Vook releases The Breakaway Japanese Kitchen

We’ve launched a string of great vooks over the past month, and now we’re pleased to announce our latest title: The Breakaway Japanese Kitchen. Breakaway is our first “cookvook”—a vook that lets you read inspiring recipes and watch author Eric Gower make the dishes right in front of you. Eric prepares meals such as roasted hamachi with a miso-apricot glaze, udon with herby pesto and smoked salmon salad with edamame.

“The Breakaway Japanese Kitchen”
is available in both of our  standard formats—as a browser based vook and as an app for your iPhone or iPod Touch. We’ve also included a free preview mode of the vook so that you can try it before you buy it. This premier cookvook features recipes and professionally shot videos so you can easily learn how to prepare Eric’s contemporary Japanese dishes.

Having lived in Japan for more than fifteen years, Eric has developed an appreciation for minimalist cooking that achieves singular bold flavors. A cooking teacher and private chef, Eric is also the author of three cookbooks. “The Breakaway Japanese Kitchen” cookvook features more than a dozen videos of Eric preparing dishes, shopping for ingredients and guiding readers through his approach to bold, Japanese-inspired dishes.

“When Vook approached me about doing the first cookvook, the epiphany was immediate,” said Eric Gower. “Integrating written recipes and stories with in-the-kitchen visuals is such a no-brainer way to connect with home cooks everywhere. It’s the perfect medium to make hesitant cooks feel more comfortable, because you can SEE how simple the breakaway approach really is, yet still have the written instructions to guide you.”

Vook CEO Brad Inman summed up the appeal of The Breakaway Japanese Kitchen, saying, “A cookvook is able to take written recipes and complement them with an engaging visual component. It’s like having a personal chef to guide the home cook in the kitchen, step-by-step.”
