The past few years have shown a growing interest in cooking and food, as a result of international food issues such as BSE, world trade and mass foreign travel, and at the same time there has been growing interest in Japanese Studies since the 1970s. This volume brings together the two interests of Japan and food, examining both from a number of perspectives. The book reflects on the social and cultural side of Japanese food, and at the same time reflects also on the ways in which Japanese culture has been affected by food, a basic human institution. Providing the reader with the historical and social bases to understand how Japanese cuisine has been and is being shaped, this book assumes minimal familiarity with Japanese society, but instead explores the country through the topic of its cuisine.
Japan's geography is also the source of her unique cuisine. Long, narrow and mountainous islands make up the nation, and Japanese cuisine draws its ingredients from these mountains and seas. Nature and the seasons also play an important role in Japanese cuisine. Ingredients, cooking styles, garnishes and even tableware are chosen carefully to match each of the four seasons. Widely recognized for its low fat content, Japanese cuisine comprises an ever-changing menu of tastes and combinations.
Hideo was born in Yotsuya, Tokyo. His father was a playwright and owned two Japanese restaurants, Kihei of Tokyo and Misuji, where he commenced his training, whilst still at school at Shinjuku High School and through to Nihon University. Hideo learnt from his parents the principles of sushi and kappo-ryori food preparation, cooking and presentation. These methods have been passed down through generations of his family. At the same time, he learnt the philosophy of Chakaiseki (the tea ceremony cuisine), Teikanryu Shodô (Calligraphy), Ikenobou-Ryuseiha (flower arrangement) and Hôchô Shiki (the cooking knife ceremony) under the tutelage of Shijyoushinryu by Iemoto-Shishikura Soken-Sensei. After years of cooking and demonstrating in Japan, Hideo's interests led him to Europe to study classical French cuisine, England and then the United States, where he was able to combine his skills in Japanese and European cuisine by working as a demonstrator in California. This book has all the basics you need to know to make Teppanyaki at home including tools, ingredients, tips, rice and wok techniques. includes 60 recipes on beef, pork, lamb, chicken, fish and seafood as well as some vegetarian dishes and a section on rice and noodles.
