COOKBOOKS

In 2011, Reiko released her first cookbook – ‘Hashi, A Japanese Cookery Course’ – with Absolute Press, and it was such a success amongst beginners and professional chefs alike that she decided to do a second book.

‘Cook Japan, Stay Slim, Live Longer’ was published by Bloomsbury in 2017, motivated by Reiko’s recognition that the Japanese diet is one of the healthiest and yet most delicious in the world.

Reiko has been busy over the last year teaching and training as well as spending time on her third book – ‘Japan – The World Vegetarian’. The book is one of the first in a brand-new series of ‘The World Vegetarian’ was released on the 30th of April.
