Good for reading and looking at but ...,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Nobu's Vegetarian Cookbook (Hardcover)
This is a visually stunning and inspirational cookbook, but don't expect to learn how to make these beautiful dishes from this book. It is assumed that you know the technique to produce the dishes, so really all you get is an ingredient list and a pretty picture. The beautiful cover? The text on how to make all of those pieces of vegetable nigiri is covered in exactly 1/3 of one page! However, the last chapter in the book contains recipes for all of the sauces used earlier on. In my opinion, the cost of the book is worth it for this treasure trove of Nobu's sauces. They can be used in a variety of dishes, not just the ones listed in this cookbook. Knowing what I know now, I would still purchase this book.
