Sushi is a healthy food, in which the quality of the raw ingredients, the taste, the chemical composition, the physical texture, and the aesthetic presentation are inseparable entities. Sushi is a food where the pleasure taken in its preparation and the artistry of the presentation are just as important to the whole experience as the meal itself. Sushi encompasses passion, science, and well-being. Sushi is Zen'. A lifetime's interest in, and fascination with, the central place of sushi in Japanese culinary culture animates this book in which Ole Mouritsen shares with the reader both his passion for it and his knowledge of its scientific underpinnings. In the last few decades, sushi has established itself as an important contributor to international cuisine and is slowly making its way into the home kitchen. Based on his own experience as an amateur chef, the author offers inspiring insights into how one can easily create an enjoyable, harmonious meal, how to choose and prepare raw ingredients, which techniques and tools to use, and how to arrange and present the various dishes"--EBL."@en ;
