We are pleased to share a promotion for our next EYBD Book The Japanese Larder: Bringing Japanese Ingredients into Your Everyday Cooking by Luiz Hara. 

A follow-up to Luiz’s first book, Nikkei Cuisine, The Japanese Larder is a stunning book that demystifies Japanese cooking by introducing the home cook to a number of key Japanese ingredients and techniques that will transform their everyday cooking. 

Most of us have heard of ingredients such as miso, mirin, tofu and matcha, but how many of us feel confident using these ingredients in our everyday cooking, or beyond the one or two recipes for which we may bought such ingredients in the first place? This title will make those aging ingredients wasting away in your fridge a thing of the past.

Categorized by main ingredient, grab that packet of miso paste from your fridge, buy some ponzu or yuzu from your local grocery store or the ethnic section of your local supermarket, and discover a new world of taste and flavour thanks to the author’s delicious recipes.

Want to make your own ramen or udon noodles? Covered.  Soy millk or tofu? Covered. This title is brilliantly done with information to create your own larder of ingredients but also use those that you have purchased. For instance, Mochi pizza with gruyere, wild mushrooms and truffle, Buttermilk and sansho pepper crispy fried chicken, and Banana and kinako doughnuts are just a few examples. 

Our takes you inside this book and features the following dishes
