    Recommendations for books on sushi?

    I'm looking to improve my knowledge of sushi, and was looking for recomendations for high quality books, which focus on advanced techniques and terminology. I know my way around fish pretty well, but I'd like to take my skills/knowledge to the next level. I'd even be interested in books written in Japanese if they have a decent amount of "how to pictures"

    On a side note, does anyone know of any Instagram accounts of high end sushi chefs/ restaurants or prolific sushi eaters?

    Thanks in advance

    Edomae Sushi: Art, Tradition, Simplicity by Kikuo Shimizu is one i admire alot. I would have to dig out a few to get names as my memory is a tad faded... working with other sushi chefs is where the real knowledge is at imo

    Kinokuniya in Sydney has a good selection of Japanese cookery books. Many have a lot of pictures. Give it a visit next time you are coming this way.

    Here are some that I have at home:

    I'm already following her, i think it's Instagram that had reignited my interest in sushi, when I was in Sydney I would eat it at least twice per week, I always sit at the counter (usually by myself) and ended up having some great meals & conversations. For the last 3 years I've been in sushi exile, I'm a 6 hour drive from a half decent sushi place. Hence my desire to do more myself.

    Thanks Jon, that's the one I ordered

    I'll check that out next time I'm up Chanop
