Junk Food Japan

9781472919922Junk Food Japan

First off, I want to know WHY we do not eat Japanese Junk Food everyday. These recipes sound amazing. The full color photographs of each dish make your mouth water. I realize this is not traditional Japanese, but an intensely kicked up version. Written by Ex-Nobu head chef Scott Hallsworth, you know each and every recipe is going to be fantastic. Now, some of these ingredients may be a little bit of a challenge to find if you do not live in a larger city. That is no excuse. If you want to eat well, you sometimes have to search for ingredients. Can you say online ordering? Some of my favorite recipe titles are: Squid Kara-Age with Yellow Chilli Dressing, Beef Fillet Tataki and Pan Fried Duck Roll.Can you say YUM? This beautiful hardbound book is your guide to “Junk Food Japan”. Now, pardon me, I need to make a trip to the Asian market.

Ex-Nobu head chef Scott Hallsworth showcases the incredible food that is making his restaurant, Kurobuta, one of the most talked-about restaurants in London.

Packing a heavy punch and offering a fresh new look at Japanese food, Kurobuta chef Scott Hallsworth prides himself on reworking the “Iazakaya” Japanese pub style of relaxed eating and drinking. Kurobuta serves food that is both incredibly inventive yet comfortingly familiar. The restaurant’s signature dishes–Barbequed Pork Belly in Steamed Buns with a Spicy Peanut Soy Sauce, Tea Smoked Lamb and Kombu, and Roasted Chilean Seabass–are packed with flavor and are guaranteed to wow friends, family, and hungry gatecrashers.

Featuring 100 recipes brilliantly showcasing Scott’s wild and inventive style, Junk Food Japan presents re-imagined Japanese classics, alongside a selection of new, stunning dishes, including Tuna Sashimi Pizza and Wagyu Beef Sliders. There’s plenty of gastronomic fun to be had in Junk Food Japan.
