    Excellent and informative read

    I am a sushi fan and so was interested in seeing what this book had to offer. It combines the story of a young women going to sushi training classes in California with the real history of sushi. I found it very interesting.

    more from this reviewer

    A book to whet the appetites of novices as well as sushi-ophiles!

    Trevor Corson's spent an entire semester observing students at the California Sushi Academy, taking a copious amount of notes. He then researched everything relating to sushi from its origins in ancient China up through the present. Finally, he entwines the two in the easy to access yet mentally fulfilling (and appetite whetting!) book that is The Story of Sushi. <BR/><BR/>As CSA students Kate, Marcus, and Takumi struggle to please their sushi sensei Zoran, Corson explains how sushi became a worldwide phenomenon. We learn how the many types of fish, mollusks, and cehphalopods came to be used in sushi preparation and why they are used. For example: the ever popular tuna roll, or tekka-maki, that is ubiquitous in sushi dives across the United States didn't originate in Japan, because up until recently (in response to a sudden increase in popularity here in America) Tuna wasn't eaten in Japan.<BR/><BR/>I highly recommend this book to everyone who enjoys sushi or those who are interested in the history of food. <BR/><BR/>Kanpai!

    Another great book by the author

    Everything you ever wanted to know about sushi; written in a fun, fact filled book with plenty of humor. Even better than "A Secret Life of Lobsters"

    This Book Made Me Drool - It Was Fantastic

    This book was absolutely fantastic. Trevor writes about the story of a woman who attends the greatest Sushi academy in America, a story that portrays the difficulty of women in the sushi world. Describing the difficulty one must go through in order to be a great sushi chef, Trevor did so well at and makes you feel like you are in the same academy at the same time.

    Everyone who has ever tastes the deliciousness of sushi has to read this book, to better understand what your local sushi chef had to go through in order to make the cuisine you so love today known as sushi.
