4.0 out of 5 stars Good introduction to Japanese cooking 30 Mar 2005
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book a few month ago and I now find myself cooking from it quite often. Contrary to what I believed, Japanese cooking is quite simple and boil down to just a few key ingredients which shouldn't be substituted with western counterparts. The book is easy to read, it gives a brief guide to the common foodstuffs used in Japan and have pictures of ingredients can be found in shops in london. All the recipes are traditional dishes that are straight forward to prepare. Having said that, I've not tried making sushi yet! The glossary at the back is also very helpful. I would recommend it to people who likes to eat Japanese but not cooked it. P.S.Some of the ingredients can be also found in Chinese supermarkets which might be easier to find.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful book for Japanese ingredients 4 Jun 2010
Being vegetarian, I haven't cooked much from this book which is decidedly omnivorous(I have other useful books). However the first half of this book- some 121 pages- is a full colour guide to Japanese ingredients- if you want to be able to spot vacuum packed ginko nuts without looking like a lemon then this is invaluable. There is a list of shops to buy from in the UK- sadly dated now- just head for Picadilly in London and mooch around- you'll find your heart's desire. Using this book I did find some RENKON- lotus root- a whole 2 foot of it. Sadly I didn't find it that repeatable an experience, but hey I tried it thanks to this book.
