Sushi at Home – Book Launch Night

14th July 2013

Sushi at Home, my first book; was launched at the end of June in Fritz Hansen’s beautiful furniture showroom in Margaret Street. It was a great night, with friends, family and supporters who have helped me throughout this project. Mr. Tokunaga provided freshly made nigiri and sushi rolls, he also attracted a crowd; as watching him work is simply amazing. The sparkling Takara ‘Mio’ Sake provided a really unique flavour for the evening and was accompanied by the melodic, Japanese sounds of Hibiki Ichikawa playing the Tsugaru Shamisen.

I provided a short demonstration of one of the recipes from the book, the real fun was signing books and hearing people’s first thoughts about the book.

A massive thank-you to all those who joined me on the night, to my students, my sponsors and my supporters. Thanks to Amanda for the amazing photos, the lovely  team at Fritz Hansen and Charlotte who was simply fantastic!. Also, specifically and in no particular order!:
