monk: Light and Shadow on the Philosopher’s Path

This book is currently available for pre-order and will be ready for shipping and instore pickup after April 14th 2021.

An evocative and personal chef monograph — and an ode to wood-fired cooking — from Japan's exciting emerging chef

monk is the story of Yoshihiro Imai's 14-seat, seasonally inspired restaurant, set on the cherry blossom-lined Philosopher's Path in Kyoto. Through personal essays, reflections, recipes, and photography, Yoshihiro describes stories of the farmers, makers, and exceptional ingredients — from foraged vegetables to herbs and flowers — that inspire his omakase-style menu, explains why cooking with fire is central to the restaurant, and traces the evolution of the unpretentious, innovative, and flavorful pizza for which he is now renowned globally.
