Samurai Chef: Introduction to Japanese Cookery and Feast Design

Think and cook like a medieval Japanese chef. Look beyond recipes to the underlying techniques, assumptions, and cultural expectations of premodern Japanese aristocratic cookery and dining.

No cuisine is simply a collection of recipes. Recipes are always embedded within a culinary tradition. Learn some of the essential techniques of medieval Japanese cookery. Learn some of the built-in assumptions. Learn about ingredients, Japanese notions of “taste”, dietary theory, cooking, and the essential arts of selection and presentation through cooking Japanese food.
