The Art of Sushi
Follow Franckie and his friends as they explore everything sushi and sushi-related in the streets of Tokyo. This book amazed me as it covered so many different topics all related to one of my favorite foods. The group starts out by visiting Hachiro Mizutani, a three Michelin-star chef and one of the greatest sushi masters in Japan. They learn how sushi is made traditionally from start to finish. This graphic novel shows its readers how to choose the freshest fish, the difference between different sushi methods, and even the difference between Japanese knives used. I really enjoyed the humor of the characters in this book as they drank too much sake and tried making nigiri on their own. They seemed like they were having so much fun in their adventures in Tokyo. Franckie and his girlfriend Marilyne also go to Paris to discover how this Japanese cuisine migrated into France.
This book is perfect for people who are interested in learning about different types of sushi, the fine ceramic serving dishes in Japan, how wasabi is grown, the differences in sake, and anything else sushi-related. A wonderfully illustrated trip to Tokyo and Paris all in one delicious, sushi and sashimi-filled book.
