My luck definitely has changed...for the better!

Finding this awesome book is like finding a real Gem, and I couldn't believe my luck! I devoured this in one sitting because being part asian, I love, love to learn the secret ingredients of many of my most favorite side dishes.

This beautifully photographed book is filled with simple easy to follow recipes that taste as good and their photos. It has all the basic pickled delicacies you would recognize from many japanese meals and the ingredients are easy to find. The author focuses on this one subject which was very helpful to me. I can't wait to try another book from this series.
