Fish, Sushi and Sashimi R to L (Japanese Style). Fish, Sushi and Sashimi Yamaoka and his father, Kaibara Y zan, have never enjoyed an ideal father-son relationship. In fact, it's about as far from ideal as possible, and when they start arguing about food--which they inevitably do--the sparks really fly. In this volume of Oishinbo the subject of dispute is fish, starting with the question of whether mackerel can ever be truly good sashimi. Later, things come to a head during the "Salmon Battle," which pits father against son in an epic contest to develop the best dish before a panel of judges. Will Yamaoka finally defeat Kaibara? Or will he once again be left in his father's shadow?

About the Author

Manga writer and essayist extraordinaire Tetsu Kariya graduated from prestigious Tokyo University. Kariya was employed with a major advertising agency before making his debut as a manga writer in 1974 when he teamed up with legendary manga artist Ryoichi Ikegami to create Otoko Gumi (Male Gang). The worlds of food and manga were forever changed in 1983 when Kariya, together with artist Akira Hanasaki, created the immensely popular and critically acclaimed Oishinbo. Akira Hanasaki is the manga artist for the culturally significant series Oishinbo, which has been continuously serialized in Big Comic Spirits since 1983. Kariya and Hanasaki won the 32nd Shogakukan Manga Award in 1987 for Oishinbo.

Claire on
Another in the fantastic Oishinbo series - Fish, Sushi and Sashimi sees the battle for the ultimate menu continue with the theme of fish preparation. This is a manga for the more mature "taste", offering an uncompromising insight into the world of Japanese cuisine. Along with humour, and some lessons in Japanese etiquette and tradition, this collection reveals the supreme art of knifework and identifying the finer elements of sashimi. Wonderful escapism and education all rolled into one!
