Healthy, delicious, modern--everyone loves sushi. But if you thought sushi was hard to make yourself--not so. With clean, fresh fl...avors and great good looks, sushi has never been so popular. Sushi is delicious as a quick snack or as part of a more substantial Japanese dinner and makes perfect finger food. The term 'sushi' is used for dishes based on 'sumeshi', meaning vinegared rice, the most vital part of sushi-making. This book explains how to cook the rice perfectly. Start with simple rolled sushi using classic ingredients such as cucumber, tuna or salmon. Once you've mastered the easy ones you can explore more adventurous variations. The recipes use easy-to-find ingredients, including everything from spinach, asparagus and carrots to shrimp, crab and smoked salmon. If you thought making sushi was strictly for the professionals, Sushi will amaze you. With these recipes you will never eat ready-made sushi again. There are also recipes for sashimi and the miso soups that traditionally end a sushi meal as well as others for making great accompaniments, like fabulous pickles and three ways with wasabi. You can have parties where you provide the ingredients and guests make up their own hand rolls from their favorite ingredients, or you can do it for them--it takes no time at all!

Sewing Machine Basics by Jane Bolsover This book takes the mystery out of the sewing machine, holding first-time stitchers by the ...hand and showing the easiest ways to get the most from their machine. In the climate of 'make do and mend', sales of sewing machines have soared, but many are only accompanied by a difficult to understand technical manual. Here, Jane Bolsover provides a comprehensive guide for beginners. Starting with an essential overview of the sewing machine, learn how to thread it and wind bobbins, why tension is important and which needles to choose. There's information on the basic sewing kit you will need, plus advice on which fabrics to choose and how to cut out. The chapters then build into a complete sewing course, and at the end of each chapter is a simple project to consolidate the skills you have just mastered. The projects include items for the home, including a cushion cover and a lampshade, stylish accessories, such as bags and scarves, plus great clothing basics, such as an A-line skirt and a simple shift dress. Also included at the back of the book is a full-size pull-out paper pattern section. 160 pages. Ryland Peters and Small CIC-30734. Read More
