About the Author
From the foreword of Sushi: The Beginner's Guide:
"And who am I? Not just someone who learned to make sushi at home and is now writing a book about it—anybody could do that! Sushi has been a part of my life since infancy. My father owned a sushi bar in Kobe, Japan, and while other children were playing with blocks, I filleted my first fish at the age of five! Owning a sushi bar was a demanding business, and when my brother and I were little, our parents were often busy. But every night, after closing time, the two of us sat down at the bar just like grownups and Otosan (Father) made us whatever kind of sushi we asked for. Now that I've grown up and work in the restaurant business, I can really appreciate that special attention. For us, it made the hours of waiting worthwhile, and created a love and respect for sushi I still feel to this day."

Having the right tools on hand makes it a lot easier and more enjoyable to make sushi, and
while some—like a strainer, bowl, measuring cup, and plastic cutting board—you may already
have, there are others that you might have to look for in Asian groceries, health-food stores, and an increasing number of supermarkets. Many are inexpensive, and some are optional. But for best results, the first thing you’ll need is a set of authentic Japanese knives.

I really like how this book it set up. Easy to use and really well explained for someone just beginning.
We look forward to putting it to use!
The pictures in the book are excellent, and the instructions are clear and concise. This is a GREAT Beginners manual for making sushi, but also is a good reference for those of us who have been occasional sushi aficionados.
The tools, equipment, methods and edible items are all well documented and described. It is clear that for a pure novice, this book will quickly get you on the road to making great sushi for yourself, your family, or your guests!
Easy recommendation as a starter or reference guide. A++. Bon Appetit!
