Absolute Press- Japan Cookbook, World Vegetarian Series

Shooting this book was an absolute pleasure!!! Absolute press are a dream to work with, so when they approached me back in April 2019 to shoot this, I obviously jumped at the chance.


It was a 5 day shoot with wonderful chef Reiko Hashimoto, who also runs an amazing Japanese Cookery school in Wimbledon, South East London. We photographed a range of dishes during the shoot, here’s just a few of them- Aubergine Yuzo Miso Bake, Beansprout Pancake With Miso Wasabi Mayo, Broccoli Matsumae Style, Kakiage Tempura With Daikon Dipping Sauce, Kitsune Udon, Miso Ramen, Nigiri Zushi,… I could go on and on! All wonderful dishes. Definitely a cookbook you should go out and buy.


Big shout out to the rest of the team-
