I liked this book and wrote down a few things I'll google later to see about getting my husband to cook. He lived in Japan for a while in college and enjoys Japanese food immensely. He wasn't happy with my suggestions and actually took the book and wrote down lots of recipes for us to try. He enjoyed the writing and laughed at how perfectly she explained some of the experiences and oddities that a traveler who lives there will come upon in their stay. So if you've lived in Japan or traveled ther ...more

Mmmmmmm! Luscious cookbook with luscious food!! This book is a delight to the eye, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Don't just stop with reading, though. Dive in and cook up some fabulous Japanese food! My husband loved the Sesame Seared Beef! Yakitori Chicken Skewers, Chicken and Vegetable Rice Medley, Breaded Pork Cutlets, Five Color Salad, Spicy Pan-Seared Eggplant and Toasted Sesame Cookies--there's something for everyone!

If you don't have a good Asian market, you might have some trouble

The recipes are good, and it is helpful that in some of the recipes it shows you pictures of how to do it. I like how she tell you all the ingredient and kitchen ware you might need for you to start your cooking! I will try some of the recipes!!

I don't think anyone tested these recipes before placing them in cookbook. My food looked nothing like the picture. My buckwheat cookies looked like piles of turds and weren't crispy at all.
