    NEWS FLASH!(June 2015)
    Yes, we won!!!
    'Shojin Ryori: The Art of Japanese Vegetarian Cuisine' has won the Best in the World in Gourmand World Cookbook Awards under the category of Best Japanese Cuisine Book.
    This is my very first cookbook and I feel so venerated to be presented with such honour and recognition. The hard work & effort that were spent certainly paid off.
    I have to attribute the success of this cookbook to my publisher Marshall Cavendish, chief editor, creative designer, photographer and resellers. Their generous advice and assistance have been very thoughtful & significant. I am also grateful for the support & encouragement that I received from my partner and friends (especially Goto family). Without them, today's success simply won't be possible.
    Last but not least, I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude for all your well wishes & sharing the great news!

    Shojin ryori is the art of Japanese vegetarian cuisine that originated from the Japanese Zen temples, but is today widely popular all over the world for its healthful and well-balanced meals prepared without meat, fish, eggs or dairy products.

    With clearly written step-by-step instructions and insightful cooking tips, chef Danny Chu of Enso Kitchen will show you how to transform simple, readily available ingredients into creative, flavourful and satisfying shojin ryori meals in your home kitchen

    About the Author
    Danny Chu is a former foreign currency trader who left the corporate world and followed his passion to Japan to learn more about shojin ryori, the art of Japanese Zen cuisine. With hard work and unwavering determination, Danny mastered traditional Zen temple cooking and became the first shojin ryori chef in Singapore. He ran Enso Kitchen for several years, delighting both vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike with his creative dishes, and garnered rave reviews from the media, including Wine & Dine, Travel+Leisure, BBC Good Food, Appetite, The Peak, Business Times and Channel News Asia. Today, Danny is based in Taiwan but returns to Singapore every quarter to organise lunch and dinner sessions which are eagerly anticipated and quickly snapped up once bookings open
