Kansha: Celebrating Japan’s Vegan and Vegetarian Traditions is an artful and practical cookbook by Elizabeth Andoh featuring plant-based cuisine crafted with Kansha, a Japanese word that refers to a sense of respect and appreciation. Here Andoh uses it as a way to  underscore her artful and sustainable approach to cuisine.


Already an authority on the Japanese kitchen, Kansha offers readers more than 100 elegant and well-crafted vegan recipes. Andoh offers dishes that highlight a truly root-to-petal* approach so that very aspect of the plant is fully utilized.

Attractively photographed throughout, this unique book deserves frequent pleasant perusal.
