Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this on recommendation and am delighted with it. The 'homestyle' dishes may not reflect current trends in Japan, but these are dishes I've been served by my grandmother-in-law and in Japanese Inns. The book is certainly full of the 'homestyle' dishes I wanted to replicate.
Everything is clear, the step by step instructions are accompanied by photos, the layout is unfussy and easy to follow yet somehow seems stuffed with useful additional tips and advice. All the tools and utensils you would find in a traditional Japanese kitchen are shown and explained so that you can make an informed decision about suitable substitutes.
As long as you have access to Asian markets (I live in London so can get most of the ingredients) this is highly recommended as a simple, straightforward and friendly, encouraging guide to competency in a Japanese kitchen. I just wish I'd known about it years ago. I've not seen, nor can I imagine, anything better.

I refer to it regularly. Not only are the pictures great as illustrations for important steps, the layout is clear and organised, and the ingredients are exactly those used by the Japanese for these dishes, without 'compromising' say, sake with other types of wine; and yet the ingredients can be conveniently purchased at Japanese, even other Asian, supermarkets

A lot of the recipes - but seemingly not as many as my favourites, "Japanese: 70 Delectable Dishes from an Elegant Cuisine" and "Everyday Harumi" - are easy to source and prepare. There are sections on simmered dishes (over 15 recipes), broiled and pan-fried dishes (11), deep-fried dishes (9), vinegared and dressed dishes (16), rice and noodles (8), soups (8), 1 or 2 recipes each for steamed dishes, sashimi, one-pot; plus 4 seasonal menus, each with a dozen or so recipes.

My favourite is now "Everyday Harumi" by Harumi Kurihara, who can be seen on NHK (Your Japanese Kitchen) and is known as the Delia Smith of Japanese Cooking.
