Journalist Sash Issenberg traces sushi's journey from Tokyo street snack to global delicacy, in this fascinating history. Issenberg examines not just the foodstuff itself, but the history, economics and businesses behind the famous fish recipes. It covers topics including the birth of modern sushi, the mysterious underworld of pirates and the tuna black market, Nobu Matsuhisa and what sushi chefs really do behind the bar. It jumps from Mediterranean docks to tuna-auctions to cargo holds to Shanghai streets, all the while making a surprising case against eating local.
