This is a limited availability magazine.
This is a mold-breaking publication, unlike anything we have seen from another restaurant.
Why did the renowned Danish restaurant Noma stage a pop-up in Kyoto, Japan in the spring of 2023?
This handsomely photographed and designed journal, which calls itself a love letter to Kyoto, traces the origin to an invitation from chef Yoshihiro Murata of Kikunoi to Noma's Rene Redzepi, who spent two weeks in the city, cooking with Murata and exploring. He returned to Denmark "energized."
It would be years before the 3-month relocation of Noma to Kyoto took place, bringing 103 Noma employees to Japan in a remarkable effort.
Noma in Kyoto explains the allure of city's food culture, rituals, and etiquette. It celebrates its artisans, its street food, and fine dining establishments. It guides would-be travelers to sake bars, coffee houses, and bakeries, even to flea markets and temples.
There are descriptions of the dishes Noma served in Kyoto, but no recipes.
Paperback. Color photographs throughout.
