A gorgeous book with great information Mar 20, 2006
As a complete sushi-making newbie, I was hoping to find a book that would walk me through, step-by-step, the process of making sushi, preferably with lots of illustrations to help me along. This book is that, and then some: with gorgeous, colorful photography, this cookbook is practically a coffee-table book as well. It may not make you an instant expert (it's harder than it looks!), but it will definitely inspire you to get in your kitchen and give it a try! The book was a bit thinner than I expected (yes, I know, I should have read the specs) and the hand roll technique could have been explained a little better, but it is fairly complete, covering fish preparation, basic rice and variations, rolls, "getting creative", soups, and garnishes, as well as serving and presentation tips - everything you need to create a delicious sushi meal at home. Over all, an excellent buy.
Easy to Read... Easy to Follow... Great for sushi beginners Jun 7, 2004
Excellent book for beginners who want to know more about making Sushi. Nicely laid out with step-by-step instructions and lots of beautiful photos to complement the text. Easy to read and follow - I read it in a couple hours. May be too "simple" for those who've already made sushi.
Good basics sushi cookbook for your collection Apr 1, 2002
This was a good cookbook that covered the basics of making sushi. Things like equipment & utensils to use, ingredients explanations, how to fillet fish, cleaning squid, etc. There were a few creative ideas but for a creative sushi display but not for unique sushi rolls. Buying this book used and adding to your collection would be worth spending the money.
