KAISEKI has evolved into a highly formalised, artistic, multi-course meal that celebrates the seasons by using only fresh, natural and local ingredients. It is described as perfection on a plate by Time magazine. Standing at the pinnacle of Japanese cuisine, Kitcho is heralded by many as Japan's top restaurant. This book leads the reader behind well-guarded doors to the secrets, recipes, techniques, and philosophy of one of the world's premiere restaurants. Master Chef Kunio Tokuoka is a magician in the kitchen, yet his approach to cooking is alarmingly simple. How does he draw out the best flavours for a hearty stock? How can he cook a fish so that it becomes a transforming experience for even the most jaded diner? At Kitcho, a full-course meal is a multisensory experience to be savoured on many levels. It can be a revelation. It can change the way people think about food. This book will do the same. For the first time, the methods and thinking behind one of the world's greatest culinary traditions is unveiled from the source.
