Description: At renowned Sansei Seafood Restaurant & Sushi Bar -- a destination spot in Hawaii for locals and tourists alike -- Chef Dave "D.K." Kodama's exciting culinary style wins rave reviews and attracts fans in ever-increasing numbers. D.K.'s special contribution to contemporary Island cuisine might be described as tradition joined with innovation, reflecting D.K.'s Japanese heritage and Hawaiian upbringing, his work and travel experiences, and his infectious joy and love of life. But, most of all, D.K.'s cooking philosophy reflects his concept of family, which includes not only relatives but also all the colleagues and friends who have made contributions, large and small, along the way. With three wildly successful restaurants (two on Maui and one in Honolulu), D.K. and his "family" wow their nightly crowd of devotees with a dining experience that is uniquely multicultural, wonderfully original -- and fun!
In this collection of popular restaurant dishes, D.K. begins with a primer on making sushi at home, describing basic ingredients and techniques and presenting easy-to-follow instructions for delicious combinations both familiar and new. Small-plate and large-plate recipes follow, with award-winning favorites such as Mango and Crab Salad Hand Roll with Thai Vinaigrette, Japanese Calamari Salad, and Asian Rock Shrimp Cake with Ginger-Lime-Chile Butter. A selection of sweet plates includes restaurant classics as well as timeless dessert recipes from D.K.'s mother. In all, more than 125 recipes emphasize using the freshest locally available ingredients, particularly fish and seafood -- after all, the restaurant slogan is "Home of the Other Red Meat" (ahi, of course!).
D.K.'s Sushi Chronicles from Hawaii presents a fun, friendly, and very personal look at a brilliantly conceived facet of Hawaii Regional Cuisine, bringing it straight to your home and making it part of your family's traditions, too.
