Amazon Says: The Sushi Lover's Cookbook is sure to fire the imagination of the beginner sushi cook and to stoke the passions of the experienced cook who had thought they'd tried everything. People who are fanatic about their sushi will find much to love in this exquisitely illustrated cookbook, which features traditional favorite sushi recipes—such as Inside-Out Rolls, Nigiri Sushi, Hand Rolls, Inari Sushi (Tofu Pouches)—as well as exciting new recipes with international flair. In an accessible and friendly tone, Japanese cooking expert Yumi Umemura leads you through 85 easy recipes combining sushi rice—the key to authentic sushi—with ingredients that range from time-honored favorites to more recently popular ingredients such as avocados and smoked salmon. Many recipes reflect sushi's worldwide popularity—incorporating the diverse tastes of Thai fish sauce or French ratatouille and atypical (and yes, cooked!) sushi ingredients such as roast beef, chicken or sun-dried tomatoes. Whether you're making the classic thick rolls or thin rolls, or experimenting with one of the author's fun and easy-to-make sushi inventions such as ball or pizza sushi, you will enjoy using and being inspired by this beautiful cookbook. less...

Amazon Says: Now, anyone can go from sushi novice to sushi samurai--slicing, filleting, and making rolls like a master! Never before have the techniques of this most popular Asian cuisine been as attractively presented, as easy to follow, and as temptingly photographed as this beginner's guide. With the help of an unbelievable number of close-up photos, expert Aya Imatani virtually takes would-be chefs by the hand, leading them through every delectable step of the process. She discusses all the tools, foods, and paraphernalia; lays out the methods for making vinegars and sauces; and demonstrates how to make sashimi creations so special they aren't even found in many sushi bars. The menu of sushi recipes is expansive, encompassing hosomaki, saimaki, and all-vegetarian varieties. You will even learn all the right Japanese names for each dish. And everything seems wonderfully doable. The big finish: Aya's specials, the kind of dishes you'll never find in sushi bars--such as Sushi Cake (Chicken &Teriyaki) and Temarizushi (made of tuna, salmon, and avocado)--but that a Japanese mother or grandmother would make for her own family. less...

Amazon Says: From Hiroko Shimbo, the well-known and widely admired authority on Japanese food, here is the most comprehensive, engaging, and instructive book that has ever been written on the fascinating world of sushi—the delights of eating it, preparing it, and savoring it in its many forms. Shimbo introduces you first to the history of sushi (it started out as a way of preserving fish) and shows how it has evolved into the phenomenon it is today, relished by food lovers the world over. She then takes you into a typical sushi bar—guiding you in all aspects of the experience, from the ordering of sushi and the etiquette of eating it to the appropriate exchange with your sushi chef—all in Japanese, of course (you can tear off this sheet and the one on the back flap to tuck into your pocket so you’ll have these valuable tips with you the next time you visit a sushi bar). For the home cook there are step-by-step illustrated instructions on how to make sushi rice properly and how to shape the rice around a variety of delicious fillings (primarily of cooked and preserved fish and seafood, omelets, vegetables, and seasonings). There are sauces and accompaniments to complement the sushi meal. A new world will open up as you discover sushi pouches, tossed and arranged sushi salads, sushi for the lunch box, and sushi dolls to make with your children. Now, along with the professional chef, you are ready to tackle raw fish and seafood, and Shimbo gives you all the tools—what fish to buy, how to be sure that is safe to eat raw, and how to slice it expertly. It’s all here in this all-encompassing, gloriously illustrated book, along with stories about fishermen, knife makers, tea growers, wasabi farmers, and sake brewers, to inspire American cooks to create, and enjoy, our own perfect sushi. less...
