Chicken is the world’s best-loved meat, and yakitori is one of the simplest, healthiest ways to cook it. At Yardbird in Hong Kong, Canadian chef Matt Abergel has put yakitori on the global culinary map. Here, in vivid style, with strong visual references to Abergel’s passion for skateboarding, he reveals the magic behind the restaurant’s signature recipes, together with detailed explanations of how they source, butcher, skewer, and cook the birds with no need for special equipment. Fire up the grill, and enjoy. The first comprehensive book about yakitori to be published in English, this book will appeal to home cooks and professional chefs alike.

“Matt Abergel and Lindsay Jang are the arbiters of cool in Hong Kong, and at Yardbird, their Japanese-influenced flagship, they serve the best yakitori in the world.” —Conde Nast Traveler
