About

Sushi has become very popular over the last decade in the USA, and sure you can find books about sushi at your local Barnes & Noble bookstore.  We found out that most sushi making books are difficult for the readers to follow, and many details are missing. That’s why we are creating an e-book (with online videos) to show you how to make sushi the right way. Also, all popular sushi (maki rolls, hand rolls, nigiri sushi, and sashimi) will be listed in the book with both pictures and ingredients.

Chef Wei will show you every step in the sushi making process.  He is now working as a sushi chef in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area, and he has 10 years of experience in the sushi industry.

Kickstarters will get free updates for life, for both the e-book and the videos. The e-book is going to be in PDF format, and we will send it to you over email. The videos will be delivered online as well. Below are more details about the e-book.

Risks and challenges

Since we are doing this part-time, and we are trying to ensure the quality of the e-book and the videos, there is a small chance that the e-book might not delivered on time. Chef Wei, who will be in the videos, is not a native English speaker, we might also need extra time to put captions into the videos as well.
