4.5 delicious stars. This book makes me want to jump into the kitchen and get cooking. I love the simple photos, the descriptions of each ingredient and the sauce recipes. A great Japanese reference recipe book that I'm sure I'll return to often. ...more
Flipping through this book, I was impressed. The book has a good format- explaining key ingredients at the start. The range of Japanese dishes covered is impressive- I can't think of a Japanese item that was not described. Even recipes for salads, dressings and condiments were included. English words are used to describe the dish (like "egg and chicken in rice"), so there is no need to translate in your head (like "oyakudon"). The writing is humorous and encouraging.

The problem with Japanese food, usually, is that it is a labor of love to make.

Additionally, it is a stunningly gorgeous book with edged pages, an embossed ...more
A simple and approachable cookbook that absolutely delivers in terms of simplicity! You won't fear the "complicated" Japanese cooking.

This is the selected book for the Food52 Cooking Club July 2019 cook-through. I cooked a few of the recipes and these were simple to make with delicious outcomes. We lived in Japan for three years, so I know what authentic Japanese tastes like. I can now make the sauces from scratch, saving me money from buying. This book will be well used for years to come.
