In the past decades, Japanese food has become part of the global culinary scene: sushi, maki, miso soup, teriyaki, and tofu have found their way to our plates and palates. Japanese cooking not only harmoniously combines flavors and aesthetics, it is also praised for its nutritional and health benefits. This book introduces readers to the essence of Japanese cuisine: what are the basic ingredients and utensils? Which basic recipes need one know to cook Japanese style? Why is rice so important that the word "gohan" (rice) also means "meal"? More than one hundred recipes of traditional yet simple Japanese dishes are explained step-by-step with tips and variants. Beautiful photographs of soups, noodles, sushi, meat, fish, seafood, vegetables, and deserts (chocolate tofu mousse, matcha tart with almonds and lemon, to name but a few) take you on a tour of Japanese culinary culture.

Would you fancy a mammoth steak or simply some natural foods enjoyed by mankind in the Old Stone Age, long before the rise of agriculture? This book is the ultimate companion to anyone interested in the oldest human diet ever, which greatly contributed to our evolution. Archaeologists, anthropologists and paleontologists studied the bones and teeth of our ancestors and their living environment to reconstitute their nutritional habits. This book results of these scientific studies and is a serious introduction to paleo cooking. While the paleo diet is limited to basic ingredients, such as meats, fish, eggs, vegetables, fruits, herbs, nuts and seeds, it offers a lot of nutritional benefits, as it is gluten-free, low-carb and relies on fresh products. This is sufficient to keep away modern diseases linked to poor nutrition, such as over-weight or diabetes.

The concept of clean eating is becoming increasingly popular among adults, however it is children who are the most vulnerable to additives and nasty toxins such as sugar, found in unhealthy, processed, and fast food. Because children are still growing and developing, it’s important they consume adequate vitamins and nutrients through their diets. Children are, after all, our future. The concept is simple: using fresh ingredients in their most natural state. We say goodbye to gluten, wheat germ, refined sugar, and genetically modified oils, as these can be addictive, acidic, deplete energy, and can cause sluggishness, mood swings, and hyperactive behaviour in children. Feeding the Future is a glossy lifestyle/cookbook filled with inspiring recipes that all children—from those aged two to grown-up “kidults”—will love. These recipes are clean, nutritious, and delicious, as well as being easy to make. The book is the perfect tool for health-conscious and time-poor parents.
