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.

We have enjoyed learning to make Sushi recently and "Sushi: The Beginner's Guide" has been a great help so far. I would recommend it.

I bought this as a gift. Flipped through it before giving it. Great layout, nice pictures, easy to follow steps, lots of different recipes and techniques detailed throughout.

Great book for the price.

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.

The author takes the time to explain not only the ingredients for making Sushi but also the tools.
Lavishly illustrated with photos and good quality photos as well.
The author takes you from making the rice to the finished product.
A good book for a beginner like me.

This book told me almost nothing.... more than I already knew from going to a good sushi cafe. It has pretty pictures. It's a well made book, but the content leaves a lot to be desired. Didn't give good enough instruction for anyone that would be a beginner cook for sure. If you really want to learn the techniques of HOW to roll good sushi, or the art and etiquette of serving it, this is not your book. For pretty pictures, or the authors story, it's interesting.
