For Chef Yoshio Saito, learning to cook traditional Japanese food at his motherâ??s side was a treasured part of his childhood. When she died when he was fourteen, he decided to honor her memory by learning how to cook her recipes and more.

In this cookbook, Chef Yoshio, a Tokyo native and trained French/Japanese fusion chef, introduces todayâ??s modern home cook to Okonomiyaki, one of the most popular comfort foods in Japan.

For him, the taste of Okonomiyaki is the taste of home. Gathering his favorite recipes, Chef Yoshio shares his tips for three major regional styles of this comfort food in this cookbookâ?"Hiroshima, Osaka, and Tokyo styles. As well as introducing classic Okonomiyaki dishes, Chef Yoshio shares his creative new dishes that expand the possibilities of Okonomiyaki.
