This book is very fun because it’s all information about sushi. Different types of sushi, what fish they are made from, and where sushi originated from. It had many unfamiliar words and phrases. I did not notice that this book is actually a level 1 book so that makes sense. Although it is very informational I would recommend that level 0 students not read this as they would have to look up several words and phrases in order to understand.
I would recommend this book to any first semester Japanese students. Beans are everywhere in Japanese cuisine, and this book helps familiarize the reader with the various uses. There are general recipes for several ingredients like tofu, and the book even has cute pictures of koji fungi! The kanji used in the book would also be useful to know for anyone looking to buy ingredients at a store without English labels.
While I personally found this book a little boring I would recommend it to someone that was interested in cooking or Japanese dishes. The book’s visuals made it easy to follow along.
Would recommend to first years.
