In 2014, Bernard Radfar moved to West Los Angeles for one reason: to be closer to Toshi Sakamaki and his incredible Yakitori restaurant. Chicken Genius is a visual love letter to Toshi's cuisine and the care and grace with which he makes the best of the classic Japanese street food that is Yakitori (chicken skewers).

Bernard is not alone. Toshi's restaurant is the favorite of Chef Nobu Matsuhisa, who provides a glowing introduction to this beautiful book. It is not uncommon to be surrounded by many of Los Angeles' finest sushi chefs when dining in Toshi's restaurant. It's the care and precision with which Toshi puts together his Yakitori delicacies that make his restaurant, Yakitoria, the best of the best.

Chicken Genius is an art and lifestyle cookbook to be enjoyed in the kitchen or on your coffee table. With simple recipes from the restaurant as well as complete professional instructions and advanced techniques for butchering and skewering a chicken.
