This book introduces these talented chefs working across all Nobu restaurants and hotels and showcases their signature dishes while also presenting Nobu's own signature dishes and including his personal and professional history. This book is without a doubt the best and most complete book about Nobu and the world he has created. This is the World of Nobu.
Nobuyuki Matsuhisa--known simply as Nobu to the world--was born in Japan, and trained in the time-honored sushi tradition in Tokyo before heading to Peru. He then went on to successive ventures in Argentina, Alaska, and Los Angeles, where he opened Matsuhisa in 1987. Seven years later, Robert De Niro persuaded him to open NOBU New York. Since then, he has opened over 55 restaurants and hotels across five continents.
