Thread: Sushi book recommendation from an ex-Sushi Chef

    Sushi book recommendation from an ex-Sushi Chef

    There's clearly a lot of interest in Sushi here, because sushi chefs have, and make great use of, badass cutlery!

    I just feel sometimes like suggesting people read this book(I'm looking at you, Oivind), so I figured I'd share with everyone.

    It's called Zen of Fish by Trevor Corson.

    It's an easy read, very casual documentary style, but EXTREMELY informative, on the nature, variety, customs, history and some science of Sushi and Sashimi. It's also a pretty dang accurate look into the lives of working Sushi Chefs(which is very tradition based, but still lots of )!

    Check it out!

    I have a question, perhaps you guys know the answer. I have never made sushi, but every once in a while like to eat it, if I go to the grocery store what kind of fish should I look for, is there such a thing as sushi grade? I have searched online but haven't come up with a good enough answer for myself. There are a few internet houses I can order from but I was wondering about local fish. Does the book cover this stuff? If so I'll go get it.
