Japan: The Cookbook

Nancy Singleton Hachisu
Published by Phaidon

The definitive Japanese home-cooking recipe collection from one of the most respected and beloved culinary cultures.

Japan: The Cookbook has more than 400 sumptuous recipes by acclaimed food writer Nancy Singleton Hachisu. The iconic and regional traditions of Japan are organised by course, with 15 chapters in total. Alongside the recipes you will find insightful notes that explain ingredients and techniques, and the steps are easy to follow. Dishes are simple and elegant, including many regional recipes that are not usually seen in English-language recipe books. There are soups, noodles, rice, pickles, one-pots, sweets and vegetables, many of which are illustrated with stunning overhead photography.

‘Of all the cuisines we hope to get to grips with, Japan’s is the trickiest, so we can’t wait to tuck into this bamboo-effect tome ... Nancy Singleton Hachisu ... demystifies tempura, teppanyaki and ramen, while arty photos display the dishes’
