An excellent introductory cookbook for the non-Japanese

We have a large collection of cookbooks, and this little book is one of the standouts. It is VERY hard to find a good cookbook on the basics of a national style, and this one just nails it. Fully one third of this book is devoted to ingredients, techniques, crockery, cookware and cutlery, regional information, and more - fully illustrated and in color. The information in this portion of the book is comprehensive - you aren't going to find it in Larousse (Larousse Gastronomique). I don't know of another source as good for an introduction to Japanese cooking and cuisine generally, for that matter. This section alone is worth buying the book if you can find it. Pages 124-247 are recipes, and every last entry is also pictured in color, usually with an additional picture or two on some relevant preparation technique. There is a reasonable, representative selection of dishes across the cuisine

great guide to Japanese cooking

This is the first Japanese cook book I ever purchased and it is still my favorite. The second half of the book is full of delicious easy to follow recipes. but its the first half that really makes this book shine. it has invaluable information on Japanese cookware and Japanese ingredients. This book is great for anyone interested in cooking Japanese food, from the beginner to the more advanced cook.

Fantastic Cookbook

My family just moved to Japan about a year ago and we have tried to replicate a lot of the dishes we get at restaurants at home. It has been tough! Well, this cookbook is awesome--it explains everything to you about the ingredients, Japanese cooking lifestyle, and cooking techniques. I absolutely love this cookbook!!!!
