(No reviews yet) Write a Review
With Smiling Sushi Roll, lunch can resemble great works of art, like Munch's The Scream and Rodin's The Thinker. In this unique, humorous little book, popular maki (sushi roll) artist and instructor Tama-chan, otherwise known as Takayo Kiyota, shows how basic ingredients like rice, seaweed, pickles, and cucumber can be used like paint and ink to create maki that is so fun to look at, you almost won't want to eat it. Mostly humorous art book, part sushi cookbook, Smiling Sushi Roll includes a few of the basics of using condiments, herbs and spices to colourize rice as well as preparing a sushi roll for some artistic strokes. Tama-chan's rolls feature original whimsical cartoons of Japanese culture and social commentary, as well as interpretations of famous works. Some of the cartoons even change with each slice of the roll to form a running narrative. Some of the sushi art projects in this book include: Famous paintings, like The Kiss by Gustav Klimt Objects, like a gun or a guitar People, like a Hula dancer or a Ninja Animals, like a dinosaur or a fish Symbols, like a Japanese character or a radiation warning sign. The result is a funny, joyous celebration of food preparation and presentation, and a whole new definition of culinary art.
