Author(s): Nobu Matsuhisa
Nobu Matsuhisa is in a class of his own and his restaurants remain very much the places to eat. In "Nobu West", the first of his books to be written and published originally in English, he collaborates with Mark Edwards, Head Chef at Nobu London to create over 120 Westernised Nobu recipes. Working with seasonal produce in the kitchens of the Nobu restaurants in London, Nobu and Mark have made the unique Nobu repertoire more accessible, simpler and even more delicious. The range of recipes include: Crispy Skin Poussin with Spicy Lemon Garlic, Dover Sole with Spicy Onion Ponzu, Iberian Pork with Soy and Ginger, Mediterranean Shrimp Ceviche, Rice Pizza and Suntory Whiskey Cappuccino. Filled with advice on sourcing and preparing ingredients and essential cooking techniques, the book is immediately more accessible to those less familiar with Japanese food and culture. Enticing photographs of the finished dishes by master Japanese photographer Eiichi Takahashi, as well as numerous step-by-step sequences act as an invaluable guide to the cook and make this one of the most beautiful cookbooks of 2006.
