About this deal

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 flavours 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. The author gives the example of using an entire daikon radish, from the trimmings and leafy top to the entire part of the root itself. I have read other reviewers disappointment that there are not more photos but I don't think the book at all suffers from it. A spare, seasonal, entirely surprising book, offering deep insight into the culture and its cooking practices.

And it also sums up Vegan Japaneasy really well, as a cookbook full of strong flavours that come together in the best way. Andoh invites you to practice kansha in your own cooking, and she delights in demonstrating how nothing goes to waste in the kansha kitchen. I’d say that you could easily double the wet ingredients for more impact – which is what I did the second time I made it.

There isn’t enough time given to properly cook the celeriac through, without totally burning the exterior. She is the James Beard Award-winning author of five books, including Japan: The Vegetarian Cookbook and Japan: The Cookbook. For example, the grilled eggplant in dashi has Japanese eggplant, Happo dashi, usukuchi shoyu, and grated young ginger; but once you make the Happo dashi by cooking konbu dashi, sake, mirin, and salt together, you get the sense that the sum of these ingredients is both technical and phenomenal.

Alongside, Hachisu shares her expert knowledge of the ingredients, culture, and traditions of this unique culinary style.
