Sushi Guidance for all levels Dec 14, 2007
For those of us who enjoy eating Sushi enough to want to make Sushi at home, this is a very good reference for all levels of budding Chefs. The photos are clear, there are alternative ingredients which are helpful, the instructions are also quite clear.
The author introduces beginners to the artistic side of Sushi. There are also recipes that the younger chefs may find fun and quite easy to understand.
stupid book Oct 13, 2007
If you want to learn how to make pictures in your sushi, buy this book. If you are actually interested in learning how to make sushi, keep looking.
Good, but not great Sep 19, 2005
I bought this book thinking it would have lots of, what I thought were "common," recipes to pick from. There's lots of recipes, but they're just.....different. The instructions are detailed with decent photos and there's plenty of interesting pieces to make in the artistic section.
Great book, pretty pics, good advice Jul 28, 2004
I checked this book out from my local library and has it changed my sushi fabrication! This book lends insight into basic creation as well as artistic possibilities of sushi. This book has detailed instructions and pics for all the common roll types. It features many recipes, most of which require ingredients inaccessible to me, but interesting nonetheless. The last many pages are devoted to 'artsy' sushi types such as letter, numeral, and animal sushi shapes. The pictures are really excellent: I like this book so much I'm sending it to my mom for her bday.
Fantastic sushi book Aug 10, 2002
I actually bought this for my mom for mother's day - she loves making sushi rolls but until now just did it based on what she'd had at restaurants. She's a great cook and certainly can improvise but this cookbook has opened her up to a whole new set of ideas and recipes to mess around with. It has great pictures, instructions are clear, and it's a lot of fun. Highly recommend this cookbook! One of the best we've come across.
