Sushi taste and technique

Sushi taste and technique

The book focuses on the importance of nourishment, balance and seasonality in our everyday cooking. The essence of Japanese cuisine is to ‘enhance’ nature’s offerings rather than to ‘change’ them so food is eaten whenever possible, in its natural state. This style of cooking helps to explain why the Japanese have the highest life expectancy in the world with lower cancer rates and heart problems. The book offers over 100 health-giving recipes with modern twists as well as helpful advice on cooking techniques and serving.

The chopsticks diet

The Chopsticks diet

The book looks at losing weight in a different way. We all know that the only way to lose weight is to eat less, but this does not always come to us easily, especially when we are bombarded by a load of rules and requirements as well as lists of excluded foods. This cookbook does not involve calorie counting, refer to a pre-calculated index, exclude some essential food or worse still, limit the selection of foods allowed. There is one basic rule – eat these delicious healthy balanced Japanese foods with chopsticks. Chopstick eating naturally promotes smaller mouthfuls and slows you down.
