If you have just finished your budget and realized you spend way too much money in sushi restaurants, I have the book for you. Sushi Master looks at sushi creation in the most detailed way possible. From what tools you need to clear and concise techniques to cut and prepare both the simplest and the most complex sushi, this book has everything you need (except practice) to make restaurant quality sushi at home.
It will not be an easy road, think Karate Kid level of practice. It helps if you already have excellent knife skills. Living in an area with a fresh Japanese or Korean market is best too. However, there are a few easy beginner recipes that most home cooks can master like California rolls, Sake Onigiri (salmon rice balls) and rice bowls (though technically not sushi but with sushi-type ingredients).
Sushi Master is best for advanced cooks. However, it does provide an intriguing look at how hard it is to make advanced sushi. This knowledge makes spending so much money in sushi restaurants more understandable. 5 stars!
Thanks to Chartwell Books and NetGalley for a digital review copy of the book.
