Many people are intimidated at the idea of cooking Japanese food at home. But in JapanEasy, Tim Anderson reveals that many Japanese recipes require no specialist ingredients at all, and can in fact be whipped up with products found at your local supermarket. In fact, there are only seven essential ingredients required for the whole book: soy sauce, mirin, rice vinegar, das ...more

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 instructions make the di ...more

The problem with Japanese food, usually, is that it is a labor of love to make. In this book, Chef Tim Anderson has taken his devout love of the cuisine and simplified it for cooks who don't have all day to spend in the kitchen. But the special part is that he has figured out how to retain the flavor of Japanese food. This book is a godsend for Japanese food lovers, and also anyone who just enjoys really delicious food. 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. I'd welcome cooking times though because sometimes it felt as if everything was "super uber easy and quick" and many recipes just required us to cook the food "until brown" etc., also it felt a bit westernised but often, I believe, reflected what the Japanese do really eat.

Recommended! <3

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.

I adore this book. I have always been fascinated by Japanese food. Now I can cook it! You must buy this. It is the best Japanese cook book ever for non-Japanese Japanese food lovers... um, yeah. That's it.

Good recipes. Some are hit or miss.

The katsu curry sauce was a little bit disappointing to be honest.
