Motoko Iwasaki
Japanese writer and author of: “Un Cuore da Nutrire" (A Heart to Feed), Motoko Iwasaki’s book takes readers on more than just a gastronomic journey, but deeper into the culture of his homeland: The Land of the Rising Sun. Ranging from his encounter in a temple with a great Zen Master, to recollections of a difficult childhood, each account is rich and authentic, imaginative while at the same time, light-hearted. His reflections concentrate on the profound relationship between food and the spirit. Eschewing the usual clichés, his book is for anyone interested in the ‘Real Japan’, as it gets to the essence of things.
