Monk - Light and Shadow on the Philosopher's Path

$49.95

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.

Author: Yoshihiro Imai, Naomi Reis (Translated by), Emmy Reis (Translated by), Yuka Yanazume (By (photographer)), Julia Hasting (Designed by).
