Taka sushi chef/owner Taka Moriuchi wrote a cookbook. It will release on
December 31 of this year January 31, 2014, but you can pre-order it now. The book is apparently called Sushi and Passion, though the cover elaborates: "Taka Sushi and Passion: Fine Japanese Cuisine and Sushi by Chef Taka Moriuchi."
The Amazon book page includes some information about Moriuchi and his restaurant, but not about the book itself. Luckily, Moriuchi is an avid blogger and over the months has shared that his book will cover the types of Japanese fish and the Japanese way of cooking and will be a "sushi bible for sushi lovers." Here's the copy from Amazon:
Taka began practicing the art of sushi at Soto when Soto opened his sushi restaurant in August 1995. He stayed on with the flourishing restaurant for four years before partnering with Kevin Rathbun to open Bluepointe in 1999. In February of 2002, Taka started his own restaurant known as Taka Sushi Café. Taka's revered sushi restaurant took on the sushiandpassion tagline in 2007. What is sushiandpassion? It is inspired by Barry Manilow's famous song Copacabana in which he sings of Music and Passion. Since becoming the sole owner of Taka Sushi in 2006, Taka's restaurant has become a renowned Buckhead dining establishment with celebrity patrons from Hollywood actors and professional athletes to musicians and TV personalities: John Travolta, the Dixie Chicks, Kiss, Matt Kuchar, Ian Poulter, Luke Donald, Dallas Austin, Jake Gyllenhaal and more.· Sushi and Passion (Savory Books) [Amazon]
