Kept in the French National Library, the Shuhanron emaki is a seven-meter-long Japanese picture scroll composed by four paintings representing in a humorous tone a sake-lover nobleman, a monk fond of rice, and a warrior supporting the "Middle Way", i.e. moderation.
Synthesis of 5-year-long researches, this book is the first translation of this work rich in cultural, literary, religious and philosophical references. International experts in gastronomy, culture, literature and Japanese art of the 17th and 18th also contributed to it. All the detailed reproductions of the original scroll are accompanied by an iconography comment illustrating their meaning.
