Pros: very detailed instructions, colorful pictures, easy navigation.
Cons: only for advanced chefs, difficult techniques.
If you are all about the Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto, and the beautiful art of japanese cooking, this book is a must have. Morimoto's book is jam packed full of detailed easy to follow step by step visual instruction from preparing octopus to cutting pieces of raw ahi tuna and making it look like a rose petal! Along with instruction on his insane knife skill techniques that he breaks down for you, there are also beautiful pictures to go along with every recipe in his book! Morimoto even shares his recipe for his famous Ahi tuna pizza. I would definately pick this book up from amazon, I got it last year and still to this day use it!
