Product Description

This is the book in which nothing happens but everything is consumed! It’s ‘The Walking Man’ at lunch!! What do we learn about Mister Inogashira? He’s a sole, independent trader importing household and fashion goods from France into Japan. He is always busy but never rushed as he travels around Japan selling his wares.

He’s a private person who, whilst he enjoys the company of women, prefers to remain a bachelor. He smokes cigarettes but never touches alcohol. But above all, he enjoys his food! He is The Solitary Gourmet!

Each of the thirty-two chapters explores another dish in another restaurant in another part of town - from Tokyo to Tottori, from Osaka to hospital (yes!) and even ventures to an Algerian restaurant in Paris, eating and observing. This volume collects all 32 chapters created over two decades and includes the hospital chapter.

Like an exquisite meal, this book should be savoured over and over again.
