Notes about this book

  • Rinshin on December 17, 2021

    I have lots of Japanese language cookbooks on izakaya (eating and drinking places) food and tradition. This is a very good book with easily made recipes using few specialized ingredients that are essential such as dashi, kombu, ponzu etc along with substituted components found in most western countries. A contemporary style of izakaya food found throughout Japan, normal everyday Japanese home cooking and what is available as ready made meals found all over Japan in convenient stores, markets, etc written English language.

Publishers Text

In Your Home Izakaya, chef Tim Anderson explores the 'anything goes' concept of izakaya by showcasing over 100 flavour-packed recipes.

Izakaya began as sake stores that allowed their customers to drink on the premises, and, over time, they began to serve food as well. The food is simple to prepare but big on flavour, making it conducive to sociable snacking in between gulps of booze.

From Radish and Watercress Salad and Sweetcorn with Soy Sauce Butter, to Spicy Sesame Ramen Salad and Udon Carbonara with Bacon Tempura, the recipes are impressive yet simple to achieve and no specialist equipment is needed. Plus, it includes a guide on how to stock a Japanese bar as well as how to knock up a few choice cocktails.

Full of delicious dishes, Your Home Izakaya is perfect for anyone wanting to make show-off food fit for a dinner party with minimum fuss and maximum fun.
