The samurai lifestyle was nourished by a simple, balanced diet that lent the warriors strength and agility on the battlefield. Mealtime was a time for replenishment and rejuvenation, centered around wholesome foods like lotus root, dried taro stems, wasabi and shiso.

In this Japan Society TALKS+ event, Kanna Himiya, author of The Samurai Gourmet and a descendant of the chef of the powerful Maeda samurai clan from Ishikawa Prefecture, reveals the ancient recipes and eating habits of Japan’s legendary military class. The Gohan Society is pleased that Chef Michael Romano, a valued member of our Board of Directors and food ambassador of Ishikawa Prefecture, will moderate the discussion.

The event will be followed by a book signing and sake tasting reception featuring sake produced in Ishikawa Prefecture.
