Focusing on a subset of Japanese cuisine, Tim has delivered a detailed, authentic and accessible guide to ramen, and the dishes found in the izakaya (Japanese bar). The context of each dish is explained, and regionality explored - variations and British substitutions are listed where possible. Being bar food, there's also a recommendation for which drinks to have with particular dishes - perfect!Read more ›

This is a wonderful book. Written with genuine affection for Japanese cuisine, it introduces small but significant changes to both familiar and less familiar recipes from the southern region. After a run-down of the essential ingredients, Nanban includes chapters on small dishes, larger plates, grilled items, ramen (huuzah!), desserts and finally drinks. The extensive ramen section was a particular favourite of mine, finally answering some of my burning questions about how to recreate this labour of love in one's own home. That said, I'll also admit to nearly swooning when I discovered a sub-section on ice cream (including recipes for hojicha ice cream and shichimi-chocolate ice cream).

What you need to know is this: this is a book written by someone who loves this food and, quite clearly, would be thirlled to have more people exploring it. The dishes all look and sounds fabulous, but it is Tim Anderson's enthusiasm that has got me hungry to start cooking.

I just love this book. It is so clearly written from the heart and is a fantastic introduction to Japanese cooking & ingredients. Lots of challenging stuff to cook as well as super easy recipes. Can't wait to eat at his new restaurant in Brixton!

An accessible and entertaining introduction to Japanese food. The author has culled together a collection of recipes that are authentic Japanese but can be made with what is available to shoppers in the west. He writes clearly and the layout of the book is uncluttered.

There are a few ingredients which may be difficult to source, in these cases readily available alternatives are offered.

Overall this is a book for japanophiles however anyone interested in Asian cuisine or anyone interested in something different could definitely find a something worth their while here.

Contrary o another reviewer I find that the binding adds to the book. It reminds me my time in japan and only means that the done stands out that hit more while on the shelf.

A seriously gorgeous book in both design and content. Anderson's recipes are clear, thoughtful and guaranteed to wow all palettes. Clear a day in your schedule now to make the labor-intensive but oh so delicious tonkotsu ramen!

Nanban is clearly a labour of love - with a thoroughly entertaining introduction, in which Anderson tells the story of how he became obsessed with Japanese food up to the opening of his restaurant in London followed by pages of beautiful and quirky recipes accompanied by painstakingly researched advice and pro-tips for getting the best out of recipes.

There could have been a danger that a lot of these recipes would seem daunting, but there are often work-arounds and alternative methods/ingredients suggested for those who don't feel quite ready to tackle the intricacies of some of the more complicated dishes.

I have yet to tackle the ramen recipe, but once I can find a good place to source pork bones (suggestions welcome) I'm going to be going for it .

I would not recommend buying this book on kindle. I really wish I'd have held out for a print version as it was expensive on kindle and the design is so beautiful, it would have been much nicer to have as an object.

Lovely book, very nicely made and a nice object. The recipes are cool too, a nice variety and it educates you too so that you know what everything means and why it's done that way.
