Everything About Sushi

By Celeste Heiter; Photography by Marc Shultz

Everything about sushi. How to choose, order, eat. How to make it at home. The history, evolution and art of sushi. How to become a sushi chef. Nutritional value, health and safety concerns. The pronunciation guide, together with a 39-page sushi glossary, and a reverse dictionary, are especially helpful in identifying and ordering sushi. Beautifully photographed in leading sushi restaurants. 

Whether you’re a sushi virgin or a sushi veteran, by the time you finish reading The Sushi Book, you’ll be a sushi connoisseur!

Celeste Heiter
With her lifelong love of Japan, its people, and its culture, Celeste Heiter believes that she may have been Japanese in a previous incarnation. Inspired by a lifelong dream to visit the Great Buddha at Kamakura, she moved to Tokyo in 1988, where she spent two years teaching English conversation. Celeste now makes her home in California’s beautiful Napa Valley, with the most treasured souvenir of her life in Japan: her son Will. She is the author of Vignettes of Japan, Ganbatte Means Go For It, The Sushi Book, and Five Seven Five. She writes about her adventures in Asian food and film on her blog, Chopstick Cinema.
