Shoku-Iku Summary

Shoku-Iku: Japanese Conscious Eating for a Long and Healthy Life by Makiko Sano

Shoku-Iku is the way that Japanese people are taught about healthy food. It is part of the culture. This book reveals the secrets to how the Japanese stay so healthy in easyto-follow principles so you, too, can learn to eat mindfully, the Shoku-Iku way. Each of the five recipe chapters centres on one cooking method: steaming (or microwaving); grilling; simmering; no-cook; and sushi. You don't even need an oven to make the recipes. Learn how to make perfectly steamed sea bream in the microwave and serve with with a light, ultra-savoury dressing, or grill up a satisfying Japanese turkey and tofu burger. Clear and graphic illustrated spreads show you how to choose which vegetables, fish or grains to optimise your health and which can help with specific ailments. Shoku-Iku also means learning how to eat, making time for your meals and serving a spread of dishes to honour your body, even if you are eating alone. With this book, you too can eat like the long-lived Japanese. The recipes are joyful and playful: learn to make dolls or 'cupcakes' from sushi, celebrate a party with a Japanese shabu-shabu, or hot pot, where you and your guests cook your food in a communal pot, or enjoy a 'full Japanese' garden breakfast. As with Japanese food in general, most of the 70 brand-new recipes here are largely gluten-and dairy-free, many are vegan and some raw. And all the recipes are unbelievably simple, as that is the Shoku-Iku way.

About Makiko Sano

Makiko Sano grew up in Tokyo, Japan, where she was immersed in cooking from a young age. Her cooking inspiration comes from the females in her family: her mother, grandmother and her aunts, their bustling Japanese kitchens and food styles. Her family was all about preparing meals from scratch. She has lived in London for the past 20 years with her four children. Makiko's restaurant, Suzu, specializes in Japanese tapas, including traditional sushi, sashimi and tempura as well as dishes that she has created herself. She decided to offer sushi classes because people kept on asking how to make it and she has now taught thousands of people. Makiko's first book Sushi Slim, also for Quadrille, was published in April 2013.
