The Story of Sushi is a wonderful story based on real life events that follows Kate Murray and her fellow students as she learns how to make sushi at America’s first sushi-chef training academy in Los Angeles, the California Sushi Academy.
The author, Trevor Corson, goes into fantastic detail as to the nature of various fish, the history of sushi itself, and how it was brought to the US, all in between the sitcom-like style of the general narrative and story.
Entertaining and informative, for anyone looking for a fun and interesting story on one of Japan’s cultural icons, this is the story to read. It also comes in audiobook format read by Brian Nishii which is equally highly recommended.
