Tim Anderson is a chef, food writer, and restauranteur. Born and raised in Wisconsin, Tim studied Japanese food culture at university and lived in Japan for two years. After moving to London, he won MasterChef in 2011, which catapulted him into a position as one of the UK's most prominent voices on Japanese food, American food, and craft beer. He has operated the pop-up Japanese restaurant Nanban since 2013, which has inspired his first book, Nanban: Japanese Soul Food.
"Anderson shares everything we need to know to make authentic
Japanese food at home which, in turn, eliminates all the reasons
("excuses") that we come up with for not doing so. The photos are
killer, the instructions spot on and the recipes and diagrams will
have us all whipping out gyoza (including making our own wrappers)
in no time."
