Staff Reviews


As a California white girl mildly obsessed with Japan, I couldn’t be more excited for a book entitled The Gaijin Cookbook. The fact that it comes from Ivan Orkin, renowned New York ramen chef who spent decades in Tokyo, and Chris Ying, whom I’ve followed since the first issue of Lucky Peach, means I’m already heating up my stove and anxiously refreshing Instagram for new peeks of this accessible cookbook for anyone in love with Japanese food.

Ivan Orkin is a self-described gaijin (guy-jin), a Japanese term that means “outsider.” He has been hopelessly in love with the food of Japan since he was a teenager on Long Island. Even after living in Tokyo for decades and running two ramen shops that earned him international renown, he remained a gaijin.
 
Fortunately, being a lifelong outsider has made Orkin a more curious, open, and studious chef. In The Gaijin Cookbook, he condenses his experiences into approachable recipes for every occasion, including weeknights with picky kids, boozy weekends, and celebrations. Everyday dishes like Pork and Miso-Ginger Stew, Stir-Fried Udon, and Japanese Spaghetti with Tomato Sauce are what keep the Orkin family connected to Japan. For more festive dinners, he suggests a Temaki Party, where guests assemble their own sushi from cooked and fresh fillings. And recipes for Bagels with Shiso Gravlax and Tofu Coney Island (fried tofu with mushroom chili) reveal the eclectic spirit of Ivan’s cooking.
