Publishers Text

This is a collection of recipes from Japan and Indonesia adapted for simplicity and savour. In Japan, the focus is on tiny portions, form and presentation. The cooking is likened to a pure art and mouth-wateringly healthy. From all the variations of sushi and raw fish eaten with cucumber rolls or pickled ginger to pan fried duck and scallops or seafood and chicken baked in foil to cabbage with a miso dressing, there are dishes for many occasions, whether it is a simple lunch or more lavish entertainment. The dishes are quick and easy to prepare, but exacting on presentation. Further south, the Indonesians eat lots of vegetables, often raw in salads or stewed in cocunut milk or with tomatoes. Fresh tumeric, lime, basil, mint, galangal, nutmeg, vanilla and coconut are the abundent flavourings in dishes to provoke the palette. There is great variation in indonesian food, from smoked fish salad with basil and lime, prawns encrusted with spices, to green beans in a coconut sauce, perfect for eating with rice.
