Book: Kansha, Celebrating Japan's Vegan and Vegetarian Traditions Nose-to-Tail Philosophy of Cooking Vegetables

A Japanese cookbook where nothing goes to waste is more than just a noble goal.

What's the vegetable equivalent of butcher's nose-to-tail, the meatless version of everything-but-the-squeal? In her latest cookbook, Kansha, Elizabeth Andoh explores the concept ichi motsu zen shoku (one food, used entirely), a Japanese vegan philosophy that means using every last bit of vegetables from frond-to-root. In other words, nothing goes to waste. Pickles become a frugal, nutritionally sound way of clearing out the vegetable bin—with the help of a little vinegar, kombu, salt, and soy sauce.

Project: Crowdsourced Cookbook, Fall Edition

How do you celebrate the beauty of autumn through food? Send us your best recipe to create the Fall Edition of the GOOD Cookbook



Autumn has a lot going for it: the foliage, the weather, Halloween, the World Series, and, of course, the food. As we gear up for Thanksgiving and the December holidays, food becomes a national fixation, with cooks around the country scouring their kitchens for their favorite recipes and stocking up on goods they're likely to buy only once a year (when else do you eat cranberry sauce?).

GOOD wants to know which recipe you're most excited to make this fall. Do you stick to the basics, like pumpkin pie and Brussels sprouts, or do you blaze new trails by throwing together whatever looks best from the farmers' market? Do you take advantage of the fresh produce to go the vegan route or does the chilly weather make you want to wrap everything in bacon? How does your family or culture celebrate autumn through food? We want to hear it all.
