5.0 out of 5 stars The spirit is the message June 9 2005
By C Yu - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The most valuable part of the book is not the recipe list. It's the introductory sections that describe the spirit of the Zen Vegetarian kitchen, and the principles that govern cooking in the monastic kitchen. All of the preparations are simple; based on principles of obtaining the freshest ingredients in season, the recipes aim to let the vegetables express their flavor without much dressing up. Recipes are organized by season, then by vegetable. The pictures and illustrations are excellent as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars elegant, old school, and delicious Feb. 22 2010
By J. Abinanti - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I had a copy of this book when I lived in Japan, and I cooked from it all the time. The beautiful color section really helped to demystify produce sections in Japanese supermarkets, so that I knew what I was buying and what time of the year to look for it. There are some recipes that you probably won't see much elsewhere in English--several vegetarian dashis, chawan mushi (soft hot savory custard) made with tofu and veggies rather than eggs and seafood. This lovely cookbook is a real treasure!

5.0 out of 5 stars A hidden gem - grab one! Nov. 26 2012
By FoodCrafters - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I bought this book a few weeks ago in a second hand bookstore in Camden Town for a few bucks. It seemed nice at first sight.

But when I sat down and carefully studied it- WOW! An excellent, truly authentic book packed with lots of simple recipes for tons of vegetables - everything that the author ate while living in Japanese buddhist temples. I dare to say this is the vegetarian equivalent of Japanese Cooking: A Simple Art, so if you loved it you'll love this one too. Quite complete without being an academic reference, a few pictures, but a lot a high quality drawings, and clear instructions.

The nice thing is really that most recipes are super simple and fast (and obviously super light and healthy), and most of them only call for 3-7 ingredients, so you won't need to spend your whole day in the kitchen which make this book perfect for quick afterwork dinners at home. You'll find the perfect way to turn that lonely carrot drying into your fridge into a delightful japanese appetizer to delight your guest (or yourself for that matter).
