Great Book, Beautiful Pictures, Good Directions
on March 15, 2013
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.
