Rizzoli is set to deliver a new Nobo-centric cookbook in 2012. Nobu’s Vegetarian Cookbook is a focused look at healthy Japanese eating. Nobu Matsuhisa keeps the eye on the vegetable dishes with insight and expertise that travels across more than 60 recipes. “Nobu uses a wide range of cooking techniques—from marinating and pickling to steaming, roasting, boiling, frying, grating, etc.—to bring out the full flavors and textures of the vegetables. He also introduces tofu and yuba, both traditional Japanese ingredients made from soybeans, and offers ten recipes for vegetable sweets and fifteen for cocktails.” Pre-order from Amazon.
