Tokyo is rightfully known around the world as one of the most exciting places to eat on the planet. From subterranean department store food halls to luxurious top-floor hotel restaurants, and all the noodle shops, sushi bars, and yakitori shacks in between, there may be no other city so thoroughly saturated with delicious food.



Tokyo Stories is a journey through the boulevards and backstreets of Tokyo via recipes both iconic and unexpected. Chef Tim Anderson takes inspiration from the chefs, shopkeepers, and home cooks of Tokyo to showcase both traditional and cutting-edge takes on classic dishes like sushi, ramen, yakitori, and tempura. Also included are dishes that Tokyoites love to eat with origins from abroad, like Japanese interpretations of Korean barbecue, Italian pizza and pasta, American burgers and more. Tim tackles his food tour of Tokyo from the ground up, with chapters broken down into: LOWER GROUND FLOOR: Tokyo on the Go (Department Store Basements, Subway Stations, and Convenience Stores); FIRST FLOOR: Tokyo Local (food traditional to Tokyo); SECOND FLOOR: Tokyo National (food traditional to Japan); THIRD FLOOR: Tokyo Global (Japanese food with an international twist) FOURTH FLOOR: Tokyo at Home (Japanese home cooking); and, FIFTH FLOOR: Tokyo Modern (experimental Japanese food found in high-end hotel bars). With Tim’s easy-to-follow recipes, this is make-at-home Japanese food, authentic yet achievable for the home chef - without cutting corners.



The real thrill of eating in Tokyo is rewarded in the sense of discovery - of adventurous curiosity. And that may come in the form of an unexpectedly good convenience store sandwich, an ‘oh my god’ sushi moment, or just the best damn bowl of ramen you've ever had. With
Tokyo Stories you can explore Tokyo and discover its incredible food without leaving your home kitchen. Featuring over 90 recipes, all set to the backdrop of Tokyo location shots, this is essential for the Japanophile in your life.

Cover Just one word: INGENIOUS. The cover spoke to me immediately. In fact, that's why the book caught my eye. The design simply reflects the theme perfectly: Japanese cuisine mixed with bright, modern colors and shapes that are strongly reminiscent of Tokyo. Writing style & photographs The author has an interesting, exciting and yet personal writing style. You can just tell how much he loves and knows the city. He describes the recipes in a way that is easy to understand so that no questions remain unanswered. I particularly liked the many aesthetic photographs, both of the food and of the city itself. They are simply wonderful to look at. Just like the colorful pages of the book. For a city with under 0.2% immigrants (no kidding!) Tokyo is a remarkably cosmopolitan city in terms of cuisine. - Page 8 My opinion I'm just a big fan of Japan. Both in terms of the culture and the delicious food. Accordingly, I was happy about this book. Colorful, aesthetic and simply Tokyo. I don't cook much and, to be honest, I don't have a great talent for it. But the recipes alone were or are not the impressive thing about this book. The eye-catching, colorful design, which simply goes perfectly with Tokyo, blew me away as a designer. In addition, the magical photographs that show the city and the food. For that alone, the book has already received 3 stars from me. It meets my taste exactly and inspires me just looking through it. Simple to Noble - The Recipes The diverse recipes then did the rest. From the simplest dishes on the streets of Tokyo to recipes that are served in the posh restaurants. There is so much that I didn't know before and all of the recipes that I really want to try. The first thing we tested was the sushi. It was not as difficult as many legends thanks to the precise instructions of the author. And after the second try, the roles got better too. My favorite recipe is the strawberry sando. As simple as it is delicious. An extraordinary sandwich combination. The strawberry and cream sandwich. Introduction to the ingredients and stories about the city At the beginning of the book there are references to the individual chapters, then one is first familiarized with the traditional ingredients such as miso, sake or rice vinegar. This gives you a nice overview and tips on how to keep the ingredients fresh longer, for example. At the beginning the author writes again about his experiences in the city and reports about it like in a kind of travel guide. All in all, I can only recommend the book. As diverse and varied as it is, it is simply worth it every now and then. Conclusion A wonderful, super cool cookbook with fantastic recipes from Japanese cuisine, mixed with small insights into Japanese culture and life in Tokyo.
