Emiko is hosting a hands-off Sundowner Session at Sydney Seafood School on December 5th, 2023, to celebrate the launch of her new book.
Emiko is an Australian-Japanese food writer, photographer and cookbook author based in Italy. She has written six cookbooks, Florentine: The True Cuisine of Florence (March 2016 and a new edition in November 2020), Acquacotta (March 2017 and a new edition in February 2023), Tortellini at Midnight (March 2019), Torta della Nonna (March 2021), Cinnamon & Salt (April 2022), published by Hardie Grant. In September 2023 her sixth book, Gohan, which is about the Japanese cuisine of my upbringing, was published by Smith Street Books.
'Gohan: Everyday Japanese Cooking, Memories and Stories from My Family's Kitchen' is a book about simple, everyday, homely Japanese food of her upbringing - the food that she is most nostalgic for, that would be her last supper request, that she craves when she's not feeling her best and need some comforting nourishment. Her soul food.
