Booklist Review

Anyone who believes there's nothing new in the world of cooking hasn't seen Ken Kawasumi's Encyclopedia of Sushi Rolls.Because sushi appears fresh now even in American grocery stores, basic sushi preparation hardly surprises anyone. But Kawasumi takes classic Japanese rolls of vinegared rice, vegetables, and seafood into another plane by using special techniques to form all kinds of cunning little flowers, animals, and abstract designs. By staining the rice with different hues, he creates a Technicolor palette for the sushi-loving palate. Most astonishing are Kawasumi's sushi rolls that duplicate all twenty-six letters of the English alphabet. These sushi rolls rival the most elaborate cake decorations in their wondrous marriage of food and art. Mark Knoblauch.
