It’s now been two weeks since we launched my new book, ‘Cook Japan, Stay Slim, Live Longer‘ at The Club at The Ivy in London’s Covent Garden. I’m so thrilled to say that we had a full house of Japanese food enthusiasts and people who I have worked closely with over the years.
Guests sipped sake, kindly provided by Oliver Hilton-Johnson of Tengu Sake, ate a selection of my canapés (all in the book!) and tasted fresh wasabi from Nick Russel of The Wasabi Company. Oliver and Nick then joined me in presenting the health benefits of Japanese ingredients – the high antioxidant levels of wasabi, and powerful amino acids and selenium of sake, among others.
The night was a great success with every copy of the book selling out, so I just thought I’d take the chance to share a few photos with you and to say thank you to The Ivy, Absolute Press, The Wasabi Company, Tengu Sake, Yutaka, Kikkoman and Clearspring for making the evening such a special event!
