Sushi for All: In recent years, Sushi has become an internationally beloved food--valued for both the beauty of its presentation and its great nutrition. Sushi balances a variety of tastes, from bitter to sweet to spicy, in a beautiful presentation that is as appealing to the eye as it is to the palate. Better yet, sushi provides filling and highly satisfying meal that is low in fat and calories that highlights fresh, high-quality ingredients including vegetables, fish, and lean meats.

Get Creative: Many people believe sushi always includes raw fish, but this is not so. The word “sushi” actually refers to specially vinegared rice. Sushi may include raw fish or seafood, but it is by no means a requirement in this delicious dish. Many decidedly “American” ingredients can be used and enjoyed in sushi. Have you ever had smoked turkey or roast beef sushi, or a sweet potato sushi roll? Sushi is beautifully adaptable to individual tastes.

What’s Included in Each Sushi Chef Sushi Making Kit:
  • Bamboo Rolling Mat--used to wrap nori (toasted seaweed sheets) around rice and fillings.
  • Rice Paddle--allows you to properly toss warm rice with sushi vinegar.
  • Premium Nori (Toasted Seaweed) Sheets--offers a delicate, subtle flavor and designed not to crack and break when rolled.
  • Japanese Rice Vinegar--100 percent natural and specially brewed with a centuries-old process to yield a delicate, tangy flavor.
  • Japanese Sushi Vinegar--specially seasoned 100 percent natural rice vinegar lends the flavor and sheen for which sushi rice is famous.
  • Japanese Dark Soy Sauce--this naturally brewed, high-quality imported soy sauce has a bright flavor and aroma, and is perfect for dipping sushi and sashimi.
  • Japanese-style Short-Grain Rice--moist, clingy, and flavorful, this is most preferred rice for making sushi in New York City bars and restaurants.
  • Japanese Pickled Ginger--this cool, sharp condiment made from tender, young ginger roots, is eaten in slivers between different varieties of sushi to cleanse the palate.
  • Wasabi (Powdered Horseradish)--sourced in Japan from one of the oldest and most reputable producers of wasabi.
  • The Sushi Chef Cookbook--everything the amateur sushi chef needs to know to create and enjoy sushi at home, including a brief history, step-by-step instructions, and recipes.

The Baycliff Company Story:
President of Baycliff Company and creator of the Sushi Chef line of products, Helen Tandler, left her multi-million dollar budget and large staff at Citicorp in the early 1980s to pursue a more personally fulfilling path. At that same time, many Americans were gaining interest in Japanese cuisine and sushi--while many were still unfamiliar with the techniques for its preparation. An avid amateur chef with a particular interest in ethnic cuisine, Helen recognized the growing interest in this healthy, creative, and beautiful food and the idea for a Sushi Kit was born. In Helen's own words, “You’ve seen an article in the New York Times about a new kind of food; you’d like to cook it; you don’t have a recipe, you have only some of the ingredients—and the Times article says only ‘see ethnic food shops.’” That was the premise on which the Sushi Chef Sushi Making Kit was created.

This is a basic kit that may be of use to a beginner living in the sushi wilderness--away from large cities with Asian stores or even supermarkets that regularly carry Asian cooking ingredients. But if you have access to such locally, this kit is a waste of money. The most functional part of the kit is the "sushi mat", which is a collection of bamboo "straws" lined up and tied together to provide a rollable surface to make maki rolls. The rice spatula is a useful device, but the two of these together should cost about $2, although some supermarkets charge up to $5-7 for the privilege. The rest of the items--mainly food ingredients--are low quality and preservative laden. For half the price of the kit, one could pick up a tube of prepared wasabi (doesn't last as long as the powder but is usually more potent and easier to deal with) or a small can of powder (both about $3 each), a bottle of basic Kikkoman soy sauce (far higher quality even in the basic supermarket variety--will set you back between $2 and $4, depending on location and promotions). A pack of nori sheets will set you back another $5-6, unless you only shop at Whole Foods. The most expensive item might be the rice vinegar--pretty much any Japanese or pseudo-Japanese brand will do (Nakano [same as Mizkan], Mitsukan, and Marukan are the most common). With soy sauce and with vinegar, it's important to get the Japanese, not the Chinese varieties, as the flavors and concentrations will differ. The vinegar should always be unseasoned--then follow almost any internet recipe for seasoning sushi rice. Seasoned vinegars tend to be overflavored (salt, sugar) and are generally less desirable, although they will do in a pinch.Read more ›

This kit includes all the dry components to make sushi, and its a great starter kit. However, I was disappointed by the book that was included. I expected a book with colorful pictures and a variety of different types of sushis you can make, etc. The book was not easily organized and not colorful, and only included a few sushi recipees. I would recommend getting another book to supplement your sushi making desires.

This kit is a great gift idea and a really good way to start making yer very own bonafide sushi -- both nigiri (rice ball) and maki (roll). All you need is an expert fish buyer, a knife that is sharp as h**l, and some itty bitty little bowls for soy sauce. Everything else is IN THE BOX. Sushi Chef brand soy sacue is the best soy sauce you ever had, IMHO.

The little instruction booklet is great. Of course, this kit is no substitute for years of apprenticeship with a Tokyo master chef, but, if you have some appreciation for the aesthetic of sushi and a flare for D.I.Y. and access to sushi-grade fish, then this is the kit for you.

It's an ok set if you don't want to go out and buy these very basic ingredients and two simple tools (bamboo mat and wooden spatula) on your own for a lot less. This REALLY SHOULD INCLUDE A SMALL JAR OF TOASTED SESEME SEEDS for the money you are paying but doesn't!

But it does get you started and will allow you to make some basic sushi. Like other people have said the cookbook included is just terrible!! It talks about toasting the nori even though the package of nori already says "toasted nori"! The cookbook is just terrible. In trying to follow it to the letter for making the rice I burned the hell out of it! But you learn what you realy need to do quickly.

Bottom line the cookbook included is about the worst cookbook ever written, the "kit" could be gotten for half as much or less, and it should have included sesame seeds.. Still a decent gift and will get you started.

I have been a sushi fan for many years, but have always been shy about making it myself. After searching online at the dozens of different options, I decided to go with the Sushi Chef Sushi Making Kit. And I wasn't disappointed. Too many sushi kits out there offer just the rolling mat, or dishes and the rolling mat, but no spoon, or all the dishes but no edible components.

With this kit, you have the mat, the spoon, and all the edibles necessary sans the actual fillings (fish, veggies, etc.) And not only does the kit have edible components, they are top notch. The wasabi is scorchingly spicy, the rice vinegar is tangy, and the rice cooks and clumps together with ease. The soy sauce and wasabi are so good, in fact, that I would go out of my way to buy them if I saw them at a store somewhere.

But, the best part of this kit is the manual. It's straightforward, written in simple English, and has very nice photos. As I read each page of instructions, I feel like I'm being walked through step-by-step by a close friend. I made darned good sushi my very first try.

Criticisms? Hmmm... not many. The price is right. Maybe it'd be nice if they had a special "sushi knife" or something enclosed, but whatever.

Bottom line: if you're looking to make sushi at home for the first time, you won't be sorry with this purchase.
