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.
