This evocative and movingly written book celebrates a Michelin-starred restaurant that recreates in New York City some of the enchantment of shojin ryori, a Buddhist vegan tradition. Stunningly photographed, and supported by precisely detailed recipes, Kajitsu is inspiring in it attention to seasonality and to the best qualities of the ingredients it employs. Its 272 pages reflect a careful attention to serenity and reflection. In English.
