I'm a sushi novice, so a friend bought this as a gift with a "kit". It was fun to read, and has some good recipes, but it didn't really have the best instruction. There are a ton of mistakes that the editor should have caught before this went to print. I will refer to it again for recipes, and the background information was very helpful. However, I ended up going online and found the information I was looking for, such as the basic instruction on how to roll the nori/rice on the mat! My first attempt was an absolute disaster. After visiting several sites with "how to" pictures and videos I am ready to try it again because I realized I was doing it ALL wrong.

I buy a lot of cook books and instructional books through Amazon. This one is one of my top rated. It really is what the title indicates.

I have done a lot of Asian cooking over the last few years. But most of it has focused on stir fry, soups, noodles, and fried things. I finally got around to wanting to learn about Sushi. And to be perfectly honest here, I was pretty much a Sushi virgin. I've eaten it a few times over the last 10 years, but never attempted to make it in any way. So after a little research on the net, I decided to get something a little more complete, that would start off with the basics and cover all the important stuff. Well... this book is indeed it. After reading the first few sections, visiting a local Asian grocery store, and purchasing a Sushiquik on Amazon... I tackled the job. Strangely enough, everything came out great. Not liking anything about the concept of eating raw fish, I opted for the pre-cooked fake crab and some pre-cooked shrimp. In any case, as stated before, everything was excellent.

Back on topic, it's a great book with a lot of good info in it. A great place to start.

This is my first book on making sushi. I have only just started looking through it but the pictures, descriptions, and topics are very useful already. I'm very happy with this purchase.
