Harris Salat's stories have appeared in The New York Times, Saveur, Gourmet, Salon, and other publications. After stints as a dairy farmer, bread baker and cook, Harris turned to journalism in the early 90s. He reported for Associated Press radio, produced TV news at CBS News and CNBC, and worked in internet media before pursuing his taste for storytelling, travel and good eats.
Harris has become increasingly drawn to Japanese cuisine over the past decade, traveling to Japan and writing about the food culture, and training in Japanese restaurant kitchens in New York, Tokyo and Fukuoka. He is the co-author of "Takashi's Noodles" (Ten Speed Press) and "Japanese Hot Pots" (Ten Speed Press). Please check out Harris' blog, The Japanese Food Report, www.japanesefoodreport.com.
