Thursday Giveaway: Win a Copy of Morimoto: The New Art of Japanese Cooking

Giveaway: Morimoto: The New Art of Japanese Cooking, by Masaharu Morimoto
Shop: Available from Amazon for $26.40

Our giveaway today is in honor of the Beard Book Award nominees that we posted below. One of the nominee, in the "Cooking from a Professional Point of View" category, is Masaharu Morimoto, the well-known Iron Chef and executive chef of, at various times Nobu and Morimoto. Today we're giving away a copy of his Beard Award-nominated book, Morimoto: The New Art of Japanese Cooking.

The Amazon review, by Amy of Cooking With Amy, says that the book includes recipes like Sushi Rice Risotto, Morimoto Bouillabaisse, and Bagna Cauda with Crab Naan and Eggplant Shigiyaki (a kind of eggplant parmesan with mozzarella and red miso sauce). These all merge Japanese ingredients with Italian, French and even Indian classics. In addition to the restaurant style of many of the recipes, the book also features several recipes made on Iron Chef, which were originally accomplished in under one hour.

We like the sound of all this fusion cooking, especially by such an accomplished chef. It's a gorgeous book, too - heavy and well-printed with startlingly beautiful photographs.

To enter, tell us one Japanese dish you'd like to learn to cook.

Type a comment in the comment section below by 8:59pm PT/11:59 EST Sunday, March 30, 2008. The winner will be selected at random and will be asked to submit a review of the product. Good luck!

US residents only, please.
