One of the most intriguing traditions in Japan is that of adopting Western cuisine and altering it slightly to make it uniquely Japanese. This style of food is called Yoshoku and many of its creations are now classics, enjoyed throughout Japan and beyond. In this book, Jane Lawson draws on her own extensive understanding of Japanese flavours and ingredients to present an exciting collection of approachable yoshoku dishes. Experience the wonderful flavours of Japan including golden nori chicken, hearty beef, shiitake and red wine stew or nashi strudel with ginger ice cream.
