Présentation de l'éditeur
Japanese conscious eating for a long and healthy life
Shoku-Iku is the way that Japanese people are taught about healthy food. It is part of the culture. This book reveals the secrets to how the Japanese stay so healthy in easyto-follow principles so you, too, can learn to eat mindfully, the Shoku-Iku way.
Each of the five recipe chapters centres on one cooking method: steaming (or microwaving); grilling; simmering; no-cook; and sushi. You don't even need an oven to make the recipes. Learn how to make perfectly steamed sea bream in the microwave and serve with with a light, ultra-savoury dressing, or grill up a satisfying Japanese turkey and tofu burger.
Clear and graphic illustrated spreads show you how to choose which vegetables, fish or grains to optimise your health and which can help with specific ailments. Shoku-Iku also means learning how to eat, making time for your meals and serving a spread of dishes to honour your body, even if you are eating alone. With this book, you too can eat like the long-lived Japanese.
The recipes are joyful and playful: learn to make dolls or 'cupcakes' from sushi, celebrate a party with a Japanese shabu-shabu, or hot pot, where you and your guests cook your food in a communal pot, or enjoy a 'full Japanese' garden breakfast.
As with Japanese food in general, most of the 70 brand-new recipes here are largely gluten-and dairy-free, many are vegan and some raw. And all the recipes are unbelievably simple, as that is the Shoku-Iku way.

Makiko Sano’s new book “Healthy Japanese Cooking” (published in the UK as “Shoku Iku”) immediately caught my eye; having lived in Japan on multiple occasions, I have long been attracted to Japanese washoku (traditional cuisine) and shojin ryori (Buddhist vegan cuisine). Traditional Japanese meals are based on the freshest seasonal ingredients, engage all the senses, and if eaten properly and with mindfulness, should leave you satisfied but not stuffed (the Japanese concept of hara hachi bu, or eat until you are 80 percent full).
Beginning with the essential dashi (stock) and dressings (rosemary soy, sweet soy, sesame salad sprinkle, shabu shabu and others), there are very handy illustrations and step-by-step photos to instruct you on rolling sushi, julienning vegetables, etc. Dashi is the backbone of most Japanese soups / hot pots, and you'll find several variations here, including basic dashi (kelp + bonito flakes), vegetarian dashi (kelp and dried shiitake), Motoko's dashi (made with liquid from cooking brown rice; I had not seen this method in my other cookbooks!), and two soup stocks.
I found the chapter on steaming particularly helpful as I have not cooked fish via this method before, but you’ll find heavenly steamed sea bream, a posh cod dinner in 20 minutes, steamed chicken, stuffed veggies, pork dumplings, etc., most cooked in the microwave. However, a word of caution; these recipes were tested at 800 watts, and it would appear that American microwaves are more powerful in general (mine is 1.58 kW), so you may need to adjust cooking times.
Some of the steamed dishes are cooked on the stovetop; my new favorite discovery is the “Full Japanese” garden breakfast, full of leafy greens, tomatoes, mushrooms and eggs nestled into the greens. I also loved the vegan monk recipe for stuffed pumpkin and steamed sticky rice, which is full of carrots, shiitake, and mushrooms (you can leave out the chicken to make it vegan). And my favorite steamed custard chawanmushi also makes an appearance, as do perfect teatime snacks mochi, sweet potato treats, and fruit buns.
The fried chapter includes Japanese burgers and shrimp barbecue, but you’ll also find healthy low-fat vegetarian options like Japanese grilled vegetable “stir fry” (half grilled, half steamed), eggplant and shallot salad, “full of goodness” (with a liberal helping of my favorite Japanese vegetable, lotus root!), and chili tofu. The sushi chapter features an amazing brown shiitake and pumpkin sushi, temaki, sesame seed salmon sushi, brown rice tuna sushi with sweet-hot sauce, five senses super-tasty salmon sushi, and some new variations like wasabi cream cheese sushi with lamb, avocado and pear quinoa power sushi, and sushi canapes.
Ingredients are listed both in metric and US (volume). Beautiful full-color photos by Lisa Linder capture the aesthetic of Japanese cuisine, with beautiful tableware that offsets the featured dish perfectly.
The resulting dishes, all of which embrace the “shoku iku” philosophy, are light, nutritious, and provide plenty of variety of colors, flavors, and textures that are sure to brighten any meal. I found several new dishes that I plan on making frequently, including the egg and tofu dashi soup, rice noodles with mushroom broth, pan tai, iced tomatoes, brown shiitake and pumpkin sushi, and steamed sticky rice.
If you are new to Japanese cooking / flavors, then “Healthy Japanese Cooking” is the perfect introduction as it uses commonplace ingredients (you may have to order some of the more traditional ingredients like kombu and bonito flakes online), simple techniques, and is aligned much more closely with the traditional Japanese diet based on fish and vegetables than many Japanese cookbooks aimed at Western audiences.
(Thank you to Makiko Sano for the review copy!)
The text is aesthetically arranged and is pleasing to read. Instructions are clear and sufficient for getting the job done. Tips are given that show the author is aware of the common challenges of novice are.
The recipe are easy but delicious.
If you like to cook, want to eat more healthfully and love Japanese food, I highly, highly recommend this book.
