The great tastes of seasonal ingredients and nutrition are all packed into Nabe (pronounced nah-beh), a festive and traditional Japanese hot pot meal eaten during the cold season. When family and friends are gathered around the Nabe, not just the body, but the heart is warmed and the ties to one another grow tighter.
Japan has been graced with both the sea and the mountains and each locale has its own special Nabe that it takes pride in. And that unique ﬂavor that each Nabe has itself is truly full of charm. For "in Japan" volume one, from local Nabe that started in the kitchen, to long standing Nabe full of local specialty foods, we will introduce a variety of Nabe from 24 diﬀerent areas in Japan. Please try some piping hot Nabe cooking, packed with authentic tastes of the season.
