Overview

At its essence, sushi showcases beautiful, pure seafood or vegetables resting on plump pearls of rice. A Visual Guide to Sushi Making at Home gives you the know-how and confidence of a seasoned sushi chef to create exceptional sashimi and sushi-style dishes in your own kitchen through more than 75 delicious, accessible recipes.

James Beard Award winning chefs Hiro Sone and Lissa Doumani share the fundamentals of sushi making via step-by-step photography and dozens of ingredient and equipment identifications. You will learn how to prep a variety of seafood and classic components such as dashi, wasabi, and cured mackerel, and how to hand-press rice balls. You'll know how to break down a whole halibut and how to cut a tuna fillet at just the right angle into perfect slices.

One you've mastered the basics, try your hand at creative rolls such as Pickled Plum, Cucumber, and Shiso. Read about what to drink with the nigiri you've formed. And when you long for sushi flavors but don't want to break out your rolling mat, explore the chapter devoted to sushi bowls, such as Wild Salmon and Salmon Roe or Soy-Marinated Tuna.

Sushi making will turn into a regular event in your kitchen with this excellent and down-to-earth guide.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
05/19/2014
In their second collaboration, Sone and Doumani (Terra: Cooking from the Heart of Napa Valley) deftly tackle the art of making sushi at home. The authors cover a lot of ground, from the history of sushi and sashimi and the proper manner in which to choose fish and shellfish, to a detailed outline of etiquette on how to eat sushi and what to drink with it. Each ingredient, utensil, and technique is accompanied by pictures assist home cooks. The authors break down the process with step-by-step instructions, whether the focus is on the classic nigiri with tuna and California roll or the more exciting gunkan-maki with broiled sake-marinated black cod (Gindara), and sushi rice-stuffed Monterey squid (Ika) with sea urchin (Uni). Unfortunately, the pictures of each dish aren’t on the same page as the text that explains how to prepare it, thus calling for a lot of flipping back and forth. Despite this inconvenience, the visuals running throughout the book are exciting, and the concise instructions help make this book ideal for anyone with an interest in making sushi. (May)
