons are so fun to make once you get the hang of it. I suppose the thrill is even greater for female bakers since they are so colourful and...pink.

    Sounds a bit risky, especially in the summer.
