Preparing sushi is more than mere cooking it's an art, a creative act of beautifully presenting colors, textures, subtle tastes, and unmatched sensations. Every page here shares that refined philosophy, so it not only shows you how to make a feast for your friends, it is a feast for the eyes. Even the small line drawings accompanying the luscious photography which show in detail how to create each perfect piece of sushi seem infused with the elegant feel of Japanese culture. Immerse yourself in the lifestyle as you learn how to wrap, make, and arrange delicacies such as nigiri-sushi out of fish (yellowtail, salmon, tuna, surf clam, flounder, or prawn) and vinegared rice; thick futomaki, hosomaki (omelette), and fish and vegetable rolls; a battleship wrap stuffed with roe; inside-out rolls; a California hand roll with ripe avocado and crab; and soups. With advice on setting an eye-catching table to complete the wonderful atmosphere.
