Robata: Japanese Home Grilling by Silla Bjerrum

Robata: Japanese Home Grilling by Silla Bjerrum

Review by Niraja Singh

This beautifully-illustrated book introduces you to the art of this Japanese cuisine and teaches you how to cook this way in your own home, whether cooking on an authentic robata grill, your own barbecue or your oven grill. Choose from classic yakitori (chicken cooked on skewers), traditional Japanese fish robata dishes such as Miso Black Cod or a wonderful selection of vegetarian robata dishes.
