The first cookbook from cult yakitori restaurant Yardbird puts the spotlight on chicken - taking grilling to a whole new level.

Chicken is the world's best loved meat, and yakitori is one of the simplest, healthiest ways to cook it. At Yardbird in Hong Kong, Canadian chef Matt Abergel has put yakitori on the global culinary map. 

Here, in vivid style, with strong visual references to Abergel's passion for skateboarding, he reveals the magic behind the restaurant's signature recipes, together with detailed explanations of how they source, butcher, skewer, and cook the birds with no need for special equipment. Fire up the grill, and enjoy. 

The first comprehensive book about yakitori to be published in English, this book will appeal to home cooks and professional chefs alike.

Overview:
  • Home-cooking recipes for the world's most popular meat - chicken - how to prepare it, how to cook it, and what to eat with it
  • Yardbird is Hong Kong's 'it' restaurant - a destination for chefs around the world, where you desperately want a reservation, and yet everyone has to form a line and wait to get in!
  • A wealth of visuals show how to use the entire chicken, according to Abergel's mantra of mottainai - Japanese for 'waste not'
  • "Yardbird's food is inventive and delicious, with riffs on Asian flavours that are exactly what you might hope for from a restaurant that follows Zak Pelaccio and Jonathan Gold on Twitter." —New York Post
