Over the last decade, as the owner of a sushi catering company, Jun Nakajima has taught hundreds of people to make sushi. From individuals with no sushi (or cooking) experience who wanted to learn something new to executive chefs who wanted to refine their sushi skills and everyone in between. In How to Make Sushi At Home, Jun—along with his wife Stephanie— has compiled his years of knowledge to offer readers a well-rounded guide to the art of sushi. 

Together, this book covers everything from the basic ingredients and supplies to how to properly cut vegetables, source fish, make sushi rice, properly plate sushi, and more. The Nakajimas offer recipes on everything from sashimi to sauces, miso soup, and others. They even have a special section on sake, beer, and cocktail pairings.

With step-by-step instructions and full-color photographs, this book makes a great gift for any DIYer looking to impress their next dinner party guests or those chefs-to-be looking to take things to a professional level.
Jun Nakajima has been the owner of The Sushi Man catering company for the past eleven years. Born to parents that have owned and operated a Japanese restaurant for over 30 years, Jun was able to practice and hone his culinary skills at an early age. After graduating from the University of Colorado Boulder, Jun took an opportunity to live in the motherland of sushi.  In those two years his appreciation of the culture, people, history and food deepened.  This experience became the seed that eventually bloomed to become The Sushi Man. Jun resides in Denver, Colorado with his wife Stephanie and son Hiro.

Stephanie Nakajima has been the backbone of The Sushi Man since its beginnings. A graduate of the University of Hawaii, Stephanie has used her background in marketing and finance to help build The Sushi Man.  Born and raised in Oahu, Hawaii, Stephanie resides in Denver, Colorado with her husband Jun and son Hiro.
