Sushi "Cook"books

  • c

I'm looking for a particular type of sushi book and I can't seem to find it. I want one that shows me diagrams of each type of fish with what part is best for sushi and how to clean/dissect out the edible bits of such critters as sea urchins. I seem to think that I've seen a book like this at one point--one that focused on what parts were the best, about aging and sushi knives--but these days the sushi cookbooks I see out there are all about making pretty flower designs with carrots and dragon rainbow 49er rolls.

Can anyone recommend a good book for me? Thanks in advance. -c

  1. I think you'll find "SUSHI taste and technique" by Barber and Takmura will answer all of your questions.

    1. IIRC, Sushi: Taste & Techniques by Kimiko Barber is a great book for everything you need to know.
