A Dictionary of Japanese Food: Ingredients and Culture
A Dictionary of Japanese Food
Ingredients and Culture
Paperback      ISBN: 4805313358
Nominated for the Glenfiddich Food Book of the Year Award, this timeless volume is the first and only book of its kind on the subject.

A Dictionary of Japanese Food helps food lovers around the world decipher the intricacies and nuances of Japanese cooking and its ingredients. Definitions in ordinary cookbooks and standard dictionaries--such as akebia for akebi, sea cucumber for namako, plum for ume--can be inadequate, misleading, or just plain wrong. Richard Hoskings eliminates the mystery by ensuring that each entry in the Japanese-English section includes the Japanese term in Roman script; the word in kana or kanji or both; a Latin name where appropriate; an English definition; and, for most entries, a short annotation.

The English-Japanese section defines relevant English food terms in Japanese and annotates those needing explanation. One hundred small line drawings make it easy for readers to identify everything from mitsuba to the okoze fish, and seventeen appendices address the most critical elements of Japanese cuisine, from the making of miso and the structure of the Japanese meal to the tea ceremony.

Newly typeset and featuring a fascinating and informative new foreword by Japanese cookbook author Debra Samuel, A Dictionary of Japanese Food will continue to help both food lovers, and visitors to Japan discover the wonders of one of the world's great cuisines.

Momofuku
Hardcover      ISBN: 030745195x

With 200,000+ copies in print, this New York Times bestseller shares the story and the recipes behind the chef and cuisine that changed the modern-day culinary landscape.

Never before has there been a phenomenon like Momofuku. A once-unrecognizable word, it's now synonymous with the award-winning restaurants of the same name in New York City (Momofuku Noodle Bar, Ss m Bar, Ko, M P che, Fuku, Nishi, and Milk Bar), Toronto, and Sydney. Chef David Chang single-handedly revolutionized cooking in America and beyond with his use of bold Asian flavors and impeccable ingredients, his mastery of the humble ramen noodle, and his thorough devotion to pork.

Chang relays with candor the tale of his unwitting rise to superstardom, which, though wracked with mishaps, happened at light speed. And the dishes shared in this book are coveted by all who've dined--or yearned to--at any Momofuku location (yes, the pork buns are here). This is a must-read for anyone who truly enjoys food.

The essence of Japan is captured right here in this beautiful Japanese cookbook

More than any other cuisine in the world, Japanese food is a complete aesthetic experience--a delight for the eyes, the nose and the palate.
