    Trevor Corson takes us behind the scenes at America's first sushi-chef training academy, as eager novices strive to master the elusive art of cooking without cooking. He delves into the biology and natural history of the edible creatures of the sea, and tells the fascinating story of an Indo-Chinese meal reinvented in 19th-century Tokyo as a cheap fast food.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I fell in love with this book. I'm huge fan of sushi and anything Japanese. The book is a good balance of story telling and education. The author goes in depth about the biological make up of the fish, getting into scientific detail that was a little beyond me at times. The author balanced out the book with personal stories and experiences of different Sushi chefs which kept the book personal. I loved how a lot of the history and stories tied back to Los Angeles and LIttle Tokyo,as I'm an Angeleno. Overall great book, kept you interested from start to finish and gives you some great take aways on Sushi etiquette


    What about Brian Nishii’s performance did you like?

    Great at narrating and using his voice to simulate different accents or personalities. Was also great at pronouncing all the Japanese words. Felt very authentic to the spirit of the book.
