Morimoto is a rock star, an icon figure in Asian Fusion, an original atop a heap of imitators, and like a rock star, one of the only chefs—maybe the ONLY chef—who needs just one name. Accept no substitutes!— Anthony Bourdain
“Just like in his genius restaurants in Philly and NYC, where the food is juicy, provocative, and a wild fun house in my mouth, Morimoto makes revolutionary food simple to prepare in this excellent and inspired book.”— Mario Batali
When I got to know Chef Morimoto, I understood that besides cooking with your brain, your heart, and your hands, you can also cook with your soul.— Ferran Adria
Morimoto’s cooking has distinctive Japanese roots, yet it’s actually, as the chef calls it, “global cooking for the 21st century. Morimoto’s unique cuisine is characterized by beautiful Japanese color combinations and aromas, while the preparation infuses multicultural influences such as traditional Chinese spices and simple Italian ingredients, presented in a refined French style. Bringing all these elements home, with helpful step-by-step instructions and gorgeous photography, this accessible book explains Chef Morimoto’s cooking techniques and plating philosophies and brings Japanese cooking to your own home.
Chef Morimoto has been the Japanese iron chef on the Food Network’s weekly show, “Iron Chef,” and its spinoff “Iron Chef America,” since 1999. The show airs in the United States, Canada, Australia, Israel, and Hong Kong. Formerly the Executive Chef of the Sony Club and Nobu, Chef Morimoto now has his own restaurants in New York, Philadelphia, Tokyo, and Mumbai, and also created his own brand of sake and beer.
This cookbook makes it easy for those of us who don't usually cook Japanese food. My family and I have a lot of respect for Morimoto. We also think he should have his own show. You have all kinds of nationalities having their own show except Chineses, Japanese, or asian.
Good book with beautiful photo's. Is easy to read and to prepare the food. With the photo's it is nice to see how you must serve it.
Love this book! I bought this not only for cooking tips and some recipes, but also for a window into Morimoto's world. That is exactly what I received. More than just a cookbook. I bought 2 so I could give one to a friend who also appreciates the span of this book. Thanks!
If you're not a serious chef, this book is probably not for you. The recipes frequently require ingredients you won't find at a regular grocery store. There is a lot to learn in this book about Japanese cooking and technique. However, if you want to cook your way through this book, you'll need a great deal of skill and a pretty comprehensive asian grocery store. The photos in the book are amazing and it's an interesting read but most amateur chefs will have difficulty diving right in.
I absolutely love this book. Morimoto does not disappoint. This book includes some fantastic recipes. Everything that I have tried so far is absolutely delicious. Morimoto gives great old standards a new life. He mixes foods that I've, separately, loved in ways that I would not have thought of and makes them sound and look wonderful. This book, also, includes some beautiful photos that display his dishes as the works of art that they truly are.
