What People are Saying About This

Terence Conran

"I cannot think where you could find a more beautiful collection of products than the Japanese cooking utensils illustrated and described in this book. If there was ever an example of the form and beauty following function, this is it. They make you want to slice, grind, sieve, strain, cook and eat."

Nobu Matsuhisa

"These kitchen tools-like the dishes they are used to prepare and serve-are windows into the heart of Japanese culture. They are made by dedicated artisans for very specific uses, and only come to life in the hands of a chef who honors and respects them."
