In "Everyday Harumi", Harumi Kurihara, Japan's most popular cookery writer, selects her favourite foods and presents more than 60 new home-style recipes for you to make for family and friends. Harumi wants everyone to be able to make her recipes and she demonstrates how easy it is to cook Japanese food for every day occasions without needing to shop at specialist food stores. Arranged by her favourite ingredients, Harumi presents recipes for soups, starters, snacks, party dishes, main courses and family feasts that are quick and simple to prepare, all presented in her effortless, down-to-earth and unpretentious approach to stylish living and eating. Every recipe is photographed and includes beautiful step by steps that show key Japanese cooking techniques such as chopping skills or how to serve rice. Texture and flavour are important to Japanese food and Harumi takes you through the basic sauces you can make at home and the staples you should have in your store cupboard.
