Over the Counter #428

What book caught my eye this week as it passed over the library counter and under my scanner? I must admit, I'm not a sushi fan, but am in awe of the artistry!

Sushi Art Cookbook: The Complete Guide to Kazari Sushi by Ken Kawasumi.

From Tuttle Publishing:

"Entertain your friends and family with sushi that looks as fantastic as it tastes!

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 designs revealed by slicing the sushi logs into delicious morsels can be understated or refined, expressive or playful—whatever suits the 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

Anyone can create these simple-to-sophisticated sushi recipes and designs:
Chrysanthemum, Bunny, Clown, Smiley-Face, Panda, Cherry Blossom, Guitar, and much more!"

(Over the Counter is a regular feature at A Bookworm's World. I've sadly come the realization that I cannot physically read every book that catches my interest as it crosses over my counter at the library. But... I can mention them and maybe one of them will catch your eye as well. See if your local library has them on their shelves!)
