Nobu’s restaurants are known the world over for the quality of their ingredients and for the skill and originality with which the food is prepared and presented. Now, in this first cookbook by Nobu to focus on vegetable dishes, the master chef shares his expertise and deep knowledge of Japanese cuisine in sixty recipes that showcase vegetables in all their variety.
Throughout the book, the emphasis is on fine and healthy Japanese dining. Nobu uses a wide range of cooking techniques—from marinating and pickling to steaming, roasting, boiling, frying, grating, etc.—to bring out the full flavors and textures of the vegetables. He also introduces tofu and yuba, both traditional Japanese ingredients made from soybeans, and offers ten recipes for vegetable sweets and fifteen for cocktails.

Since then, he has opened 25 more restaurants around the world. In recognition of his influence on cooking worldwide, Time magazine chose him as one of Asia’s Heroes in 2005. He has appeared as a guest on numerous television shows ,including “The Martha Stewart Show,” “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “The Today Show,” and others.
