   Fish, Sushi and Sashimi / story by Tetsu Kariya, art by
   Akira Hanasaki. -- San Francisco, CA : Viz Media, 2009. --
   257 p. : ill. ; 21 cm. -- (Oishinbo, a la Carte) -- Summary
   (from SkyRiver): Yamaoka and his father, Kaibara Yûzan,
   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?" -- Call no.: PN6790.J33H327 O41305 2009

   col.) ; 21 cm. -- (Oishinbo, a la Carte) -- "Izakaya occupy
   the same vital space in the Japanese culinary landscape as
   tapas bars in Spain or tavernas in Greece. Unpretentious,
   frequently boisterous, they're places to meet with friends
   or business partners to unwind over drinks and small dishes
   that range from hearty standards to refined innovations. In
   this volume of Oishinbo, Yamaoka and Kurita investigate
   classic izakaya foods such as edamame and yakitori, devise
   new dishes to add to the menu of an old shop, and discover
   how the concept of 'play' is essential to the enjoyment of
   food." -- Call no.: PN6790.J33H327 O413052 2010

   (Oishinbo, a la Carte) -- Summary (from SkyRiver): As part

   Japanese cuisine. -- Call no.: PN6790.J33H327 O4130525 2009

   2009. -- 253 p. : ill. ; 21 cm. -- (Oishinbo, a la Carte)
   -- "In this volume of Oishinbo, Yamaoka and company look
   into the single most essential food in Japanese cuisine:
   rice. Cultivated for millennia, a staple meal in itself and
   the basis of countless other dishes, rice is an important
   component not only of the Japanese kitchen but also of
   Japanese culture. When Yamaoka is asked by Tozai's head
   chef for help in coming up with a new rice dish, what
   starts out as a simple culinary request rapidly grows into
   a disquisition into the past, present and future of Japan's
   food culture." -- Call no.: PN6790.J33H327 O413053 2009

   published in 2005 by Shogakukan Inc., Toyko." -- Title on
   spine and running title reads: Oishinbo: Ramen & Gyoza. --
   "Few foods inspire as much passion and partisanship as the
   dish of noodles in broth known as 'ramen.' Hot or cold,
   plain or miso, from fancy fusion creations to humble
   roadside takeout, ramen is truly a beloved food, one that
   can give rise to fierce loyalty or fiercer criticism (not
   to mention the occasional fistfight). In this volume of
   Oishinbo, Yamaoka and company inquire into the 'soul of
   ramen,' from the flour used in the noodles to the chickens
   used in the broth. And where there's ramen, there's gyoza:
   little dumplings made with a variety of fillings and served
   as a side dish. Will Yamaoka be able to create an
   'ultimate' gyoza before Kaibara creates a 'supreme' one?"

   ill. ; 21 cm. -- (Oishinbo, a la Carte) -- "For centuries
   different types of sake have played the same roles in Japan
   as wine and beer have in the West, from inexpensive
   everyday drink to refined single-batch rarities. Above all,
   sake has been enjoyed as an accompaniment to a meal, and
   after a revelatory moment one night, Yamaoka decides that
   drink pairings must be an integral part of the Ultimate
   Menu. So which foods go best with which drinks? Sit down,

   by Kaibara Yûzan, Yamaoka's father and nemesis. The
   ingredient this time is vegetables, specifically cabbages
