Sushi's origins, chiefs, and the fish which comprise the sushi dishes are reviewed here in THE ZEN OF FISH, an excellent survey by a journalist who shadows several American sushi novices and a Japanese master chef, revealing their drama, secrets and influences. From sushi's origins as an Indo-Chinese mainstay meal to its evolution to modern times, THE ZEN OF FISH offers many intriguing insights into how sushi came to the American table, and will reach not only general interest public libraries strong in culinary history, but college-level collections strong in either Asian history and culture or food preparation.
