Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
For me, eating and cooking are essentially the same: I like to cook what I eat and I like to eat what I cook. Mood is a factor in what I put together, but underlying it all is a Hawaii state of mind, a bond with those childhood food experiences that has evolved into a Hawaiian fusion cuisine. My cooking encompasses my Asian background and my Western training as a chef, embracing a wide range of ingredients and cooking techniques from Europe, America, Asia, and beyond. It is a bold and flavorful style that takes advantage of the freshest and best products available in Hawaii and elsewhere. -from the Introduction"Using salsas, spices, and even pancetta, Yamaguchi puts a multi-cultural spin on the familiar while honoring Hawaiian flavors." —People magazine"Yamaguchi has helped pioneer a cuisine that combines Hawaiian ingredients and traditional dishes with French, Italian, and Japanese techniques and flavors." —Bon Appetit
