Japanese Kitchen Knives: Essential Techniques and Recipes

Japanese Kitchen Knives: Essential Techniques and Recipes Lowest new price: $20.66
Lowest used price: $14.90
List price: $29.95
Author: Hiromitsu Nozaki
Brand: Hiromitsu Nozaki

Sales of Japanese kitchen knives are booming in the U.S. But how many people have the skills to use these superbly-crafted tools to full advantage? Now, internationally renowned chef Hiromitsu Nozaki shares his expertise and insights in a book that will help anyone who owns a Japanese knife to maximize its performance.

In Japanese Kitchen Knives, Nozaki teaches the reader how to use usuba, deba and yanagiba, the three main traditional Japanese knives. He explains many essential techniques, such as the importance of understanding blade angle and point of force, and illustrates these lessons by working with ingredients familiar to western readers, like carrots and rainbow trout. Color photos and Nozaki’s commentary further clarify the process, and the pictures are taken from the chef’s perspective for easier understanding (most other books take photos from the reverse perspective). Each technique is accompanied by recipes that require its use, and all recipes are very simple, using easy-to-acquire ingredients. Other sections include a look at artisanal Japanese knife — making and information on sharpening, storing and identifying the variety of Japanese knives. Specialty knives are shown on location, from the unique unagi eel knife in an unagi specialty restaurant to the colossal tuna filleting knife in Tsukiji fish market.

The Decorative Art of Japanese Food Carving: Elegant Garnishes for All Occasions

The Decorative Art of Japanese Food Carving: Elegant Garnishes for All Occasions Lowest new price: $17.33
Lowest used price: $12.49
List price: $24.95
Author: Hiroshi Nagashima
Brand: imusti

Japanese cuisine is renowned for the beauty of its presentation. Among the key elements in this style of presentation are mukimono — the decorative garnishes and carvings that add the final flourish to a dish. It might be a carrot round in the shape of a plum blossom. Or a scattering of cherry blossoms plucked from a radish. Perhaps a swallow, a butterfly, a ginkgo leaf or a cluster of pine needles. Whatever the motif, it will have been created to delight the eye and the palate with its shape, color, and taste.

In The Decorative Art of Japanese Food Carving, internationally-acclaimed chef Hiroshi Nagashima offers 60 edible garnishes and food carvings for home, party or professional use. Some are designed to be set on top of the food. Others are fashioned to hold the food…and sometimes, they simply are the food.

Each is introduced in full color, with easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions, sample food arrangements, further ideas and secret, insider tips for successful presentation. Most are simple enough for the amateur chef to master, although a few are quite challenging and require much practice. Nagashima’s instructions rely on household utensils found in a typical American kitchen — from knives to peelers to cookie cutters — and use familiar, easily-attainable ingredients.

The Decorative Art of Japanese Food Carving is more than a practical handbook, however. It is also an inspiration book, filled with creative suggestions and inventive ideas to enhance and transform the way we cook.
