Publisher review:
Haute Chinese cuisine ranks in the same revered category as that shared by the highest levels of French dining and Japan's Kaiseki – and that is what Yuji Wakiya aims for. He has taken food that has been too often seen as a take-out staple steeped in artificial additives and given it layers of delicate, subtle flavor and an elegant touch.
A native of Japan who has trained under the most illustrious Chinese chefs, Yuji Wakiya became executive chef of his first Chinese restaurant when he was only 27 years old. Wakiya revolutionized Chinese cuisine in Japan by serving single portions in many courses, allowing diners to enjoy his impressive talent in a variety of flavors, textures, and appearances.
His unique style – captured in this book – comes from the combination of his deep knowledge of authentic Chinese food and culture and his Japanese aesthetic for refined presentation. The text focuses on this cuisine's unique aspects, complete with his commentary. Additional information ranges from the medicinal properties of certain ingredients to making elaborate shang tang soup from scratch, and reconstituting dried Chinese ingredients, and includes Chinese cooking techniques that have never been introduced in detail in English.
Over seventy dishes are presented in this cookbook, – from appetizers through the meat and vegetable dishes to the desserts – in the same style that Wakiya serves its guests. Like no other Chinese cookbook before, Haute Chinese cuisine from the kitchen of Wakiya is a dramatic treat for connoisseur and the intellectually curious.
