My young son is a sushi lover and I wanted to learn more about sushi...hopefully I can begin to enjoy it as much as him.
I was first introduced to 27Press publications when I read 19 Lessons on Tea - what a great book. I still use it as a reference as I try new teas.
I highly recommend 12 Lessons on Sushi for anyone interested in learning about sushi.
I like the small parts of history lessons that where in the book.
I do feel they could have added more detail or expanded in some other areas. But I did learn a lot of new Japanese traditions and would recommend this book if you are what to try sushi or you already eat sushi and just want to learn more about what your eating.
The different varieties of sushi. Being Asian myself, I've been around sushi for a long time, but not really the hardcore stuff. But I'm glad to now have a more in-depth knowledge of the different varieties of sea animals that sushi is made from.
Is it safe? A question I've always had is whether sushi is safe to eat, especially often -- given that it's raw. The author explains how sushi chefs have various ways to treat raw fish which eliminates parasites and other kinds of microbes. I found that comforting. It figures, given that I've never gotten sick in all the years I've been eating sushi.
The glorious nuances of sitting at the sushi bar. This is my favorite part of the book because there is no more intimidating a spot to be in than a sushi bar, if you've never sat at one before, knowing the subtitles including the order of eating and what is consider proper etiquette and how to eat sushi just want you need to know. This book tells all.
Where Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) comes from. For years, I've assumed that MSG was formulated by a chemist in some Japanese conglomerate. Actually, it's a naturally occurring component of seaweed!
Whether I'm out with family, friends or business associates, going to a sushi bar is one thing I have yet to experience. With this book, I'm finally prepped.
