Sushi is delicious as a quick snack or as part of a more substantial Japanese dinner and makes perfect fingerfood. The term 'sushi' is used for dishes based on 'sumeshi', meaning vinegared rice, the most vital part of sushi-making. This book explains how to cook the rice perfectly. The recipes use easy-to-find ingredients, including everything from spinach, asparagus and carrots to prawns, crab and smoked salmon. If you thought making sushi was strictly for the professionals, Sushi will amaze you. There are also recipes for sashimi and the miso soups that traditionally end a sushi meal as well as others for making great accompaniments, like fabulous pickles and three ways with wasabi. You can have parties where you provide the ingredients and guests make up their own hand rolls from their favourite ingredients, or you can do it for them - it takes no time at all!
