About Otaku Food! Japanese Soul Food Inspired by Anime and Pop Culture

Otaku Food! Japanese Soul Food Inspired by Anime and Pop Culture was written by Danielle Baghernejad and includes color photos throughout.

Japan fever has taken the west by storm, with its exquisite cuisine and otaku “nerd” culture! With engaging storylines and complex characters, it’s no surprise that anime draws the most attention, attracting people of all ages. And some of those obsessions are seen in the food! From beautifully animated bowls of ramen and curry to sweeter delicacies like cakes and confectionery, the food in anime is so detailed, it almost looks real. If only you could reach into your screen and take a bite…now you can!

Otaku Food provides recipes for foods seen in the most famous anime films and shows, and teaches chefs of all levels to make them using simple ingredients easily found at your supermarket and in your pantry. Embrace your inner otaku (and spice up your food game!) with these unique yet simple Japanese dishes.

With our increasing hunger for Japanese pop culture, comes an appetite to match. And with dishes from pop culture icons like One Piece and Naruto, manga and anime can finally be enjoyed in the comfort of your very own kitchen. Whether you’re enjoying Japanese ramen from Naruto or fried rice from Food Wars, readers and foodies can learn about Japanese cooking basics and some new series to enjoy, featuring recipes like:
