Are you ready to take sushi-making to another level? Today I’m partnering with Tuttle Publishing to give away 3 copies of the Sushi Art Cookbook: The Complete Guide to Kazari Sushi.
Sushi Art Cookbook: The Complete Guide to Kazari Sushi by Ken Kawasumi
As the world’s appetite for Japanese sushi continues to skyrocket, the Sushi Art Cookbook introduces readers to the art of creating sushi that looks as fantastic as it tastes! Author Ken Kawasumi—principal lecturer at the Japanese Sushi Institute—is the pioneering chef behind Kazari Maki Sushi, the art of presenting sushi so that each cross-section of a sushi roll reveals a delightful hidden design.
In this book, Kawasumi presents dozens of specialty rolls as well as traditional sashimi and battleship sushi—the Santa Claus and reindeer rolls are perfect for a Christmas party, there are bunny rolls for Easter, sashimi roses for Valentine’s Day, good fortune symbols for wedding receptions, flowers for bridal showers or Mother’s Day luncheons, and many rolls that are sure to be the hit of a child’s birthday party—including a train, clown, and a cute emoji-like smiley face.
Kawasumi’s easy-to-follow recipes use ingredients found in most grocery stores and suggest substitutes when available. Guided by his expert instructions and clear step-by-step photos, home cooks will be able to add an artistic touch to any occasion.
A sushi cookbook like no other, this guide to decorative Kazari Maki Sushi includes:
- Instructions on how to prepare sushi rice, ingredients, and garnishes
- Essential sushi rolling and pressing techniques
- 85 designs from simple to sophisticated
- Detailed color photographs, documenting step-by-step assembly
