Japan: The Vegetarian Cookbook, published by Phaidon, is a must-have for everyone who loves Japanese food culture. The comprehensive cookbook shows that there is much more to Japanese cuisine than just sushi and raw fish. The book contains over 250 delicious and versatile plant-based recipes that will delight both vegetarians and carnivores alike.
In this collection of new recipes, Nancy Singleton Hachisu, the most authoritative voice in Japanese home cooking today, showcases Japanese vegetarian dishes, bringing the exquisite flavors of the nation’s elegant cuisine to those who follow a plant-based diet or want to lower the amount of fish and meat they eat.
Recipes are divided by cooking style – dressed, vinegared, deep-fried, simmered, steamed, stir-fried, grilled, pickled, and sweet – alongside which Hachisu shares her expert knowledge of the ingredients, culture, and traditions of this unique culinary style.
