Japanese Soul Food
Tim Anderson delivers the punchy flavours of Japanese Soul Food, from ramen to pork belly buns
Former MasterChef winner Tim Anderson delivers the punchy flavours of Japanese Soul Food, from ramen to pork belly buns.
Think of a bowl of ramen overflowing with toppings and texture and flavour, gyoza full of umami and spice, or meltingly soft pork belly buns. Currently exploding on the UK scene by way of street-food, ramen bars and easy-going eateries, this is the antidote to typical Japanese restaurant cuisine.
From the Sasebo Burger to Japanese twists on fried chicken the book is full of unexpected treats. There are chapters on sauces, small dishes, large dishes, grilled items, ramen, desserts and drinks; Tim explains Japanese ingredients, how to get them, and how to substitute if you can’t; and he includes easy recipes for beginners as well as a couple of bigger projects for food geeks.
