Written by renowned Japanese food expert Kimiko Barber, this cookbook includes 120 delicious recipes. Forget complicated rolling or bizarrely named ingredients; Kimiko explains all the terms and shows how to make sushi rolls and other dishes through step-by-step photography. No recipe takes more than 30 minutes of preparation or requires special cooking techniques. The book is divided into six color-coded sections which reflect YO!s famous colored plates, taking the reader chapter by chapter from novice to samurai so that you can work your way up the rungs until you’re rolling with gusto.
`It is so well conceived that it will take you from novice to samurai in just a few mouth-watering steps.’ The Sunday Business Post
