One of the best Japanese cookbooks out there!
on June 7, 2004
If you are interested in Japanese cooking, but have been intimidated by cookbooks that seem to fussy or complicated, then this book would be a great place to start. The recipes are easy to understand using very simple ingredients but the results are authentic delicious Japanese taste! One of the things I liked the best is that each and every recipe is accompanied by a photograph of the final dish (a lot of cookbooks just give recipes without pictures and if you are not familiar with the dish, then you may not even want to try to make it).
In addition, the recipes in this book are not just for bento boxes (lunch boxes). Made in larger quantities they can easily be adapted to making full Japanese meals - just add rice and miso soup!
