Book Description

Sept. 15 2006
Healthy Japanese, written by a home cook for other home cooks, brings the best of healthy modern Japanese cooking.

Life expectancy in Japan is the highest in the world, heart attacks and cancer amongst the lowest, and diet is a major contributing factor. And there's not just sushi and noodles.

Barber offers 120 health-giving, simply prepared recipes such as Chicken Hotpot and Aromatic Steamed Salmon, all made from ingredients readily available in North America. She demystifies and simplifies the tradition of Japanese cooking, mixes it with bits of ancient wisdom and presents it with classic Japanese elegance and 60 stunning colour photos by Jan Baldwin.

I have never felt compelled to write a book review before now, having put this book through its paces I am so enthused that I thought I would share my thoughts will all. I totally love this book!!! I own quite a few japanese cookbooks, I fall in love with the pictures and the recipes, they sound sooo wonderful but when it comes down to actually cooking them I usually don't. They seem too fiddley or I can't get some of the ingredients etc etc. I believe Kimiko Barber is the Jamie Oliver of japanese cooking, the contents of this book are so easy to understand, good straight forward cooking with a Japanese flavour. I particularly enjoyed Komiko's notes explaining the health benefits offered by each recipe along with it's cultural/historical background or sometimes Komiko's own nostaglic memories of her childhood, family and homecooked meals in Japan. Especially helpful is the explanation of certain ingredients, ones that we may not understand, and don't worry about being able to find such ingredients as Komiko offers a western alternative (thank you Komiko). I consider this book to be money very well spent, this is a book you can sink your teeth into......so to speak :) I will now purchase Komiko's previous books as I'm certain they will not disappoint.

***** Informative, beautiful & VERY USEABLE.
