CIBI | Meg Tanaka, Zenta Tanaka
CIBI ('a little one') is a book on home-style Japanese cooking inspired by the eponymous Melbourne café and design space created by Meg and Zenta Tanaka. It contains more than 80 seasonally relevant recipes across vegetables, fish and seafood, meat, grains and noodles, and sweets, plus small features on elements of Japanese cooking and food culture, accompanied by beautiful photography and illustrations. The recipes, many designed for sharing, strongly reflect Meg and Zenta's ethos – a fresh approach to simplicity using quality produce.
"delightfully imaginative collection of Japanese-inspired dishes that make the most out of seasonal ingredients. The Tanakas blend a playful approach to healthy, flavorful recipes that rely on fresh ingredients."
