Combining traditional Japanese influences, French technique, and more than 20 years of cooking in the Midwest, James Beard Award-winning chef Takashi Yagihashi introduces American home cooks to essential Japanese comfort food with his simple yet sophisticated recipes.
Emphasizing quick-to-the-table shortcuts, the use of fresh and dried packaged noodles, and kid-friendly dishes, Yagihashi explains noodle nuances and explores each style’s distinct regional identity. An expert guide, he recalls his youth in Japan and takes cooks on a discovery tour of the rich bounty of Japanese noodles, so readily accessible today.
Yagihashi’s exuberance for noodles, ranging from Aje-Men to Zaru, is sure to inspire home cooks to dive into bowl after soothing, refreshing bowl.
