The Japanese Table - Small Plates for Simple Meals
The Japanese Table is a celebration of the Japanese home-cooked meal – or Ichijuu-Sansai – where even the simplest of ingredients are treated like royalty. Spinach should taste like spinach, and placed on a pedestal. Sashimi is served with just soy sauce and wasabi for a reason – so that you can truly savor the flavor of the fish. Most of the recipes in The Japanese Table have vegetables at the heart of a meal, with meat used as a garnish or side dish. Featuring light and delicious snacks and sandwiches, such as a Tamago-Sando (omelet sandwich) with Miso Mayo and a Tofu and Sesame Salad; warming noodle dishes, like Udon with Poached Egg & Fish Roe; and soul-nurturing soups such as Clear Shiitake Soup, plus a selection of accompanying pickles and teas to pair with the dishes. With its gorgeous photography and simple approach to Japanese cuisine, The Japanese Table is the modern Japanese cookbook for fans of Japanese food and culture.
