This unusual book offers an intriguing and readable introduction to the Japanese tea ceremony and the foods that accompany it, what is called Kaiseki cuisine. Former chef Vitell (A Taste of Heaven and Earth, LJ 8/93) is now an assistant at the San Francisco branch of an international school of tea. In spare, elegant prose, perfectly suited to her subject, she describes the ceremony and the refined dishes that are part of it (she likens Kaiseki to the best California cuisine, but without its overelaborate presentations). Among her recipes are Baby Artichokes with Pomegranate Vinaigrette and Glaze-Grilled Salmon with Ginger. Recommended for larger cookbook collections as well as for any library where there is a special interest in Japanese culture.
