Kaiseki Cooking


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,


I posted this in the Japan forum but I wanted to see if I could get more eyes on it.


I want to start bringing the influences of Japan and Kaiseki into my cooking and had some quick questions. 


Is Kaiseki: The Exquisite Cuisine of Kyoto's Kikunoi Restaurant still the best book on Kaiseki cooking? I know it is a restaurant cookbook, but looks like it also gives the general basis for Kaiseki cooking and what exactly Kaiseki cooking is a modern sense.


Has anyone apart from Jo read the Japanese Culinary Academy books? Volume 1 and 2 interest me the most, starting with volume 1. I know Volume 1 touches on Kaiseki as well.


Thank you!
