Nanban: Japanese Soul Food

by: Tim Anderson

Think a bowl of ramen overflowing with toppings and texture and flavour, gyoza full of umami and spice, or the meltingly soft pork belly buns popularized by Momofuku in New York. Currently exploding on the UK scene by way of street-food, ramen bars and easy-going eateries, this is the antidote to typical Japanese restaurant cuisine.

In Nanban, Tim Anderson brings us the best of Japanese Soul Food. From the Sasebo Burger to Japanese twists on Fried Chicken the book is full of unexpected treats. There are chapters on sauces, small dishes, large dishes, grilled items, ramen, desserts and drinks; Tim explains Japanese ingredients, how to get them, and how to substitute if you can’t; and he includes easy recipes for beginners as well as a couple of bigger projects for food geeks.

Nanban means Southern Barbarian in Japanese and it is what they dubbed the first European settlers. It is a fitting title for Tim Anderson whose passion for taking risks and soulful food saw him win MasterChefwith a burger recipe. Nanban also describes all that is good about the Soul Food recipes in this book: bold flavours, hearty dishes, and unrefined deliciousness.

Tim Anderson was winner of MasterChef in 2011. Tim Anderson is 32 years old and was born in Racine, Wisconsin. Aged 15, he chanced upon a Japanese cooking show called Iron Chef and fell in love with cooking. Tim moved to California to study Japanese food culture at Occidental college in LA and in early twenties he moved to Tokyo to immerse himself in regional Japanese food for two years. He met his British wife Laura and together they moved to London in 2008. Tim managed a craft beer bar near Euston station before entering MasterChef. Tim counts his main influences as his American heritage along with his love for regional Japanese cooking, but a passion for food science and modernist cuisine creeps in there too. A rather eclectic mix, but somehow it just works.
Since winning in 2011, Tim has carved out his dream career in food, working as a freelance chef, food writer and consultant. This varied role has seen him work with the likes of big brands, Google and Unilever, as well as hosting stages at food festivals and events throughout the country. He is also a regular presenter on Jamie Oliver’s Food Tube and Drinks Tube, as well as a staple of the Radio 4 food panel show The Kitchen Cabinet. But Tim’s proudest moment has to be the launch of his first cookery book Nanban: Japanese Soul Food and the opening of his acclaimed restaurant of the same name, in the heart of Brixton.
