    1. The book features photography of the same guy who photographed for "Izakaya: the Japanese pub Cookbook", another cookbook that I recently read. He won an award for the photography in this book and it shows, as his photos are exquisite. His photographs make everything look amazing, even all the eel, fish innards, and other odd food items that there is no chance that I would be eating. The book describes in detail the cuisine of the famous Kikunoi Restaurant in Kyoto, which I had never heard of be [...]

    2. When I visited Japan, I had the opportunity to enjoy the rare treat that is the kaiseki meal. These are multiple courses of food offered in small portions. The focus is on both presentation and variety of taste.I recall the overall experience being a feast for the senses. When I returned to my room, I had been truly indulged.This book brings back so many delightful memories. Literally, this is the serving of food as Art. The pictures invite the anticipation of taste. Ah, a rare pleasure.

    3. A beautiful book, generous with full page and full color photography. This is a definitive look not only into exuisite Kaiseki cooking, but into the spirit of Kyoto. Though I never had the financial wherewithal to even look in the direction of a restaurant like this, it captures the Kyoto spirit with the emphasis on the delicate and artistic. Note the immaculate attention to seasons and ingredients. The recipes included in this book are a sidenote - the real treat is the brief discussion of each [...]

    4. The first thing that attracted me to this book was its exquisite photography of delicate and refined Japanese cuisine, and while this remains the book's principal virtue, the text, by the chef himself, explains a lot about the dishes' development, history, structure, seasonality and meaning within the broader context of Japanese cooking and Japanese culture as a whole.For those brave enough to attempt them, there are recipes for all the featured dishes in the appendix.

    5. Kaiseki is the utmost choice for Japanese Foods's lovernice to know how to make itt recommend to make it yourselfnsidering this is not for beginner cook:)
