Nancy Singleton Hachisu, Japan: The Cookbook

Thursday, April 26, 2018 - 7:00pm

Bookshop Santa Cruz welcomes award-winning cookbook author Nancy Singleton Hachisu for a book discussion and signing of Japan: The Cookbook, the definitive, home cooking recipe collection from one of the most respected and beloved culinary cultures. With more than 400 sumptuous recipes by acclaimed food writer Nancy Singleton Hachisu, Japan: The Cookbook is a welcomed addition to Hachisu's body of work. The iconic and regional traditions of Japan are organized by course and contain insightful notes alongside the recipes. The dishes—soups, noodles, rices, pickles, one-pots, sweets, and vegetables—are simple and elegant.

Nancy Singleton Hachisu is a native Californian, Stanford graduate who moved to Japan in 1988. She lives with her Japanese farmer husband in an 85-year- old traditional farmhouse in rural Saitama. They have three young adult sons. Hachisu served as a leader of a local Slow Food convivium for more than a decade and is active in the artisanal food movement all over Japan. Her first book, Japanese Farm Food, was praised in The New York Times, London Times, and Los Angeles Times, and was translated into French, Dutch, and Japanese. Her second book on Japanese pickles and preserves, Preserving the Japanese Way, was shortlisted for The Art of Eating Prize, a James Beard Award, and a Gourmand Best of World Award.

This free event will take place in Bookshop Santa Cruz. Chairs for open seating are usually set up an hour before the event begins.
