Monk - Light and Shadow on the Philosopher's Path
An evocative and personal chef monograph -- and an ode to wood-fired cooking -- from Japan's exciting emerging chef
monk is the story of Yoshihiro Imai's 14-seat, seasonally inspired restaurant, set on the cherry blossom-lined Philosopher's Path in Kyoto.
Through personal essays, reflections, recipes, and photography, Yoshihiro describes stories of the farmers, makers, and exceptional ingredients -- from foraged vegetables to herbs and flowers -- that inspire his omakase-style menu, explains why cooking with fire is central to the restaurant, and traces the evolution of the unpretentious, innovative, and flavorful pizza for which he is now renowned globally.
