Item description for Izakaya: The Japanese Pub Cookbook by Mark Robinson & Masashi Kuma...

Presents a collection of recipes for dishes that are traditionally found in an izakaya, a Japanese pub.

Publishers Description
Japanese pubs, called izakaya, are attracting growing attention in Japan and overseas. As a matter of fact, a recent article in The New York Times claimed that the izakaya is starting to shove the sushi bar off its pedestal. While Japan has many guidebooks and cookbooks, this is the first publication in English to delve into every aspect of a unique and vital cornerstone of Japanese food culture.
A venue for socializing and an increasingly innovative culinary influence, the izakaya serves mouth-watering and inexpensive small-plate cooking, along with free-flowing drinks. Readers of this essential book will be guided through the different styles of establishments and recipes that make izakaya such relaxing and appealing destinations. At the same time, they will learn to cook many delicious standards and specialties, and discover how to design a meal as the evening progresses.
Eight Tokyo pubs are introduced, ranging from those that serve the traditional Japanese comfort foods such as yakitori (barbequed chicken), to those offering highly innovative creations. Some of them have long histories; some are more recent players on the scene. All are quite familiar to the author, who has chosen them for the variety they represent: from the most venerated downtown pub to the new-style standing bar with French-influenced menu. Mark Robinson includes knowledgeable text on the social and cultural etiquette of visiting izakaya, so the book can used as a guide to entering the potentially daunting world of the pub. Besides the 60 detailed recipes, he also offers descriptions of Japanese ingredients and spices, a guide to the wide varieties of sake and other alcoholic drinks that are served, how-to advice on menu ordering, and much more.
For the home chef, the hungry gourmet, the food professional, this is more than a cookbook. It is a unique peek at an important and exciting dining and cultural phenomenon.

Reviews - What do customers think about Izakaya: The Japanese Pub Cookbook?

Great window into a nearly untapped culinary scene.  Aug 11, 2008
I rarely buy a book without reading a review first, but this was an exeption. The need for a book like this was long overdue. Beautiful photos, competent procedure, and a savage reference to the everyday Japanese dining experience. Oh and the recipes are not too easy as to insult a practicing chef or too hard as to send the home chef across town on a wild goose chase for some never heard of ingredient. Worth your time.
