I already have every other book of his and have cooked several dishes from them
I was excited about ordering his book as another addition to my cookbook collection and just as excited as I flipped thru the pages to see some of the dishes I have ordered before. Beautiful presentation and the pictures are wonderful. Most of the dishes are in the other nobu books of past but I say dishes not recipes....
As I'm sure other reviews also have mentioned there are no quantities for any ingredients in the book what so ever....
Some of the dishes like the white fish sashimi with dry miso doesnt exactly need ingredient amounts as it's all pretty self explanatory, especially if your well versed in a kitchen.
But for dishes like the Monk Fruit mango mousse cake you need amounts, or the Chilean sea bass with black bean sauce. Even the basic recipe for his tempura batter isnt given amounts and it's only 3 ingredients you could spend weeks trying to get the ratio right and even if it was working would it be close probably not. Would it be easier to look in another book for a tempura batter recipe yes of course...
Given the price of this book and its utter lack ingredient amounts, it's a 70 dollar plus coffee table book.
If your looking for some recipes from nobu stick with his other books... if you want a nice coffee table book that will get you in the mood for something fancy and delicious or get your creative cooking side going sure get this but... this other books make great coffee table books as well and they have ingredient amounts ....?
