Format: Hardcover
This book is like the University of Sushi, it is about much more than Sushi making. It has everything from ZEN to gastronomy, the best book I've read on any subject in years.

The Sushi Book You've Been Waiting For Dec 14 2009
By Jeremy Emmerson - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is the best sushi book I have ever seen, heady words I know, but just to quantify, it's not until page 153 that the topic of preparation begins. The preceding 152 pages focus the traditions, equipment and ingredients of the world's most simple, yet complex cuisine...

Amazing book on sushi April 23 2010
By Yukari Sakamoto - Published on
Format: Hardcover
A professor of biophysics at the University of Southern Denmark, Ole G. Mouritsen has penned the most extensive and authoritative book--dare I say encyclopedia?--on sushi to date. This weighty tome is packed with more information than most readers will ever need. Yet that's exactly where it shines. The author's curiosity and passion about fish is evident throughout. Perhaps most notable is that, unlike other sushi books written by non-Japanese, the information about seafood is factually correct. Sushi will educate readers on all aspects of fish--texture, taste and how they are served. Packed with photos and illustrations (by the author's son), this comprehensive guide also includes information on other dishes at the sushi counter, from the rice and vinegar used to make the shari to the green tea that ends the meal. With an extensive glossary and a rich bibliography, Sushi will find its way onto the bookshelves of chefs and foodies the world over. After consuming this work, readers themselves should be given a PhD in sushi.

I love this book. It is incredible. It goes into everything from basic preparation and tools, to lore and science. My favorite book by far as far as sushi is concerned.

Sushi Feb. 1 2010
By Jim - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
You need a science degree, preferably in chemistry, to understand the technical jargon but skipping the high tech content does not diminish the books excellence in understanding Sushi. Illustrations are beautiful. Having degrees in chemistry and having lived in Japan, I enjoyed the book at several levels.
extensive; well balance; historical May 17 2014

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
best modern book on the market for this subject. With a historical backdrop and a more techincal analysis of the fish itself.
